Qi Ying, sharing on her internship experience
Qi Yin, an intern at Kelly Services spoke of her invaluable and enriching experience: “I have really gained a lot of knowledge during this internship, especially in the recruitment industry. One of the best learning experiences from this programme is that my communication skills have definitely improved. I was able to communicate more professionally over the phone, and via email. It also helps to prepare me when I enter the workforce in the future.”
