    Hello Jie,

    It’s great that you asked this! We are soon going to launch a short term summer program for those interested in retail sales positions. I’m going to send you some more information about this program, and I hope to hear back from you soon!

  7. SSA Global says:

    Hello Chin,

    Thank you for your comment! Most of our internships last for a full six months. Although we do offer shorter internships in retail, they usually last from 1-2 months and the application process takes some time. Because of this, we are not currently looking for interns for shorter length internships. If, come next year, you are interested in interning in Singapore (for a short- or long-term), please feel free to submit your resume to apply@ssa-us.com in March or April! Thank you again for your interest in our program, and I hope you apply next year.
