An employee portal has been launched in Singapore to help employees find their new jobs, with more than half of them asking questions on LinkedIn and other online platforms.
According to LinkedIn, Singaporean employees who have not previously worked at a company can sign up via the portal and then receive job offers on the platform.
They can also upload a CV, resume and cover letter to show employers.
According a report by Singapore’s National Institute of Skills (NIS) in May, over 90% of Singaporean IT workers have already completed their training.
The report said the portal is intended to provide a “quick and easy way” for those not already in a position to find a job.
The portal, which was launched in February and has been used by more than 5,000 Singaporeans, is available to employees in a variety of roles, including senior management, sales, finance and sales support.
The NIS report said around half of Singaporeans interviewed for the report said they had used the portal for job searching.
The Portal has already been used in a number of industries, such as banking, insurance and retail, the report added.
The company said it had received over 500,000 job applications in the first five days of the portal’s launch, and that it would continue to expand the portal in the coming months.
