News reports of PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians) losing their jobs in Singapore by the thousands are almost a daily occurrence.
PUBLISHED November 2, 2016
A recent bi-annual Macroeconomic Review by MAS showed that some PMET jobs in some sectors are becoming obsolete.
The changing face of job roles and technology disruption has caught workers unawares — they find themselves suddenly unemployable without the right skill sets.
The disruptors are tech startups and enterprises. These industries are specifically the ones looking to hire. The article excerpt above laments the lack of talent despite there being a demand for specific job roles.
As a SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (SSG) partner which focuses on Just-in-Time skills training and on-demand learning, Lithan is the solution for any PME, skills upgrader or job seeker to acquire the right skills to re-enter the workforce in areas where jobs are in demand.

Various programmes are available to assist workers with course fees for up to 90 per cent funding. Train and Place (TnP), Place and Train (PnT) and Professional Conversion Programmes (PCP) are also attractive reasons for workers to take control of their career change and development.
Lithan has launched a Express Technopreneurship Programme to help these workers understand what working in a startup entails, acquire new relevant skills and get placed in these new digital roles.
A Free Career Seminar is being held on 11 November 2016 to provide deep insights into how these workers can use the Express Technopreneurship Programme to step into exciting new high growth jobs with Tech Startups.
