FOC Tan Wan Ling NTUC Income Feature Image

 

In our Faces of Co-operators series, we speak to young co-operators who share their passion for promoting the well-being of the communities where we live and work.

Tan Wan Ling, 27, who took up an unconventional career path as compared to her peers after graduating from the Singapore Management University with a major in Marketing three years ago. According to survey done by Glints in 2018, fresh graduates in Singapore place great importance on work-life balance. This definitely does not apply to Wan Ling, who has chosen the challenging path of Financial Consultant, a job that requires almost 24/7. She never regrets her decision. Wan Ling is the youngest Vice President in the NTUC Income Summit Club of NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative Ltd (INCOME). Members of the NTUC Income Summit Club represent the top 15% of the sales representatives of INCOME.

Adrian Internship Experience Feature image

 The learning points and experiences you gain during an internship cannot be overemphasised. It broadens your understanding of the working world, helps you pick up new skills along the way and instils a sense of responsibility in you. I firmly believe that getting good grades in school is just the first step in your journey to self-realisation. You will learn many new things about yourself, as well as to challenge and push yourself. An internship is a perfect opportunity to bring out the best of you.

Saffiahtol FOC Feature Image edited compressor 1080x600

 

Hi everyone, I am Saffiahtol Binti Osman.

I started out as a Care Associate in NTUC Health in 2015 after graduating from ITE. Many feel that providing home care for seniors is a tough job. Working with the elderly is my passion. As a Care Associate, I have to do three home visits a day. It is very different from working in a hospital environment where there are several nurses and aides to assist and support, A large part of my job is assisting my clients with their daily activities, such as bathing and feeding, which requires a high level of sensitivity, respect and trust. Home care involves one-on-one interaction with a client which builds rapport and develops relationships.
