AI for Career Guidance and Workforce Insights
Presented by SGInnovate
Partnered with ALSET and e2i
We often hear that AI will drive massive disruptions in the global workforce, but what if AI can also help people find jobs, develop skills, and plan for careers more effectively?
Many organisations—including leading multinationals, local startups, government agencies, and educational institutions—are working to harness the power of AI to support career preparation, lifelong learning, and workforce resilience.
While AI will most certainly replace some jobs, it might also create new opportunities as well. This panel will explore the potential for AI to help people navigate an increasingly complex and competitive job market.
