My career goal is to work in a large corporate that I can be exposed to the different scope of businesses and roles.

How’s your first 3 months as a Towngas GT?

I particularly appreciate the one-month management orientation training. Not only am I introduced to the corporate’s businesses, I have been provided with training to enhance my business networking skills through different workshops. As I am a business major without any engineering background, the orientation has also helped me to pick up a lot of the technical learning in a short period of time. I am really excited about the steep learning curve I have experienced in Towngas!
