anyone has any advice or experience doing an internship after graduating? I have a summer internship offer at a top tier, which is after I graduate and it has the potential to convert to full time a year after. Is it worth taking up the internship or should I just focus on a full time job

i would give it a shot if it's a desirable role with a potential of conversion.

usually you should be converted as your colleagues get familiar and comfortable with you. plus they spent months teaching you stuff.

as a grad from SMU, i really enjoy the fact that NTU does not prepare their graduates well for the workforce in terms of helping them realize what kind of career they want.

this allows us SMU grads to win the competition in terms of knowing where and when to apply for prestigious management associate programmes.

As a someone who has been in the recruitment industry for so long, the truth is that NUS / NTU still takes up most of the pie in terms of the "prestigious management associate programmes" you speak of.

Though admittedly, SMU students do go on to do more entrepreneurial things like startups, venture capital firms, boutiques

Examples are FMCG companies like P&G and J&J. They interview top NUS and NTU grads by the boatload. Typical for their starting salaries to be $4.5 - $5k.

There is no "right answer" to your question. Be willing to apply to all jobs that interests you, work hard at resume prep, interview prep, be strong when rejected (it's no big deal). It's really not you choosing the career path, rather the career path chooses you based on the offers you get. So apply widely, work hard and let fate decide the rest.
