Internships 201: Pre-Departure Orientation
Headed to an internship this summer? Transitioning from the classroom to the workplace isn’t intuitive, and CIPE Career Services will help you prepare for your upcoming internship. Centered around actual case scenarios you may face in the workplace, this session will allow you to practice decision-making in sticky situations and pick up pointers for communication and etiquette to make the most of your upcoming internship.

Modeled after the success of Internships 101, we will reserve plenty of time for your questions and concerns. All students pursuing an internship locally or overseas are expected to attend, unless you are studying abroad this semester. Students interning overseas are also expected to attend the CIPE-wide Pre-Departure Orientation on the morning of 24 April. Please RSVP on Symplicity.

If you are unable to attend either of the two events, please contact your respective Career Services staff:
– Paul.Wilt@yale-nus.edu.sg
– Nayoung.Won@yale-nus.edu.sg
– Joanna.Tan@yale-nus.edu.sg
