If you do well and enjoy GIC, you could have a job ready and waiting for you when you graduate.

What prompted you to apply for an internship at GIC?
When friends and family who are working in finance heard I was looking for an internship, they strongly recommended me to apply for an internship and job with GIC. They all cited GIC’s reputation for solid training, wide exposure and innovative culture as reasons I should consider.
What aspects of the internship did you enjoy most?
The high level of access to senior management and top level executives from our investee companies was unbelievable for someone still in school! In addition, the hands-on work and training were way beyond expectations. Even as an intern, I truly experienced GIC’s commitment in training and exposing their staff!
What were some of the key takeaways from the internship?
The internship only served to confirm what I had heard about GIC and more. But more importantly, the experience allowed me to see myself working for GIC after graduation.
What were some of the considerations before taking up the offer to join us after graduation?
Armed with the knowledge that I would continue to experience that type of access, exposure and training for both my professional and personal development, I knew this was the place for me – and the internship was a perfect avenue to confirm this for myself.
Tell us about your colleagues – what's it like to work with them?
My colleagues are one word – wonderful! Not only are they extremely capable and down–to–earth, they spare no effort in caring for the younger ones and ensuring continued learning and exposure.
What's GIC's culture like?
GIC's culture is one that is steeped in mentorship and a focus on learning. People are passionate about what they do, collaborative, and put on no airs. The teams are also very flat organizationally with little hierarchy. The views of a junior team member are regarded equally as one of a senior member – just the perfect environment to foster learning.
What do you love about working for GIC?
I love the ability to make an impact, knowing that doing well helps make a real difference in contributing towards the nation of Singapore. And the mandate to be excellent rings loud and clear given the level of responsibility entrusted to us. I see this as a very meaningful and fulfilling challenge.
