Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are students selected for CareerContact's Digital Skills Sprint?

    We go through a holistic selection process - based on your responses to the application questions, we determine what interests you have and how you might be able to contribute to our June 2021 cohort. Pre-requisite technology skills are definitely NOT a requirement. If you already know how to code, that's great and please let us know, but this is not a deciding factor for selection. We want students who are motivated to learn new tools quickly, and who demonstrate a sincere interest in exploring an industry that may not be familiar to them.

  • For the first two weeks, you will be learning skills in user experience, digital marketing and web development through CareerContact’s curriculum. You will be equipped with right-sized knowledge to start working with your assigned partner enterprise. You might find yourself learning to use Figma for a couple of days, then tinkering with a low-code platform such as Squarespace. Over the next four weeks, you'll work closely with your assigned partner enterprise to address a digital business challenge they face. Don't worry, you will not be completely on your own! You are paired with an experienced industry mentor to guide you. However, be prepared to step out of your comfort zone - this is where learning happens!

  • Our industry mentors come from a range of academic and industry backgrounds. We have a cybersecurity marketing professional, a product designer at a leading tech firm, a doctoral student at the University of Cambridge, etc. More industry mentors will be added to our list in the next couple of months!

  • We've worked with Tribe Tours, a travel and tourism startup that provides personalized local tours in Singapore; Perapera, an edtech startup that builds machine learning algorithms to personalize foreign language learning for the Taiwanese market; Coffee Break, a 3rd-generation kopi hawker aiming to revitalize the kopi industry with modern twists; Guang's Fresh Mart, a 2nd-generation seafood wholesaler. For Tribe Tours and Perapera, students worked on content strategy and digital marketing projects. For Coffee Break, students conducted market and consumer research, and proposed engagement events. For Guang's Fresh Mart, students were involved in UX design and brand marketing.

  • During the final week of the programme, CareerContact provides a workshop on creating your portfolio to showcase your progress and learning journey during this Digital Skills Sprint. We will go through how you might like to discuss this experience in your college applications. Some of our past students in the IB Diploma Programme have also chosen to include this experience as part of CAS (Creativity, Action, Service). We are willing to help you tailor this experience for your next steps!
