JobStreet, the leading career and talent partner backed by SEEK, is set to unveil its revolutionary free learning platform, seekMAX, to bolster career opportunities and promote professional growth. This groundbreaking initiative will be unveiled at the eagerly awaited SEEK Better Career Fair, designed to offer Singaporeans an avenue to upskill and explore new job prospects.

The seekMAX platform, nestled within the JobStreet mobile app, is a pioneering in-app learning content hub aimed at empowering professionals to upskill and elevate their careers. This ambitious endeavor will provide millions of JobStreet users in Singapore with access to a treasure trove of over 1,100 educational videos, all for free. What’s more, seekMAX offers the sought-after “seekMAX Community,” a space that enables users to connect with industry leaders, engage in career discussions, and stay attuned to industry trends.

Since its inception, nearly one in three monthly active users on the JobStreet platform has embraced seekMAX to learn new skills and share insights within the vibrant community. Leveraging this surge in demand for professional upskilling, seekMAX has joined hands with influential partners, including Microsoft, Complexly, TED, Deutsche Welle, and local luminaries like Annette Lee, Dr. Jay Kay, Janus Chan, and Jason Ho. This partnership has enabled the platform to provide a plethora of engaging bite-sized videos, encompassing career advice, industry-specific content, soft skills, leadership tips, and even the innovative seekMAX Original series, “Salary Squad,” which addresses compensation and benefits inquiries.

The collaboration with renowned entities such as Bloomberg, The New York Times, and Tech in Asia bolsters seekMAX’s reputation for offering high-quality and insightful content. This strategic move allows Singaporeans to stay abreast of the latest industry trends and hone their skills with expert guidance.

Chew Siew Mee, Managing Director of JobStreet Singapore, underlined the significance of continuous upskilling as Singapore adapts to the era of Industry 4.0.

“As Singapore approaches Industry 4.0, where automation powered by data can perform everyday tasks, Singaporeans must evolve and upskill in order to stay relevant. We have noticed that while many companies are now actively sending their employees for training, learning and development are also an individual’s responsibility. In a recent JobStreet survey, we found that 75% of respondents engage in work-related learning via social media and e-learning platforms. It is heartening to see Singaporeans taking charge of their development, which is why we’re excited to launch seekMAX in Singapore and offer Singaporeans a free and easily accessible platform where they can grow their skills, knowledge and career. The bite-sized content we offer is ideal for the busy Singaporean and we look forward to continuing to provide quality content as a dedicated career partner for Singaporeans.”

The remarkable success of seekMAX since its launch in Indonesia in 2022, followed by Malaysia and now Singapore, is evident with over 2.5 million users having collectively spent over 6.5 million minutes engrossed in its educational videos. The platform’s content covers a wide spectrum, with job search advice, career guidance, salary insights, and personal development being particularly popular.

Lewis Ng, Chief Operating Officer, Asia at SEEK, expressed SEEK’s longstanding commitment to bridging the gap between job seekers and employers.

“As the leading employment platform and career partner in the region for over 25 years, our goal has always been to bridge the gap between jobseekers and employers. We’re proud to help people lead more productive working lives, as well as to help organisations succeed.
