It’s almost time for internship period and if you listen carefully, you could probably hear the clacking sounds of the keyboard as students update and spruce up their resumes. But what good is the most amazing resume if there is no recipient to read and be wowed by it?

We decided to sift through the internship opportunities available in Singapore, so here are 10 of our top choices compiled.

1. Google Singapore

The dream employer for many millennials, Google is known for its vibrant office culture.

With a shining future in e-commerce, it is clear that Singapore startup ShopBack is set on an upward growth trend. We recently shared about how the startup had moved into a brand new office in Blk77, and if Vulcan Post wasn’t such a cool place to be, I know who I’d be throwing my resume at right now.

The ShopBack team culture is fun-loving and values learning from one another, and if you’re an office snacker (you know who you are), their open pantry will definitely impress.
