How has your Singtel SGUT experience been so far?

My Singtel SGUT experience has been rather unconventional because I’ve been working from home, but the passion and energy of everyone I’ve interacted with have kept me looking forward to meeting them in person when the situation permits. I had the chance to join HackOne2020, a hackathon conducted by Singtel as part of my onboarding. It was definitely a great opportunity to expose myself to real world problems and attend various workshops conducted by professionals to further equip myself.
