Google to offer skills upgrading opportunities to 3,000 jobseekers In Singapore

In a recent press meeting, tech giant Google has announced that it will offer new jobs and skill training programs for about 3,000 mid-career and entry-level jobseekers in Singapore. The firm has also stated that it will provide approximately 100 job roles at its office in Singapore and help 500 job seekers work with Google's most trusted organizations. The remaining 2,400 places will be confirmed based on the performance after the training courses.

The training courses will be offered in the field of digital marketing and cloud technology. The 'Skill Ignition SG' program will be done in partnership with local authorities, and also will be collaborating with SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package. Google is also working with various other organizations such as the Economic Development Board, Infocomm Media Development Authority, and SkillsFuture Singapore to provide job seekers more opportunities.

"We are delighted to partner with the government in supporting 3,000 local jobseekers through Skills Ignition SG. Thank and recognize our industry partners who have stepped up during this difficult job climate. While the pandemic has impacted jobs and career opportunities, it has also accelerated digitalization by businesses and increased demand for digital skills. We hope this program will help bridge that gap," said Scott Beaumont, president at Google Asia Pacific.
