NUS Resilience and Growth Initiative
Our graduating class will face challenges securing full-time employment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The traineeships will help fresh graduates acquire relevant work experience, develop professionally, and boost their employability, post-COVID-19.
Aside from exciting work opportunities, trainees will have a personalised development plan, created in consultation with an experienced mentor. Trainees will also be given up to 4 days a month to enrol in a wide range of CET courses offered by NUS, for free. The courses include data analytics, AI and machine learning, and business and management.
