Tips for success as a trainee

Hear it from a trainee! Nur Safia Najwa, Finance Analyst, shares her experience:

“I joined DKSH as a Junior Executive Trainee in The Finance Department in early 2019 solely to learn corporate finance. However, I was pleasantly surprised that a lot of opportunities and exposure was given even though I was just a trainee. I have met great colleagues across departments and developed vast knowledge, be it in business and operation. Now, after a fruitful year as a trainee I am proud to be the Finance Analyst in The Healthcare Business Unit.”
