– Remote Business Development internship with a company based in Singapore
“My biggest takeaway from this experience was more confidence in my career direction and more cultural awareness gained interacting and working with people from another country. I also gained more digital literacy by using virtual collaborative tools and platforms. As a business graduate working in an organization in a different field (health) was really interesting. I learned so much about the field and gained new skills.”
Biggest skill gain?
“As a business development intern, I focused on research and analysis in most projects, such as market segmentation and product development. Working in this field for 8 weeks has definitely improved my research and analysis skills.”
Any advice for future interns?
