On 26 March 2021, a talent outreach webinar was conducted to share the industry outlook with 213 students from the ITE, local polytechnics and universities. This was a joint effort by JTC, AAIS, e2i and the Aerospace Engineering Sector Coordination Team to provide information on the availability of jobs, and the skills needed to seize opportunities available even in the current climate.
The webinar was the first of its kind – integrating live-sharing, corporate videos, and virtual shop floor tours by three aerospace companies, namely Singapore Component Solutions, Collins Aerospace and Bombardier Aerospace Services. The company representatives provided an overview of the various departments in their operations, shared on their latest technologies and digitalization initiatives, as well as the internship and career opportunities available. The rich content of the webinar showcased MRO as an exciting and dynamic industry to work in.
Post-event survey feedback showed that students found the session to be insightful in providing an overview of the various operations, the career progression opportunities and the positive longer-term prospects of the aerospace sector. They also expressed keen interests in Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and other digital trends.
*The Inspiring Your Aviation Journey was part of a series of aerospace careers events that will span the year, a lead-up to Aerospace Day 2021 (scheduled in October 2021).
