Hello there! On the 18th November 2015, ADM had its annual internship briefing for all Year 3 students who are considering to take up the ADM internship between May – July 2016. Several speakers were invited to provide useful information on the importance of taking up a design internship.
Foreign Policy Design Group
Arthur Chin from Foreign Policy Design Group was specially invited to speak to ADM students on the benefits of taking on an internship for career building. Together with him, ADM alumni, Aurial Lee who graduated from Visual Communications 2 years ago also came by to share how her experiences of being an intern with Foreign Policy Design Group provided her the opportunity to grow as a designer. She is now a full time designer with the company and has recently been promoted.
Angela Yu Anqi, final year student from Product Design also shared her internship experience and tips on how to secure an internship position when she was a 3rd year student. Angela took the students through her journey – from drafting her CV from scratch to how she landed an internship with the Land Transport Authority (LTA). Her internship stint with LTA provided her the opportunity to work with design innovation firm IDEO on how to improve the public transport system in Singapore !
