Unlike the WA, Internships are not a graduation requirement. Internships are full-time or part-time or temporary work you do to gather work experience, acquire work-related skills, earn pocket money, and build your contacts.
Many employers these days consider not only your educational qualifications, but also your professional, i.e. work, background during hiring. Therefore, you should have the appropriate educational background as well as relevant work experience. You are strongly encouraged to do internships to strengthen your professional profile.
Local SUSS students on Internships and Work Attachment are exempted from making CPF contributions and SDL.
Internships done locally (local internships) are managed entirely on your own. While CareerDev may advise on the resume and cover letter, you will source for the internships yourself and start working whenever you can.
Students who have decided to work with Social Service Organisations/ Social Enterprise and want to fulfill CE requirement at the same time may submit his/her CE Proposal (downloaded from Canvas) to Office of Service-Learning and Community Engagement.
