What is it?
Announced during DPM Heng Swee Keat’s Unity Budget in February 2020, the volunteer Career Advisors initiative is part of the SkillsFuture Mid-Career Support Package. The initiative aims to provide individuals (especially mature workers) with peer-level support and career guidance as they navigate professional pathways to advance their careers, or transition to other jobs.
Workforce Singapore is building a pool of volunteer Career Advisors from various professional communities who will draw from their respective industry experience to provide their peers and colleagues with sector and occupation-specific career advice, and to connect them to helpful resources. Through the volunteer Career Advisors initiative, workers will have the opportunity to access important insights on industry trends and emerging skills to make informed career decisions with greater confidence.
The volunteer Career Advisors initiative has been launched for the Electronics, Healthcare, Information and Communication Technology, Logistics and Supply Chain, Sustainability and more.
