Singapore Chinese Girls’ School Careers Education Day

This is the second year the SCGS Alumni Exco is assisting the school with its Career Education Day. The overwhelming response from alums in support of our alma mater has indeed been heartwarming. It is evident that in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous world driven by disruptive technology, we see new jobs emerging which were non existent say 10 years ago. With digitalization being the future, young children as early as 5 years are already attending Coding classes. Exhibits by lower secondary school students using coding to create Carnival games and the sharing of concepts using Robotics in Logistics are part of today’s enrichment curriculum.

The Media, Communications and Public Relations careers involved new skills set as in social media marketing, data analytics, programmatic advertising etc. These skills set require constant upgrading as technological advancements take on a crazy rate of change. Even writers and authors are moving into eBooks. The playing field has changed drastically.

The SCGS Secondary School Students were also enriched with the sharing of speakers from the Healthcare, Legal, Banking, Finance, Accounting, Management Consultancy, Public Service & Education,Engineering, Architecture & Urban Planning and the Creatives (Art & Design, Theatre) Sectors.

As Millennials are said to prefer working in start-ups,drawn to the Start-up Culture, so Entrepreneurs and Tech Startups Speakers were also given centre stage.

Fellow alumni members who are involved in careers with Community & Social Impact also shared their jobs at NGOs tracking in remote Farmland in Asia & Africa, analysing data, evaluating proposals as Grant-Makers. Super cool!

Students also listened keenly to opportunities in the Singapore Space Technology Industry involving research and other space related activities.

Making a career choice is even tougher than before. Our panel speakers wisely advise the students to be brave and that it is ok to make career changes. They encourage the students to leverage on internships to learn more about the nature of jobs & work environments. Having the right attitude with the eagerness to learn is the key to success.

Looking forward to SCGS Careers Education Day 2019 in celebration of SCGS 120th Anniversary! Calling out to old SCGS girls – give back with your time, join us next year!

P&G recognizes that Digitalization is the key to the future and threw the gauntlet to industry names, such as Accenture, Amazon, Microsoft & Salesforce, SMEs / start-ups and academic experts to solve the biggest challenges in APAC & IMEA across P&G Brands and markets through digital & emerging technologies. The Prize – the opportunity to participate into the P&G Partner Eco-system, co-create Solutions and get a commercial contract to collaborate with P&G to pilot and scale up the Solution to solve business problems.
