On 23rd August 2022, as part of Google Singapore’s 15th anniversary, we hosted the very first Hybrid Skills Ignition SG Career Fair! Nearly 300 newly skilled talents participated in onsite and online career-enhancing activities, meeting companies such as Ninja Van, FairPrice Group and IHiS (Integrated Health Information Systems).
The event was designed for graduates of Skills Ignition SG and Google Career Certificates, which has trained over 5,500 Singaporeans & PRs and enabled 3 in 4 trainees to find a new job within 6 months of graduation.
At the fair attended by Minister for Communications and Information, Josephine Teo, Google announced their new Traineeship Program - partnered with Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) - which will train students for 12 months full-time. The program consists of three months of vocational training and nine months of on-the-job training at Google Singapore. The newly structured program offers two tracks: Professional Cloud Architect or Digital Marketing.
Upon successful completion, all trainees will receive a certificate of completion and get access to the Skills Ignition SG Outplacement Programme which we proudly run, here at 33 Talent.
In line with Google's mission to “Empower Singaporeans today, for tomorrow”, our goal to empower people to thrive continues as we assist talents in pivoting their careers armed with their newly acquired skills in Digital Marketing, Cloud Technology, and Data. Offering these types of services has been hugely rewarding for us and we’re delighted to help shape the future of Singapore’s digital talent.
