Cynthia LAM – HSBC

“I have joined the Student Co-op Student Trainee Program in HSBC for 6 months.
Being in this team, has offered me with a great opportunity to get to know more about the bank’s internal regulations and standards when they are analyzing a customer profile.
This internship experience has further straightened my communication, data analysis, interpersonal and presentation skills.
HSBC does appreciate work life balance, which it has senior management teams to hold town hall from time to time and spread the message that employees are not encouraged to working overtime and to send work emails after office hours.
I strongly believe that this internship opportunity would be a valuable one for students who would like to get a taste of the banking industry.”

Giovanni TIONARDY – UOB Indonesia

“The Learn Earn and Progress (LEAP) program was an eight weeks internship that was designed for penultimate students who were seeking a career in the banking industry.
Over the last two months, I worked as a System Parameter intern under the Operations department.
On the second month of the internship, I was then delegated a project by the Head of Operations regarding the amendments and compilations of operational policies under the operations department.
Throughout the internship period, a total of two in-class trainings and networking sessions were offered by the LEAP program.
One of the aspects that had helped me in securing this internship should be credited to GLEF.
Another factor that had contributed to my internship placement was my exchange experience at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
In short, I think that GLEF had done an excellent job in offering me the classes that were needed in the banking industry.”
