Chantale is an Assistant Vice President in the Human Resources & Organization Department (HROD) based in the New York Office. She joined the Graduate Recruitment Team in the Singapore Office back in 2018 and relocated to New York in 2022. Her scope of work primarily focuses on Employer Brand, Mobility as well as Human Resources related projects.
Outside of work, she used to Dragonboat with the GIC team back in Singapore and now, she enjoys spending her time with her two Shetland Sheepdogs and devotes time to keeping fit and healthy through regular fitness classes.
Why did you decide to join GIC?
When I applied to GIC’s Graduate Recruitment team, I found the role of attracting top junior talent incredibly meaningful. I am making an impact by helping GIC to build its talent pipeline, who will help build GIC and Singapore’s financial future.
What does your typical workday look like?
Each day varies a great deal for me. I spend most of my time on work relating to Employer Brand, Mobility and projects such as working with non-profit organisation to host their scholars as interns in our company. Part of my job also requires me to connect with students from the Universities Student Clubs and seek opportunities to increase GIC’s brand awareness. I have frequent calls with the HROD team in Singapore to seek alignment on the various workstreams and ensure that our strategy here in the New York Office remains relevant.
What do you like most about working here?
I love GIC for its people! People in GIC are always so ready to lend a helping hand and are incredibly respectful of each other. We are a community of open-minded people that appreciate feedback and opinions from individuals regardless of their seniority. I also appreciate that the organization takes the effort to bring everyone closer through celebrating events such as the National Day, Fruit Party and GIC Day!
How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?
One of the programs that I felt was beneficial to me was the Global Foundation Programme that GIC organises for new hires and promotes. One of the workshops I attended was ‘Giving Feedback and Coaching’ which I felt was beneficial to me as I learned to approach this using a structured framework. I was able to start honing this skill as I advance in my career.
What you should know before joining GIC
During my time in Graduate Recruitment, I have always enjoyed speaking to candidates who were well-informed on GIC or have taken the effort to speak to our staff to learn more about our culture, departments, and roles. My advice is to learn to brand yourself well and leave a good impression with anyone that you meet as you will never know the opportunities that opens up through these conversations!
