Candidates who are keen, available and eligible for these types of roles, can opt in on their profile.
Employers targeting these types of candidates can subscribe to the programme and list role(s) on the website.
Students… opting out:
If your availability/appetite/eligibility status changes, make sure you opt out! We understand that life happens, you may find a job through another channel, or your plans for summer might change. That’s ok, but we ask you to change your availability so that your profile’s not showing as published if you’re not actually available.
Note that when you opt out of a programme, you’re saying you’re no longer available. That means that your saved roles in that programme will be deleted, and your profile will be removed from any company shortlists.
For Summer Internship Programmes, we ask that if you attend Meet & Greet, you remain available for internship roles until Offers Day. That means we freeze withdrawals from SoT, SoB & Tupu Tek between 13 September and 4 October.
