Overseas Internship done remotely from Singapore – The Story of 247.
School of Business Management
AI Chatbots, Events, Python Programming – these are just some of the exciting things that Aizam is exposed to during his virtual overseas internship programme with TwoFourSeven Group. This first-ever virtual overseas internship is part of the Global Entrepreneurial Internship Programme (GEIP) initiative, which aims to provide students with internship opportunities to experience life in vibrant startup ecosystems abroad.
Aizam was attached to the English Language Marketing department, where he helped to write articles, and marketed programmes based on data insights gathered to the expatriate community in China. Aizam not only had the chance to learn how startups work but also had the opportunity to experience different cultures as the TwoFourSeven team were also working remotely from all over the world, such as in UK and China. Aizam shared that “Having the opportunity to be a part of the virtual overseas internship was incredible as it forces one to be independent. Being independent means that you will need to craft unique solutions to overcome the challenges you may face. Your future employer will know that you’re reliable and creative - helping you be competitive. Despite working remotely, I have never felt alone – I’m thankful to have the support from my colleagues at 247 Shanghai, my lecturers, and my mentors in NYP, who are with me every step of the way.”
