Department of Real Estate School of Design & Environment SHAPING YOUR FUTURE “I Iike the open concept office that allows us to communicate with each other more effectively at work and I feel that it is quite productive. Moreover, as the HVS Singapore office is small, being an intern here I was given legit tasks to work on and involved in actual assignments, and I felt trusted at my work.” - Zhong Xiaomei (HVS) FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS REIP PARTICIPANTS Lin Xintao, Cushman & Wakefield Zhong Xiaomei, HVS “The internship exposes me to the Project Management side and broadened my knowledge on top of what was taught in Real Estate.

The most valuable soft skill that I gained from the internship was leadership – being more proactive and taking charge of tasks that were assigned to me.” - Yap Mei Xuan (Ascendas-Singbridge) “Being outside of a classroom setting, allowed me to get first hand experience on how leasing works and the procedures involved which is not taught or explored a lot in school modules. I learnt self-conduct is very important as you will be meeting many clients and the quality of work submitted must also be elevated to a higher standard.” - Gina Tan (CapitaLand Retail)
