It has always been my goal to work in the public finance sector. Being selected as one of the very few Finance Interns at the Mandatory Provident Fund Authority (MPFA) excited me a lot. During the internship I was exposed to a range of different assignments such as fund reporting, proofreading of audit reports and data tasks. I learned the importance of acquiring a substantial understanding of the organisation’s established practices and effective communication with colleagues are crucial to getting tasks done efficiently. For those who are keen on joining the public sector at large, my experience to share is that staying on top of current affairs would help a lot because public services in general impact on the mass public and relevant industries to a great extent.
