National Servicemen QR Codes: Helps Servicemen in Singapore Find Jobs

You know what QR Codes are and how they’re used in recruitment.

The Enhanced Career and Education Fair (ECEF) held in Singapore allotted each full-time national servicemen (NSFs) a unique QR Code. The QR Code encoded the details of servicemen’s educational qualifications and a list of their skill sets.

The aim of the fair was to help the national servicemen secure jobs post the completion of their two year training period.

“Because they have been concentrating on national service for the last two years, they may need a little bit more help in order to get updated on the latest employment trends and also to get tips on career development.” – Josephine Teo, Second Manpower Minister.

The NSFs had to register one month prior to the event. The registration form included the questions on the candidate’s industry preference, expected salary, educational qualification, and other skills.

At the event, the NSFs were given lanyards with unique QR Codes. Potential employers can simply scan the QR Code to learn more about the candidate.

“This (QR Code) reduces the need for us to spend time recording their details.For this round, we actually spend more time talking with them and understanding their career aspiration and whether they are suitable in the roles for our company.” – Pauline Loo, Group Head, Human Resources

Approximate 4000 NSFs from the various national services such as the police, civil services, and the army attended the event.

An attendee, Corporal Prateep Naidu said,

“You can just apply with your resume online, I find that quite flexible. I don’t have to be there in person to apply.”

This is one way how Singapore is using QR Codes.
