As an economics student specializing in public policy, my internship stint at RegCo was an eye-opener and it has helped me to sharpen my thinking, especially with regards to the inevitable trade-offs in the creation of new policies and review of policies. Through the new-joiner's briefing sessions, priojects that I assisted in and my colleagues' guidance, I had the privilege to learn more about the finance sector and the exchange business. These are things that I never had a chance to be exposed to. "

Charis Soon, Intern with RegCo - Regulatory Development & Policy
Undergraduate at the National University of Singapore
 
 
SGX provides a conducive and vibrant environment for its employees to learn and work. I was given ample opportunities to learn from my colleagues and I was able to see my ideas put into place. This internship has equipped me with soft skills such as communication and problem-solving skills. I was also able to gain a deeper understanding of how the Finance unit operates as a whole. Overall, the internship with the Risk and Control team has been fulfilling and useful in preparing me for work in the future. "

Tan Jie Ying, Intern with CFO Unit - Risk and Controls
Undergraduate at Singapore University of Social Sciences
 
 
My internship with SGX has been fulfilling. I was given the opportunity to be exposed to the multi-faceted roles of marketing in a corporate setting. Everyone in the marketing team has provided great guidance and advice throughout my three months. I have been exposed to new skills such as coding in HTML and Markdown format for the Brand and Design portal and the maximizing the entire Adobe Creative Suite. "

Ong Hui Ting, Intern with Marketing & Communications
Undergraduate at Singapore Management University
 
 
Coming from a non-finance background, my biggest challenge was learning how to analyse Market Data as well as learning KDB+ and Q Programming. Fortunately, my manager and colleagues were very open to share their knowledge, despite their busy schedules. I was also given the opportunity to present to one of the EMCO members which helped me to hone my presentation skills. "

Pavithra Coimbatore Sainath, Intern with Technology - Data & Analytics
Postgraduate at Singapore Management University
 
 
This internship has provided me many insights on Securities Trading and I also had the opportunity to witness various corporate setting situations as well as the thought processes of the higher management in decision-making which involves various stakeholders. Through the daily tasks given, I learnt to think on my feet in responding quickly to both internal and external parties. I am grateful for being able to witness the demands of working in Singapore's burgeoning financial industry right here at SGX. "

Jotham Yeo, Intern with Operations & Market Services - Securities & Market Data
Undergraduate at Nanyang Technological University
 
 
My biggest takeaway for my internship with the Business Management team was the opportunity to interact and socialize with colleagues from different teams. The internship here is not just about work in the office. I was very fortunate to be able to participate in the unit's overseas offsite and department gatherings. I now find it a joy to meet new people as I get to learn new things from different perspective. "
