The best career advice ever

The Best Career Advice Ever

This is a guest post by Huifen, who is a lawyer, currently pursing her masters in law at Edinburgh University. She writes about technology and law at aicalico.com On 21 Nov, I attended a careers masterclass organised by the Saltire Foundation at Edinburgh University. It was one of the best classes I’ve ever attended. I’ll like to share some learning points here. The speaker, Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris, spoke honestly about how women can succeed in male-dominated fields. This is her professional area of research. However, I took away great advice applicable to all, regardless of gender or stage of their career. It also applies to people working for themselves or building a startup. 1. No one will ever care more about your career/ growth than you yourself. This seems like such a truism, yet I saw many in the audience nodding along with me when Dr Doyle-Morris said this. In our working lives, we often think that hard work and results alone will naturally bring accolades and promotions. Or that one’s line manager or HR …

The first ever Singapore Geek Girls event — girls, guys, and geeks galore

  This is a edited version of the original blogpost by Zane Kripe, a PhD student at the Leiden University Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. Zane is currently researching geek culture in South East Asia (Singapore, Indonesia) and explores what it means to be a geek in the region.       On 7th January, I had a wonderful opportunity to take part in the first Singapore Geek Girls meetup organized by Joyce Huang and Mingfei Yan. Being a girl myself I am very interested in what it means to be a geek girl in Singapore and I was extremely lucky to arrive in Singapore right on time for it. I believe it was two months ago that the idea of the group was born and it apparently addresses a hot spot here in Singapore, as more than 30 people gathered in the cozy Group Therapy Coffee on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn’t a girls-only event and we had six guys who seemed to feel rather comfortable amongst dozens of cheerful and excited …
