Survey saw a 2.5 fold increase in those aged 60 and above taking up Diploma studies

This can be observed in respondents keen on diploma studies, with an increase from 18% in 2013 to 26% this year. (Read More Here!)

What I learnt in school and how I apply it to work

By Juliet Soh
I read Political Science in university. While most of my friends went on to soar in their careers as civil servants, where they meet with foreign delegates and make policies, I chose to be in the media industry - where I've always imagined myself to be in.

I toiled as a writer for lifestyle magazines for most of my work life, and realise that I don't need to understand international relations and diplomacy (my specialisation) in my article about the latest mascara that lengthens your lashes by 13 times.

Helping You Get An Edge

In today's wired world where information can be gleaned with a single mouse click, most people have multiple personalities in the online world, ranging from Facebook to Twitter to even LinkedIn.

The all-important idea is how you utilise these different avenues to get an edge over the rest of the working force. Our latest workshop, The Guide to Job Hunting in Today's World, helped 39 participants increase their chances of getting their ideal job.

A Weekend to Remember

With new features, a bigger marketing budget, and a refreshing approach to publicity, the JobsCentral Career & Learning Fair 2009 was truly in a league of its own.

The annual fair, brainchild of online career portal JobsCentral, has gained increasing recognition since its inaugural launch three years ago. Despite a placid job market, this year’s event garnered a record number of 110 exhibitors (comprising leading employers and education providers) and received more than 50,000 visitors.

Exciting new features
This year, the JobsCentral Fair introduced three new elements to the event:
• A by-invitation-only networking session
• Free seminars conducted by industry professionals
• A job application engine on the event website

Held on the morning of the first day, the networking session was a closed-door event, exclusively for a selected pool of JobsCentral portal users. Invitations were sent based on the exhibitors’ general recruitment criteria.

JCLF 2009: In a League of its Own

With new features, a bigger marketing budget, and a refreshing approach to publicity, the JobsCentral Career & Learning Fair 2009 is truly in a league of its own.

In its fourth year running, the annual fair, brainchild of online career portal JobsCentral, has gained increasing recognition from both employers and jobseekers since its inaugural launch three years ago. One might expect such events to be fairly quiet of late, considering that the economy is still recuperating from the aftermath of last year’s financial crisis. However, the JobsCentral Career & Learning Fair tells a different story.

This year, despite a placid job market, the event has successfully garnered the participation of more than 70 leading employers and education providers, and expects to receive at least 50,000 visitors across the two-day event.

New features
This year, the JobsCentral Fair is excited to introduce three new elements to the event – a by-invitation-only networking session, seminars conducted by industry professionals, and a new engine on the event website.

Held on the morning of the first day, the networking session is a closed-door event, exclusively for a selected pool of JobsCentral portal users. The invitation criteria are set based on the exhibitors’ general recruitment criteria. In addition to the opportunity to network with recruiters before the event is officially opened to the general public, networking session attendees’ resumes (for those who RSVP online before July 31st) are compiled and given to the exhibitors to facilitate further career discussion between the parties.
