As you utilise the internship to gauge your suitability for a particular sector, you will gain insights into your intended field of work in ways that will contribute value to your career in the
long run. 

We work with companies from promising SMEs to MNCs on a range of internship positions. You can also source for your own internship or apply for the Talent Development Programme, an in-house internship within the
