Step 2: Preparation prior to submitting on-line application

  1. Please familiarize yourself with the SIP by reading the Summer Internship Programme – Guide for Students
  2. As you can apply for as many internship positions available as you wish, you are strongly advised to take due consideration of the time/energy that could be afforded for preparing yourself for various selection assessments before deciding whether to submit applications for all the internship positions available in SIP 2019. Please visit https://www.wamtalent.org.hk/eng/internship_programme/internship_positions.html for details of the internship position(s).

    If you have already completed summer internships as student interns of either SIP 2017 or SIP 2018, provided that you have fulfilled the eligibility conditions, are also welcome to apply for any internship positions of SIP 2019. Though the condition of different job categories is no longer applicable in SIP 2019, it would be beneficial for you to consider internship positions which are different from your previous placements in terms of job categories and/or PEs.
