I chose the SEED programme because it was a good way to get started with a career in software development. Despite being a Psychology major, I picked up good coding practices through the programme. I also had opportunities to learn new technologies that I was interested in. I like the work culture here and the technologies used are current which is not common for banks.
I have recommended so many of my friends to join the programme that many of my close friends are now working in DBS! I think if you truly enjoy software development and working with technology you have nothing to worry about. Just sit back, relax and code with a good posture.
I wanted to pursue a career in technology but had little to no experience in software development in my university major. I knew I had to look for a programme that would be willing to give me guidance and time to learn the ropes. That was what I saw in the SEED programme. Throughout my time in the programme, I did several rotations and worked in various projects. The commonality is the need to learn quickly and independently to find answers and ask the right questions.
Bringing a passion to learn and solve problems was more important than having experience in software development and technology. The programme helped me fill that knowledge gap by giving me a good overview of the technological landscape in banking. It also gave me a better view of what we are striving towards to take DBS one step further.
