Mentorship Workshop & TP Students' Visit on the 5th of December!

In the last mentoring workshop for 2018, 18 Mentors from various companies were trained to be able to better communicate and engage interns they hire. This round, we have invited 13 Temasek Polytechnic School of Business interns to share their thoughts on internship and what makes their internship a good experience for them to consider joining the tech industry.

The Temasek Polytechnic students, who currently at the tail end of their internship programme, also invited their internship mentors and presented their internship experiences!

 

Hilmi currently interning at Block Tree Club shares his experience – “I got to do things that students in my Diploma course don’t usually do. I interacted with the technical and hands-on side of the business, and that helped broaden my perspectives. One thing that I caught from the mentors, was to not stop learning and look at what’s next. A project failure doesn’t mean the end of a business.”

 

My key takeaway after interning at InspireTech, is really the acronym K.E.Y: ‘Keep Educating Yourself’ – If you’re willing to learn, there is always somebody who is willing to teach you. Keep asking questions, and stay ready to receive guidance and feedback.” says Julia, Marketing Intern at InspireTech
