Career Trial

The Career Trial (previously known as Work Trial) Programme is part of the suite of career services offered by Workforce Singapore (WSG) and e2i to strengthen the employability of locals, through a short-term stint with an employer. This programme will help to address the concern most have, regarding whether job applicants and company are the ‘right fit’ for each other. The Career Trial Programme will thus help job seekers and employers get to know each other better before both parties sign on the dotted line.

As part of the Adapt and Grow initiative to help Singapore Citizens adapt to changing job demands and enhance their employability, Career Trial has been enhanced to allow employers and individuals, as well as Persons with Disabilities (PWD) to better assess job fit.
