Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Who can post a job opening?

We currently accept job postings from companies and government agencies in Singapore who are looking for AI/ML/Data Engineers and Scientists. If you are a recruitment firm or headhunter, AI Singapore will contact you for more information before approving your account.

Who can submit a resume?

We are supporting our AI Apprentices (past and present) only. We will not be accepting applications from candidates outside of the AI Apprenticeship Programme.

Can I contact the AI talent directly?

Employers who have registered for an account may request for more information on a profile (Linkedin/Resume) by writing in.

How qualified are the Apprentices?

Some of our AI Apprentices do hold Masters and/or PhDs in disciplines such as Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics. Upon completion of the AI Apprenticeship Programme, they would also be certified at the AI Engineer Associate [AICE (Assoc)] level. For more information on the different AI certification levels, please go to

Why do you only train AI Engineers (and not AI Scientists or Machine Learning Engineers)?

AI Scientists usually possess advanced graduate degrees (usually a PhD) and predominantly undertake research to
develop new or novel ways algorithms to solve different AI challenges.

AI Engineers typically possess an undergraduate degree, and their main deliverable is to find the best available algorithm for use to solve a business use case or problem statement. It takes less time to train individuals with a certain level of programming background to be proficient in designing, developing and quickly deploying an AI product – which is what the industry really requires.

Do I have to pay to submit a job listing?

There are no costs. Our goal for this portal is to help match industry to our AI Apprentices.

Why can't I see my job posting?

AI Singapore curates all job posting, and only approved  job postings will be displayed within 3-5 business days. AI Singapore reserves the right to reject your submission.

What AI tools and frameworks would the apprentices know?

Most of the projects done by the apprentices would be built in Python and using frameworks such as Tensorflow/Keras, PyTorch. They would also have built their tools on platforms such as Microsoft Azure Cloud and Spark/Databricks.
