Fowl Play is a card game created in partnership with CareerSocius, a Singapore-based social enterprise that empowers job seekers to maximize their career potential through enhancing their personal brand and career skills.
Today we live in a very complex, uncertain, and ever-changing world, where the nature of work and jobs are evolving rapidly. Our generation is also bombarded by information from every direction, telling us the best ways to live our lives. It is not surprising that many of us get confused and lose our way, especially in the pursuit of our careers.
Passionate about tackling challenges faced by youth in navigating their careers, our team participated in the Youth Action Challenge (YAC) in 2020, organized by the National Youth Council and the Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY). Through our research of Jobs & Future of Work, we developed a Career Resilience model (SPARK) to help working professionals overcome career challenges and setbacks, and emerged as one of the finalists during the competition.
Initially, we explored a few options like building a gamified app and conducting workshops around the SPARK model. But after multiple rounds of iteration, we ultimately came up with the idea of creating Fowl Play, a card game to facilitate fun and meaningful conversations about our careers in a social setting.
Through Fowl Play, we hope young working professionals can relate to the common scenarios faced in their careers and tap on the collective wisdom of their friends to better ride the waves of their career journey.
