Gaining Industry Experience​

“My internship experience gave me the opportunity to dive deep into the vast and exciting world of public relations and marketing! I learnt how to create content, coordinate events and conduct market research. I am thankful that the skills I have learnt in NP through my diploma have helped me to excel in my role.”​

“One of the key things I’ve learnt during my internship is that every child has a different learning style and pace. To better engage with young learners, I learnt how to use a variety of different approaches to teach a subject. I find great joy and satisfaction from working with children, and hope to continue playing a part in shaping the next generation.”

"I was attracted to the OCBC Tech Young Talent programme as it offers a one-year curated internship experience during which I can gain experience in technology areas I am personally interested in. Since the internship started, I’ve had the chance to hone my technical skills, and develop soft skills like networking and project management. I have even received personalised mentorship in the ever-evolving field of data engineering! To top it off, I got to learn about state-of-the-art technologies such as the world’s first enterprise data cloud system, Cloudera, and data governance tools such as Apache Ranger. The hands-on learning has helped me to develop confidence and the career advice from my mentor has provided insights into the big data ​industry."

Experiencing Startup Life

“As a marketing intern with The FinLab, UOB's Innovation Accelerator, a major project I worked on was the 2-day virtual ASEAN SME Tech Summit which happens annually. As companies were connected to tech solutions providers online, I was also given networking opportunities with counterparts in Malaysia and Thailand. Being a part of GEIP has given me the confidence to pursue my own startup. With the help of my GEIP mentor, we managed to secure a $5,000 funding from NP’s Kickstart Fund for our​ startup, ‘The Social Pitstop’, which aims to help organisations better plan their Corporate Social Responsibility programmes!"

“It was a dream come true for me to get selected for NP’s GEIP where I interned as a software engineer for a Silicon Valley startup. I spearheaded a project to automate scripts on a cloud server and ensured that technical problems from clients were resolved quickly. In addition, I collaborated with a course mate to develop a platform to verify e-commerce users.”

Impacting our Communities

“I came to know about NP’s Civic Internship Programme and decided to join it as I was seeking an opportunity to apply my accountancy skills in the real world, and yet do good at the same time. I did just that at Samsui Kitchen, a social enterprise that hires prison inmates to prepare meals for nursing home residents. During the internship, I handled its accounts!”

Building our Future

“I’ve always wanted to work on renewable energy projects to combat climate in the future. So, I was really thrilled to go on board NP’s Future City Programme. During the stint with Sembcorp Solar’s Operations and Maintenance department, I helped to test, commission and inspect solar panels at Singapore’s largest floating solar farm at Tengah Reservoir!”
