Course Introduction
As the world economy becomes more volatile due to protectionism and automation, jobs are lost resulting in more mid-career switchers. Singapore is especially susceptible with our heavy dependence on international free trade.

The new norm is for working adults to expect multiple job changes or even to work in different industries throughout their life time. The proposed course will equip participants with job-search skills now, and for the future.


Course Objectives
This course responds to the urgent need of mid-career switchers (whether for alignment of work interests, or having been retrenched) to create effective résumés to find work quickly in the climate of job dissatisfaction/ loss/ insecurity.

Furthermore, competition for limited job opportunities is a reality and compounds the job-hunting problem. In other words, the ability to create strategic résumés to find continued employment throughout one’s life is crucial.
