Job Trends In Singapore

According to the analysis, remote work options dropped from 7.8% to 4.1%.

In a report, Guy Berger an economist said, last year’s economic climate is causing some companies to “pull back on the flexibility” during Covid-19.

Though, it is important to know which jobs are in demand. Data shows that jobs such as cybersecurity engineer, backend developer, cloud engineer and artificial intelligence engineer are at their peak these days.

” The growth of AI, in resending focus on cybersecurity and continued shift towards digital is leading to growth in technical jobs”, Pooja Chabria, Career Expert and head of the editorial for Asia-Pacific at LinkedIn

In addition, she also said that it is “not unexpected” for tech jobs to dominate Singapore’s list. Whereas, the country has built a strong presence as a startup destination.

“From a geographical perspective, Singapore is a good base for tech companies who are looking to enter South-East Asia and other APAC markets”.

Demand For Tech Workers Are At Peak

Though, a number of tech companies, including Indonesia’s GoTo group, Singapore’s Sea Group, and Carousell faced massive macroeconomic conditions last year in Southeast Asia.

Chabria still seems optimistic saying that this will be a transition year for the tech industry and may return to more normal hiring levels.

“Overall demand for workers remains strong with workers transitioning to other jobs within and across the industry, Chabria said.

“Tech jobs don’t just serve the tech sector but are also in demand in other sectors as they continue to invest in digital transformation”.

As per LinkedIn, jobs that focus on business growth and acquisitions of new customers are in high demand in countries like India.
