TikTok launches youth mentorship programme to nurture talents from tertiary institutes in Singapore

12 Dec 2023

For Aaron Neo, when his career path diverged from the traditional banking route to his current role as the head of data science (monetisation integrity) at TikTok APAC, having mentors along the way made a world of difference. "Initially, I began in banking because, 10 years ago, it was the 'in' thing," he recalled during a fireside chat at TikTok’s office during the launch of the TikTok x Halogen Foundation Mentorship Programme on 29 November. Neo’s involvement in the TikTok x Halogen Foundation Mentorship Programme, which will be commencing in January 2024, aligns with the Mentoring SG movement. This programme aims to bridge the gap between academic learning and practical application, nurturing students’ talents from ITEs and local polytechnics. Neo is among a cohort of 100 TikTok staff actively engaged in the mentorship initiative, which also involves 100 students from tertiary institutes such as NP and SP.
