The Programme offers two tracks: General Track and Technical Track.
Our General Track Graduate
To become a highly effective individual with the skills necessary to leave an imprint in the real estate industry. I had opportunities to attend internal courses which honed my personal effectiveness and communication skills at building meaningful relationships. In addition, I gained useful exposure via corporate events and on-the-job learning at various rotations across diverse business units within the organisation.
Rotations to different business units which enabled me to define the difference between the operations of a new business like StorHub and established players like The Ascott Limited. Travelling to China has also honed my social skills in interacting with colleagues across nationality and culture. The rotation opportunities have opened doors for me to learn and interact with people of various experiences and skill sets, an exposure that is essential to the growth of a fresh graduate.
Our Technical Track Graduates
Because CapitaLand’s credo of Building People meant continuous development and career progression within a dynamic business environment. There exists a strong culture of support and development and I have benefitted greatly from my direct supervisor who has not only guided me, but also welcomed my ideas and contributions. In addition, the opportunities offered in the programme are varied and the job rotations allow one to realise his or her strengths and interests.
A steep learning curve and the expectations to perform under pressure. CapitaLand, a world class developer, has given me ample opportunities to learn from overseas colleagues, study trips and business associates. My assignment with the Projects Design Development & Management department at CapitaMalls Asia helped me see its significance in real estate and the expertise of our colleagues in transforming blueprint into reality. The technical track of the GDP was a good blend of sharpening our hard and soft skills. Some of the things I learnt include communicating effectively with consultants, acquiring good time and cost management skills and understanding technical terms.
To experience the full spectrum of real estate development and expand my passion for art forms and architecture which I majored in university. CapitaLand is a company that is able to provide a holistic experience and global exposure. My job here builds on my architecture degree, where I review architectural and interior designs, prepare guidelines for design best practices, and implement green building products. I assisted in the design management of projects in cities such as Bangalore, Beijing, Bangkok and Berlin when I was with The Ascott Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CapitaLand. I also helped to project manage CapitaGreen, a Grade A office building under CapitaCommercial Trust Management Limited, one of Singapore’s leading office landlords and managers.
Plenty of opportunities for growth, classroom learning, site visits and even talks by industry professionals. I was enriched by the many overseas experiences. One of which involved an informal “survey” of the hotel industry in Chennai. It was a chance to understand first-hand our competition in the hospitality industry in India. More importantly, many experienced colleagues here have invested their time to show me the ropes and entrust me with projects to manage. As a fresh graduate, these are valuable lessons and I realise there are so many things I have yet to learn from the “University of Society”!
