GIP Application & Selection Process
The GIP application process is an evaluation in three rounds consisting of a short listing process and two rounds of interview. All applicants are therefore requested to provide the complete required information and documents before the interview process.

First Interview
Applicants who meet the programme’s eligibility requirements and objectives will be invited to Round 1 of interviews with the GIP administrators at the GIA office.

The objective of the interview is to further discuss the applicant’s career aspirations, assess the applicant’s communication skills and better understand the applicant’s professional goals and interested. The key objective is to help achieve the right internship placement fit.

Final Interview
Upon successful matching, shortlisted applicants are then interviewed by their prospective host companies. At the interview, applicants meet their potential host company mentors and/or HR representatives. Applicants also get the opportunity to learn more about their roles and internship job scope. After this final round of interview, applicants who are confirmed will be notified by their host companies.
