Job seekers have various help options open to them

We agree with Dr Grace Chew Chye Lay about the need for individuals to have access to career counselling and information on the job market (Job seekers need help to plug information gap; May 8)

Job seekers who need job search advice can tap various avenues for career-related information and resources.

Digital resources like the MySkillsFuture portal provide job seekers with information on jobs and careers, as well as the corresponding skills needed.

Individuals can also access MyCareersFuture.sg to find jobs that are best matched to their skills and other requirements.

Should they require in-depth discussions, WSG career coaches provide one-to-one career coaching and counselling services (including phone coaching) to those who are unsure of their career direction as well as customised support for those who encounter other employment barriers.

Information on the suite of Adapt and Grow programmes is also available on WSG's corporate website and at WSG's Careers Connect.

Job seekers who wish to be assisted by a career coach can visit www.wsg.gov.sg/careermatching or contact WSG's Careers Connect on 6883-5885 or NTUC's Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) on 6474-0606.
