Hear from our Past Interns

The internship with DOS was enriching. My internship project had given me an opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge learned in school to real life applications. This was my first attachment and some key takeaways from the internship was developing critical thinking skills and being humble. Never be afraid to ask questions when in doubt, you are gaining the most when you voice out your doubts!

As a Statistics student, I wanted to find out how my undergraduate studies could be applied to the real world. Through this internship with DOS, I was given a chance to learn from seniors who were working on socio-demographic statistics. It was exciting to see how numbers were translated to insights regarding our population. The environment was also very supportive and inspiring. These led me to eventually join DOS full time after my graduation.

During my internship, my supervisors provided a structured and nurturing work environment for me to learn as much as possible. They encouraged me to step out beyond my comfort zone and pushed me to achieve greater things. I was also provided with the opportunity to present my statistical projects and findings to the management. Through this process, I was able to witness how meaningful the work of a statistician is. These are valuable experiences that one can never learn from textbooks.
