Internships

Internships are great experiential learning opportunities for you to explore your professional and academic interests.

While students are encouraged to search for opportunities on their own, CIPE also coordinates internships with employers who are seeking student interns for 8 or more weeks over the summer vacation period (May – July).

All applicants are required to attend a Writing Killer Resumes & Cover Letters workshop or Rapid Resume Reviews before applying, and will need to do a mock interview through Symplicity.

Please refer to the Symplicity Student Guide for help with login and registration process. Students having trouble with Symplicity should contact amanda.lim@yale-nus.edu.sg.
