Of VIP

I’ve just applied for VIP (Vacation internship program) under the NUS VIP placement system. It was quite a long list of companies to choose from and was quite spoilt for choice. But when I considered my area of interest, then it became pretty obvious to me which ones I will be going for. Micron and SSMC are my top 2 choice, both in the semiconductor industry and quite prominent in that field. I am not sure how the placement system works, but most likely its going to be merit based, i.e. CAP, which means I might not be able to get what I want. But if they were to look at our interest/intended specialize field, then hopefully I will stand a better chance, judging from my fervent display of interest in their industry in my CV, well at least the grades in the relevant modules are presentable.

Quantum automation is my 3rd and this one was chosen based on location, kaki bukit which is like a 10-15 mins bus ride from home. I know nothing about the company, however a quick search in the net revealed that it deals with integrated technology in automated system.

The last one is Addest Technovation, dealing with R&D, and it aims to expose students to design and development work. This one is located in ayer rajah though.



Now now, which of these will take poor currytan in? = (

seems like the VIP fever is setting in, and like SEP, I think its all CAP based, as always in our meritrocratic society =]

Currytan: Levi only got ONE position, and it's a programming position... Not everyone would like it / can get it...

blueodyssey said...

It doesnt matter if i got company...

Its a sooner or later thing ...

All engine students here have to do IA... maybe some ppl say its a privilege given. Selection should be starting soon ...

Currytan said...

@Naka:
Huh? Its programming meh? Oops, my bad then..

@blueodyssey:
Yea, it can be privilege or it could be a curse, depending on individual. Good luck for your selection too.
