What can a fresh graduate like me expect during my first year of work at UOB?

A: From day one, my buddy and I were involved in on-going projects and active discussions with management. We also had the privilege of participating in a regional transformation project that was privy to a selected few in the division. The opportunity to present my ideas to CEO and Head of Divisions, as well as hear their feedback and perspectives was a very meaningful experience for me! That aside, being surrounded by people who are not just smart and talented but equally passionate, eventually convinced me that UOB would be the perfect place to kick-start my career.
