Young SEEDer Internship (YSI)
Commences in May 2022.
"The YSI programme was a great experience which gave me insights into the inner workings of a real software engineering team. The internship was well structured, and I was assigned a mentor who had regular meetings with me to check on my progress and provide timely feedback to any issues I was facing.
What really struck me was how much I felt like a valued team player. The DBS culture is an inclusive one and my colleagues really helped to facilitate my integration into the company. In DBS, there is a lot of emphasis on the importance of continuous learning and upskilling. There were sharing sessions conducted by senior developers, where they introduced the latest updates in technology and the skills that will be in demand in the future. This really ignited my passion for tech.
In the future, I would like to learn more about cybersecurity as I believe that it is one of the most essential aspects of building banking software. I would definitely want to join DBS after I graduate as the bank provides a nurturing and supportive environment, ideal for fresh graduates looking to kickstart their career." – Li HuiHui, final year NUS student, Computational Biology, incoming DBS SEED 2022 programme hire
"I joined the YSI programme because I felt that it was a great platform for me to gain valuable tech exposure and to learn more about the banking industry.
My internship experience with DBS was fruitful & fulfilling. I especially liked how I could work on ongoing projects alongside the current batch of SEEDers, and received guidance from my colleagues who were full-timers in the department. This helped me shake the self-limiting mindset that I was just an intern, as we were given lots of responsibility and opportunities to drive initiatives.
Some of my greatest takeaways were the soft skills I picked up, such as problem solving, communication and paying close attention to details. I am thankful to have worked with such a positive and supportive team." – Chester Ong, final year SMU student, Information Systems, incoming DBS SEED 2022 programme hire
