If you are reading this, you are probably looking for internships from many other places too, and if you only have time to read one line, here it is: MOF is a great place for internship!
The Work: Being the pioneering intern at a brand new unit (Strategic Foresight) is challenging as much as it is rewarding. Throughout the internship, I had the opportunity to attend discussions, seminars, and network with foresight practitioners within and outside the government. The work in Strategic Foresight is interesting as it encourages one to think creatively, read diligently, analyse current affairs and communicate ideas concisely and convincingly. There was autonomy to conduct research and I personally found the project meaningful and significant.
The People: The colleagues within MOF are warm, giving me more welcome treats than a new-comer would normally get. I have made many new friends in the 10-week stint, many of whom are fellow interns and we would go for lunch together. What I found most assuring was the support given by my supervisors, who are always approachable and earnest in offering guidance. Looking back, I am glad to have applied for an internship at MOF. It was an enriching and fun experience, and I'm sure it would be the same for you.

Intern (Corporate Income Tax) May – July 2010
My internship experience was a very enriching one. I definitely learnt a lot in my short stay in MOF. Through the course of my internship project, I learnt about the process of policy formulation and some of the considerations that go into policy making. My project also exposed me to the different ways that countries approach tax policy.
Attending tax policy department meetings was a valuable part of my internship experience. The meetings were very interesting and enabled me to further understand the work that MOF is doing. The meetings also opened my eyes to the challenges that public servants face (e.g. the need to balance the different trade-offs, thinking of other behavioural consequences).
I would like to thank MOF for giving me this wonderful opportunity to experience life in the public service, and would recommend this internship to all students out there.
