The aim of education is to secure a job in the future that has demand and a high salary. Many Malaysian graduates choose to find work in Singapore because of the higher salary and foreign exchange. Therefore, it would be of interest to students after SPM or O-Levels in Malaysia to know what the future job demand in Singapore is.

Students after high school or Pre-University in Malaysia are often confused or not sure of what to study. Some choose the course simply because their friends are going for it while others just listen to their relatives without checking to see if the course actually suits them or has a good career prospect.

Demand for digital competency is high, but so are soft skills, according to the 2018 Emerging Jobs in Singapore Report by LinkedIn.

The report shows that the jobs that require hybrid skills are high in demand, which can help local organisations navigate their digital transformation journey.

According to LinkedIn, the top five emerging jobs for 2018 are:

  1. Data Scientist
  2. Cyber Security Specialist
  3. User Experience Designer
  4. Head of Digital
  5. Content Specialist

These five jobs may be related to technology, but many would require management and communication skills on top of knowledge about the tech. Their actual roles are varied and diverse, reflecting a labour market that values talent with a hybrid set of complementary skills.

Feon Ang, vice president of talent and learning solutions for APAC at LinkedIn says, “Our Emerging Jobs Report highlights the reality that new jobs are emerging more rapidly than at any other time in history. Traditional roles have evolved into hybrids that did not exist five years ago. While it’s no surprise that the top emerging jobs for Singapore are all related to technology, many of them require management and communications skills making them hybrids of new and traditional roles – such as user experience designer.”

With the boom in the digital economy, every country is racing to build its digital workforce, and Singapore is no exception.

Since data scientist is the job that is fastest emerging and most in demand, companies would be looking out for those with skills in machine learning and data analytics.

While Singapore looks toward home-grown talent, the modern workforce is highly mobile and open to moving across borders.

Meanwhile in other sectors, the demand for content has surged, leading to job roles such as content specialists, which according to LinkedIn were not as popular five years ago. This job is unique to Singapore, with most content in English, organisations are not just seeking locals to fill the roles, but also international talent from UK, Australia and India.

The financial sector on the other hand has been increasingly investing in establishing a bigger digital footprint. Hence, this brings about the emergence of the user experience designer and head of digital roles in Singapore.

These roles are also breaking out of technology companies and spreading across the workforce.

With the global and local talent shortage, HR and talent acquisition teams would have to evolve and innovate the way they look for talent. As skills commonly associated with these emerging jobs evolve, hiring based on a candidate’s title is no longer adequate and accurate in filling these gaps.

“Digital competence, as we now know, is composed by a blend of hard and soft skills. This competition for talent will only grow fiercer, so organisations need to build an adaptable workforce. Real-time understanding of the demand and supply of skills, talent pools and talent movement is the first step towards building talent intelligence at scale,” says Ang.
