Data jobs are not limited to the IT or Tech Industry. Companies are now beginning to understand the importance of gathering, understanding, and using data to drive business decisions. 

The current global pandemic is highlighting this need, particularly in the healthcare industry.  In Singapore alone, 70% of long-term roles are required for healthcare support and administrative support roles (Businesswire, 2021).

Join us on 20 November and find out more about the healthcare industry, the advanced methods and AI technologies being used in human trials, and the skills required to be part of this growing industry projected to reach US $ 11Billion in 2022.

Join us on 20 Nov, and listen to Dr. Aileen Dualan, Global Medical Affairs Lead, APAC at MSD, and Jason Tamara Widjaja, Director of Artificial Intelligence at the Singapore IT Hub, MSD, who will unpack:

  • how you can be part of this growing industry – highlighting which data and soft skills are essential for getting hired.
  • why diversity in clinical trials is critical for patients, especially in a global pandemic; and
  • what AI bias is and how to prevent it;

Register for this free and exciting global discussion and networking session!
