FutureReady Voices

Hear from our FutureReady alumni and what they have to say about the programme!

I graduated in August 2022 and started applying for jobs but then, I realised that I had no experience at all and the job market was pretty dry. I was unable to find any positions. Then, I was recommended to join FutureReady and decided to give it a shot. My goal was to use this opportunity to be productive by further developing my professional and soft skills. Another key reason was since this programme was run in collaboration with Accenture, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get an understanding of the role of being a consultant.


Blake Tan

FR1.0 Alumni

I enjoyed the content a lot! It was from a business perspective which I have never had the chance to get exposed to. 

I enjoyed learning about how organisations work, how pitching works and learned at least a little on how life will be like in the corporate world.


Aysha Fateeha

FR2.0 Alumni

Reflecting on my post-event experience with FutureReady, I appreciate the program's impact on my consulting skills through engaging Mini-Pitches and insightful workshops. The mentorship provided a valuable post-event perspective,tailoring to individual goals. Integrating workshop content into real-world scenarios post-event solidifies the practical application. FutureReady's commitment to adaptability post-event makes it a promising avenue for post-event professional development with hands-on and tailored learning experiences personally to me.
