"The second edition of the MSC Maritime Careers Workshop was held at Pan Pacific Singapore earlier this afternoon. Organised by the Maritime Singapore Connect (MSC) Office – an initiative of the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF), the event serves as the unit’s ongoing efforts amongst other initiatives, to attract more Singaporeans to join the maritime industry. Participants had the rare opportunity to find out more from seven leading local and international maritime companies about the wide range of career opportunities available in the shipping sector at the event. In line with the industry’s desire to attract more talents in both maritime and non-maritime fields, MSC Office had expanded the programme this year to include graduates of all disciplines and working professionals who were new to the workforce. At its previous edition, only maritime and engineering students were involved. Over 100 university undergraduates from across all disciplines and working professionals with less than two years of work experience gathered for a time of networking and exploring on the myriad of job opportunities provided by an industry that contributes to 7% of Singapore’s GDP. Interest in the Careers Workshop surged this year, with numbers double that of the inaugural edition. A highlight of the event is the breakout sessions, where representatives from companies such as Jurong Port, Maersk Singapore, Pacific Carriers Limited (PCL), PACC Offshore Services Holdings (POSH), PSA Corporation, QBE Insurance (Singapore) and Western Bulk share about their businesses and typical job roles provided by their organisation. The MSC Maritime Careers Workshop follows on from the recent launch of the new Maritime Singapore Connect website (www.maritimesgconnect.com) last month, as a one-stop resource for information of interest to students and jobseekers. As part of MSC Office’s ongoing efforts to further profile the industry, we are currently lining up interview opportunities with those who are currently working in the maritime industry. In addition, a MSC Office spokesperson will also be able to share with you and your readers more on the website, how it will be beneficial to the public & the maritime industry, and how automation and digitisation is transforming the maritime industry. Should you have any interview requests or require more information about the website, please do not hesitate to contact me, Nurhayati at nurhayati@righthook.com.sg / +65 8218 4422 or Gladys Ngiam at Gladys@righthook.com.sg / +65 97427792.
