- Back then, what was your motivation for interning in a startup and why was Savour! your choice of internship?
Personally I think startups give exposure to more areas and in my case, I have tried some business development, marketing, finance as well as event planning during my internship. As for Savour, I think there’s potential in the B2B procurement platform. Meanwhile, founded by university students, the team members in Savour! are very friendly and supportive.
- What was your expectation out of this internship? What were your key takeaways from this internship?
I would say partner operation initially as suggested by the title of the position. However, I told the team during the interview that I hope to gain some finance knowledge if it’s possible. I really appreciate the fact that they take into consideration my interest and plan my work accordingly.
Friendship definitely on top of all the work exposure. I became friends with the Savour! team and we go out for lunch and dinner sometimes.If you are looking for a friendly working environment and have something in mind that you want to try, do not hesitate to be part of Savour! where you can work with a group of passionate people.
- What are your plans in Savour! moving forward? Any advice you will give to interested applicants?
Moving forward, I do hope to help Savour! become better and better and bring in my ideas and thoughts into implementation.
