I got to know about YIEE some months ago and I really appreciate what this initiative is trying to achieve. I have gained some useful job tips in some of the events organized by YIEE. I learnt a few things about the importance of Internships and having both soft skills and hard skills. YIEE has really tried to give youths like me the opportunity to have a peep into the labour industry and get some insights on how to position myself for success in the industry.
