Eunice Goh | Unilever Leadership Internship Programme (ULIP), Batch of 2019
Attending One Amazing Week helped me discover the different programmes I could apply to and gain a deeper understanding of Unilever's culture. I remember speaking to one of the Unilever Future Leaders Programme (UFLP) participants and experiencing firsthand their warmth towards people and their drive for the company. That interaction convinced me to apply for Unilever’s internship programme and I have not looked back since!
One Amazing Week was a memorable event for me as I got to talk to one of SMU’s alumni and the passion and expertise she has for what she does is impeccable. Everyone was very helpful and passionate in helping me understand the underlying purpose behind all that Unilever is doing. From this event, a greater resonance for the brand grew and I could finally understand why it is a popular employer of choice to many.
My friends and I went to One Amazing Week with the thought of leaving as soon as we collected our free ice cream, but we ended up getting so much more out of it. Through this event, we got to know more about the company culture and its hiring process. We also had the opportunity to interact with the senior staff and ambassadors from the sales and marketing department, which provided a firsthand look of what it's like to work at Unilever. It was such a memorable experience as it truly gave us a glimpse of what to expect of a career with a leading consumer goods company.
