Every year, nearly two hundred CNM students go out to complete their internships at companies such as NBC Universal, Mediacorp, Weber Shandwick and various others. Our students have done very well and here are some of the testimonials that we have received from the employers, as well as experiences shared by our internship students!

“Yui Seeng is very observant and is able to remember in detail situations she has observed. She is able to remind the team to take a step back and consider from a different perspective, how we are performing as individuals and team players. As her supervisor, I am proud of her growth, from the first day she was here up till today.”

Jonathan Tiong, Bachelor of Arts (Communications and New Media)
Intern at GIC Private Limited

 

“To me was my biggest takeaway from this internship: confidence. In the context of work-related tasks, this refers to the ability to say "Yes, I can" and mean it. I can write articles that people enjoy reading. I can analyse a piece of text, catch mistakes, and make it better. As a disabled person, realising that there are things I can do well is an empowering feeling. It sounds cliched but it's true.”

 

Koh Kai Ling, Bachelor of Arts (Communications and New Media)
Video Production Intern at The Kettle Gourmet

 

“This internship has allowed me to grow in ways I had never thought of before. Apart from creating videos, I was also exposed to copywriting and poster designing works, and I am really grateful for these experiences. This internship experience has not only allowed me to gain some technical skills, but also helped me grow as an adult, becoming more independent, self-disciplined and open-minded.”

 

Neo Weiling, Bachelor of Arts (Communications and New Media)
Intern at Red Shoe Communications

 

“This internship journey made me appreciate the simplicity of being a student, when the timetable was more flexible and there was more freedom to partake in different activities. It also puts into perspective the stress placed on getting straight As or maintaining a certain GPA. Although it is important to demonstrate our capabilities through our results, it is but a small part of our learning journey, and there are other soft skills, values and experiences that are more significant in defining us as a person. Overall, my time during this internship has allowed for deep self-reflection and personal growth, which I greatly appreciate.”

 

Su Ra Hye, Bachelor of Arts (Communications and New Media)

Intern at Red Shoe Communications

 

“Working in Red Shoe has definitely allowed me to learn many values and soft skills that are important in life ­– not just in the workplace, but in my daily interaction with people around me.

I see this internship as an important asset to CNM students like me. This is because CNM students need to find a place to test out the frameworks and skills we have learnt during lectures and the working world is a good place to do so. I strongly recommend this internship programme to the future batch of CNM students.”
