A 1-day Free Event @The Future Academy

"Can you really apply what you learnt in school at work?"

This is one of the most common question people have for fresh graduates. According to a study by SMU and JP Morgan, Singapore is facing an acute skills gap between what students are learning and what the industry needs. In fact, 61% of graduates felt that that the most challenging obstacle they faced in their first job was a lack of industry knowledge.

Chances are: you’ve thought about what you should be doing in life—more than once. You wonder if the conventional path suits you. Is there something else out there that beckons?

Fret not! This 1-day event will give you the answers you need. This could possibly be the only event of the year to pack all the insights on various industries into 1 day. This means that you can find out about Marketing, Engineering, Finance, Media and Communications, Biomedical Science, Sports Science, you name it!
