Voices of our Interns 2011
"An enriching experience, acquired and learnt useful lifelong working skills and tips." - Fiona Sim, Diploma in Business in Temasek Poly, CDD Intern.
What are the learning experiences that you have gained so far?
"The experience here at IAL (Institute For Adult Learning) is fun, especially because of the people here that make my experience interesting. I am learning a lot from them, not only in terms of the technical skills, but also in terms of soft skills. Since this is my first office job, it is really an eye opening experience to know what such type of job entails." - Kellie Tedjo, 21, SMU, Degree in Business Management
What are some of the work challenges that you have encountered in WDA so far?
"The pace of work in the ECCE (Early Childhood Care & Education) team is pretty fast, especially with a career fair coming up. I'm still grappling with how I can best fit in and contribute to the team. I’m privileged to have a gentle learning curve as my colleagues are patient with me and have always actively sought to create learning points for me with each task. Well, so far so good and it looks like it will continue to be so." - Lai Guohao, 24, NTU, Bachelor of Arts
Is there anything interesting about working in WDA?
"The work environment here is flexible and easy going which I felt more comfortable to adapt with." - Angie Ong, 22, NTU, Bachelor of Business
