🇸🇬 Earlywork Academy Singapore Launch
Earlywork Academy is going international 🌞
When we launched the pilot of our Academy in January 2023, our mission to become the fast track business school for the tech industry seemed like a distant dream.
Five cohorts later, we’ve helped 70+ fellows break into tech sales and partnered with global tech companies such as Monday.com, Deel, HiBob and Podium.
After 7 months, we’ve already hit a $1M+ yearly run rate and achieved profitability.
However, building the fast track business school for the tech industry in only Australia was never our final goal, and today marks an important milestone in the Earlywork journey.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re expanding our program to help ambitious early career talent in Singapore land their first tech sales role.
From early on, we recognised that Singapore plays a critical role in the APAC tech ecosystem alongside Australia.
We officially launched the Earlywork Village there in late 2022, welcoming 100+ members with our first kick-off event hosted at Square Peg Singapore’s office.
Since then, we turned our efforts to launching Earlywork Academy in Australia, but have always kept an eager eye on where we should head to next.
We observed plenty of similarities between Australia and Singapore…
But most painfully, the gap between traditional education and tech careers is widening for aspiring job seekers in Singapore today.
Existing solutions in the market still don’t achieve the employment outcomes that tech job seekers want in a highly competitive market.
We’re building a model that teaches graduates the skills that industry actually needs, is incentive-aligned to land them a job, and coaches them in job search fundamentals.
As such, we believe that Singapore is the first international market that we can meaningfully impact.
We’ve officially opened our recruitment drive for the first Singaporean cohort of Earlywork Academy starting on the 23rd of October.
Know someone in Singapore who’s keen to make a career switch and loves working with people?
Then shoot anyone on the team a message on Slack or Linkedin and we’d be more than happy to chat.
Y’all have been incredibly supportive over the last couple of years through the highs and lows, the experiments and lessons.
We’re absolutely fired up to build vocational education for the startup generation, together 🌏
But for Earlywork, it’s early days 🌞
Ciao for now,
Dan, Jono, Mazz, Ryan, Ben, Sejal 🧡
