I didn’t really get to do what I was recruited for nor what I wanted to do. But it was okay (in a way expected) and that I actually got to do many other stuff and explore different types of work.
I was hired to be an experience designer and marketing intern. I did minimal marketing stuff, and did plenty strategy stuff in relative.
We even managed to see the process of handling postal items. The whole flow of what happens when you mail is received by Singpost. It was weird though, as we only managed to go on this educational tour second last day of our internship. But now I see the process I understand why the mails are always ‘late’. Especially for parcel and even worst for registered mail. FYI, don’t mail fragile items without protecting them well. Also Postal Code is very very very important, like uber important!
If Singpost were to reopen/restart the educational tour visits for the operations to public again, I strongly suggest to go for it. As it will provide a good insight of the postal service. and do you know that they work from 2 pm - 6 am just to get our mails mailed (of course in shifts). It was a real amazing experience.
