CareersFinder is a new add-on feature on Workforce Singapore (WSG)’s current MyCareersFuture portal to empower all individuals to take charge of their career health by allowing users to better plan their upskilling and career needs through personalised jobs and skills insights. This new tool forms part of a broader effort to improve the career health of Singaporeans, and the beta version of CareersFinder is expected to launch in Q3 of 2023.
Available on WSG’s MyCareersFuture portal, CareersFinder is a personalised jobs and skills recommender which provides a more seamless user experience for individuals looking to upskill or make a career switch to progress in their careers. It uses data on skills adjacencies and job transitions in the labour market to help jobseekers identify new career opportunities based on their individual profiles and recommend suitable training programmes to help them achieve their respective career goals.
Currently, individuals looking to progress in their careers or explore a new role would need to research on the career opportunities and determine their upskilling needs and suitable training courses. CareersFinder consolidates these information and services from across MyCareersFuture, the Skills Framework1
, to provide users with personalised jobs and skills related recommendations, generated from their responses to a series of quiz questions.
The CareersFinder tool harnesses data and artificial intelligence to provide jobseekers with more personalised jobs and skills insights to improve job matching. An example of a CareersFinder user journey is as follows:
CareersFinder would benefit all individuals, including:
- Individuals who wish to explore new career opportunities but do not know where to start;
- Individuals who wish to branch out into adjacent job scopes and wish to find out the required skills; and
- Individuals who wish to re-enter the workforce
More information about the beta version of CareersFinder will be available in Q3 of 2023.
