Tech here, there, everywhere
From work, to ordering food to dating, technology now pervades just about every aspect of our lives. To many youths, the hot field of tech is definitely attractive. “Is it hard to get in?” Well, breaking into this growth field is a lot easier than you might think.
While some see this as a threat, perhaps it’s time to see this as a golden opportunity to jumpstart or pivot your career. The rise of technology has led to all kinds of new career paths that we couldn’t even imagine a few years ago. That said, Singapore is in the middle of a tech skills challenge. As we continue to attract investments from global technology giants, there is a growing need for more skilled tech workers. Yesss, the opportunities are right in front of us, but it’s vital to have the relevant skills though. Agree? “Where do I start?” you may ask.
Enter LIT DISCOvery 2022.
You won’t want to miss this hybrid one-day event, with content specially curated to help youths achieve their aspirations, progress or pivot in an increasingly tech-enabled workplace to be equipped for the future economy.
