Industry Networking Sessions
These sessions are avenues for you to establish direct contacts with employers to learn more about industry-specific practices, trends, various job functions, and job and internship opportunities available.
Recruitment talks are great for meeting company representatives to establish direct contacts, clarify about the organizations and their culture, the positions available and their hiring criteria.

“I interned at the NUS Museum as part of the Outreach team, and got my internship through the NUS Career Centre website. My main duties are to encourage students to visit the museum and to show them that what they learn in their modules complement the exhibits at the museum.” - Ng Bi Ru, Economics Major
