Tough Job Market? Get Supported in Your Job Search

The COVID-19 coronavirus has taken a toll on Singapore’s economy, impacting many workers in the process. At Workforce Singapore’s Careers Connect, our goal is to support jobseekers to find work and even more so in this trying period. Here, you can get advice, online resources and services to support you in your job search.

While some companies experience a slowdown amidst the Covid-19 situation, others involved in Covid-19-related operations, and those impacted by manpower disruptions, are still looking for workers for their day-to-day operations.

Another service that WSG has brought online is our series of career workshops. These include essential job search knowledge such as resume writing and interview skills, effective job search techniques and tips on building a professional network.

The Singapore government has rolled out a series of income relief grants and support schemes to help Singaporeans who have been affected by the Covid-19 situation.

Previously, with the extension of the Circuit Breaker, the government has put in place measures to further support our people and businesses during this period. Learn more about this additional support for individuals and businesses during the Circuit Breaker extension.

Now’s the time to review and get some clarity in your career direction, so that when the situation turns around, you will find yourself ready and prepared for new opportunities.

We also find that seeking professional advice, especially when you are at a crossroads or thinking of a career change, will allow you to make better, informed decisions.
