11-28-12 to 12-02-12 Singapore Trek

The purpose of the Singapore Trek was to establish networks with company HR, management and HKUST alumni while trying to look for internship and full time opportunities. Students choose which companies they want to visit. Here are a few that were set up: Apple, Samsung (advertising agency branch), Brightoil, DBS bank, Citi Private Banking, Bain Consulting, SAP, Gallup Consulting, Bloomberg, Mapletree, ANZ bank, GE healthcare, Leo Burnette, Dow Chemical. For the most part, I went to see if it was somewhere I would even want to work at. The weather is a bit humid (all year long) and the vibe is much more different than HK, slightly artificial and trying hard to be something it isn’t with it’s mixture feel of a little bit of LA, Vegas, Chicago, and London all in one. The food was amazing though, especially the hawker stall street food and red chili crab with bread that you soak sauce with!

At the top of the Marina Bay Sands, the one casino in Singapore that made more revenue than all of Las Vegas at one point.
