Entering the Future of Employment in a Digital Revolution

Entering the Future of Employment in a Digital Revolution
ACE’s Startup Career Fair returns after a strong debut in 2017


Singapore, 21 March 2018     After a resoundingly successful launch last year, the Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) will be presenting its second edition of the Startup Career Fair. The career fair will welcome job seekers and those curious about startups to experience Singapore’s dynamic startup ecosystem on Tuesday, 27 March 2018 at the JTC LaunchPad @ one-north.

Job seekers will be delighted to discover numerous job opportunities with some of Singapore’s most prominent startups and disruptors, More than 65 startups will be offering over 250 full-time, part-time, and internship positions in sectors such as e-commerce, fintech, and creative agencies. Students, fresh grads, and PMETs looking for a mid-career switch can aspire to get engrossed in casual chats with startup founders, secure interviews on-the-spot, or embark on exclusive tours of the vibrant offices of startups.

Whether a young adult or an experienced worker, job-skills mismatch remains a key challenge in employment. The latest annual labour market report by Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower revealed a gap between demands of the job market and the individuals’ job skills. As such, the career fair has scheduled a line-up of talks focusing on this critical issue:
·       Reskill and Upskill – Key traits of an Industry Transformation Leader’ will host industry transformation experts on what it takes to excel in a tight economy.
·       Elevating one’s career prospects with a valuable head-start via work-study programmes takes the spotlight in ‘Regional Talent Crush vs Local Talent Crunch’, supporting fresh polytechnic and ITE graduates’ transition into the workforce.
·       Re-Thinking About the Future of Employment’ and the SkillsFuture Advice Workshop address the changing trends of employment, and the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of planning diligently for the years ahead.
