Well-known for its excellence in service and reliability, Changi Airport has earned its acclaim from air travellers around the world. CAG Overseas Undergraduate Scholar, Neo Kai Ling, tells us more about her remarkable experience as part of Changi Airport Group (CAG).

THE COMPANY TO BEAT

To date, Changi Airport has received over 550 accolades. It is this sterling reputation that drew Kai Ling to CAG. “I wanted to be part of a company that allows me to grow. I knew that I would have a diverse range of job functions that will allow me to build experience and knowledge in various business areas at CAG. I have also heard from seniors about the family-like culture in CAG, and that strongly appeals to me. Most importantly, CAG’s people-centred aim to create meaningful and delightful experiences for their passengers strongly resonates with me,” she shares.

THE PREFERRED SCHOLARSHIP

Amongst ‘A’ Level and IB graduates, the CAG Scholarship has consistently ranked as the number one bonded scholarship of choice from 2014 to 2017. In Kai Ling’s opinion, it is CAG’s sincerity that makes it stand out from other scholarship providers. She tells us, “They truly care about the well-being and development of their scholars, and they are supportive of us attending programmes that will develop us holistically.”

Elaborating on her line of thought, Kai Ling tells us about the two internships she has done with CAG. “Interns are attached to a buddy. This buddy helps integrate the intern into the team and make them feel welcomed and included. Interns also work on projects alongside the team, providing plenty of opportunities for them to learn the ropes. Through the internship, I have forged close ties with my future colleagues, and also gained a better understanding of the business. In addition, I was given the opportunity to challenge myself and work on projects. I felt that CAG’s internship programme is well-planned and fruitful. Not only does it give you a flavour of how work is like in CAG, it also challenges and inspires you to contribute meaningfully.”

WORDS OF WISDOM

When asked if she had any advice for aspiring CAG scholars, Kai Ling says, “A CAG scholar should be adaptable. Given the dynamic nature of work in CAG, it is essential that one is able to learn quickly and transform these insights into action. Lastly, for one to be a good fit to CAG, one has to be a good team player - given the family-like work culture at CAG.”
