Tan Wei Cong (2nd last row, extreme right)


I was fortunate to have the opportunity to intern at Finema as a Marketing Trainee, where I manage and grow the company’s social media accounts by creating engaging and interesting contents about our products.

As the school was very proactive in ensuring my safety whilst in Bangkok, I felt very assured to be interning overseas. I could readily reach out to SUSS Thailand Country Manager and the staff in SUSS Career Development Office, anytime. Whilst overseas, I updated my parents regularly about my whereabouts and shared with them the safe working environment.

This opportunity definitely broadened my horizons, in terms of culture and mindset. As I was in a foreign country alone for an extended period of time, I became very independent and self-reliant. I was also able to develop my communication skills as I had to work with a culturally different team which converse in the Thai language. To communicate effective, I observed body language and listened more attentively.

I would definitely recommend my peers to take the opportunities provided by SUSS to perform internships overseas as well. Living in Bangkok for 3 months has definitely been one of my best experiences in life, where I was able to grow personally and professionally. It brings me so much thrill to be able to live like a local and to experience a country’s culture.
