After 2 years, I'm happy to say that being a CXO Apprentice has been the best decision I've ever made. Every project I was involved in during my apprenticeship has helped to set the stage for my current role in Product Development; be it learning team work, valuing ideas and opinions, executing and launching products with speed and agility. It's not every day a company gives young talent such responsibility and freedom to innovate every day, trust me.

I will always cherish my time as a CXO Apprentice. This apprenticeship gave me the freedom to design my own career path and the opportunity to learn from not only my CXO but many other mentors along the way, who have inspired and taught me valuable lessons that I still apply today. Three greatest lessons I learnt was to always leverage on your strengths, take ownership of what you do and always stay humble and curious. What's even better is I got to journey along with 7 other amazing colleagues who have now become my dearest friends!

The CXO Apprentice programme has been very empowering as it provided me freedom to involve myself in many different areas of the Marketing division. From creating new marketing initiatives and partnerships to improving internal processes, it is incredibly exciting to have a unique view of the numerous functions which make up the entire division. The digital, fast-paced and nurturing environment coupled with personal mentorship from the CMO has enabled me to grow quickly. The most memorable lesson this programme has taught me is that marketing to internal stakeholders is as important as marketing to our customers.

Being an apprentice in Finance has definitely challenged me beyond my comfort zone. I have worked on several projects from evaluating business cases from a financial standpoint, to assessing the organisations' process efficiency and recommending how to improve them. This required having to familiarise myself with non-Finance areas, such as IT and Network platforms. The apprenticeship has been a holistic learning opportunity beyond numbers, with my most important lesson being about speaking up and participating.

As a fresh graduate with little to no working experience, being an apprentice is a daily roller coaster ride. You are given high level insights into projects across the entire business and experiences many only see after 20+ years of work, which contributes heavily to one's personal and career growth. Throughout the year, I have been challenged to go far beyond my personal comforts and from this, I have had the privilege to work on projects ranging from nationwide branding initiatives, e-wallets, online platforms and many corporate social responsibility assignments!

I was trained to be a scientist so embarking into the telecommunications world is both challenging and fun. My mentor always reminds me not to be limited by my circumstances and fresh ideas are welcomed regardless of my level. Throughout my apprenticeship, I had the freedom to explore different areas of HR including employee engagement, health and safety as well as executing the marketing strategy for our next batch of CXO Apprentices! This programme is definitely one of a kind and I am glad that I took the leap of faith and stepped out of my comfort zone to sign-up!

My journey as an Apprentice to the Chief Marketing Officer was a truly unique experience. Having a mentor guide and show you the ropes of an organisation as large as Digi is really helpful and fulfilling. This provided me with a deeper understanding of how decisions are made at the top level. Today, I work on product development in Digital Services and my Apprenticeship has really helped shape the objectives and direction of marketing campaigns I work on now. This programme is one of a kind and opens up many windows of opportunities. So what are you waiting for? Apply now!

My experience as the CTO Apprentice has been life-changing. This programme has given me the liberty to explore my interests and empowered me to start initiatives that I truly believe in. I worked on transforming Digi's loyalty programme and also developed an improved process to prioritise network sites. That's not all, I also participated in an innovation challenge in Singapore where I showcased and pitched my ideas to a panel of industry leaders. I've grown so much in the few months I've been here and I can't wait for what's in store next.

The 365 days in the CXO Apprentice Programme has not only given me the opportunity to gain vast exposure on top management's perspectives but also enabled me to foster great relationships with inspiring people. As I moved on into a core business role, I am grateful that my Apprentice experience has allowed me to build relevance and contribute greater value to the company. So aim high and shoot for the moon! You will learn what it takes along the way and achieve your aspirations!

I would really describe the CXO Apprentice programme as the 'golden ticket' for young graduates to kick start their career. As someone who just stepped out of studies with zero experience in the industry, the programme is an excellent platform to learn, experience and put your skills to test. The most valuable experience you get is to see challenges that the company faces from the management's point of view and how they effectively solve each of them. It's also great to have the opportunity to work closely with them and ask for guidance or advice any time.

My CXO Apprentice experience has been nothing short of amazing! My favorite element in this programme is having the freedom to explore my interests, and freedom to own projects that are both interesting and impactful. Here, freedom comes with empowerment in the form of mentorship. Having the Chief Business Officer guide me through my projects with his experience, insight and opinions is an invaluable opportunity. I would highly recommend this programme to you if you are looking to learn fast, work lean and be endlessly pushed out of your comfort zone!
