Workforce Singapore Hackathon


Despite advancements in technology and hiring processes enhancements to hiring practices,  there are still people in Singapore who have difficulties finding fulfilling jobs, while companies also struggle to find suitable talent to stay competitive and grow their business.

This affects us all, as the existing job matching processes do not fulfil all the needs they claim to. The Workforce Singapore Hackathon invites you to develop new solutions that will help our workers find quality jobs according to their skills, experience, and aspirations, and enable companies to find the right candidate for the right job.

If your startup has a solution or the capability to transform the job matching landscape, we want you to join the Workforce Singapore Hackathon. You will stand a chance to get your solution picked up by WSG for implementation! Start work as a team to build your prototype. Get expert advice from subject matter, tech, and other mentors!


Challenges

Think beyond the universal way of using a CV to apply for a job that is advertised as a job description. There is a wealth of solutions being tested in Singapore and overseas, addressing different parts of the job-matching and hiring process today. How can we build on these ideas to ensure that they fit the Singapore context?

For Employees: How might we use new data, media, technologies, etc. to capture accurate insights, and communicate the different dimensions of a candidate?


For Employers: How can we help traditional SMEs to better understand and articulate their needs, and compete with larger, more recognised companies to attract the right talents?
