No, I don't expect any specific answer, I'm just asking to find out whats their point of view. The problem is I don't even know what to ask. I believe there are many ppl like me, just following the Singapore stereotype education path: Get a degree first then talk. At the same time, they don't know what they want to be.

Ok, I understand now. Most ppl at your age won't know what they really want. It's perfectly normal. Make the best use of your internships and grow your network. Learn from one another experience and decide which path that you really enjoy and what you really want in life.

Internships at the civil service hardly offer the real deal. Typically they assigned you a research project and all the interns ended up doing is hide in their office to do research online. You don't really get to know what they do on a daily basis...

Technically yes. However the main issue is whether there will be any conflict of interest.

I believe your question would be better answered on another thread called "All things about DXO" or something like that. Defence sector has their own systems. Having said that, seem that the defence ppl have been very quiet recently. I suspect they might have received an internal circulations that restrict them from speaking freely online.

Yes, if interns do their works, who need full time officers?
You'll still get a chance to network with them around and find out more e.g. pantry small talk, lunch out etc
