Republic Bank Launches Graduate Internship Programme

Port of Spain, Trinidad, Thursday October, 17, 2018: Eleven graduates of the University of the West Indies (UWI) were formally inducted into the inaugural Graduate Internship Programme at Republic Bank on Wednesday October 16. The launch took place at the Bank’s Park Street Head Office.

Similar to the Bank’s seven month Youth Link Apprenticeship Programme, which is aimed at Secondary School students this one-year Programme is focused on bridging the gap between education at the tertiary level and the world of work and is backed by years of concentrated focus, vision and strategic planning.

In addressing the interns, General Manager, Human Resources, Mrs. Anna-María García-Brooks, said, “At Republic Bank, we want young professionals with inquisitive minds, who are innovative, creative and daring. Who will be willing and courageous to think differently; who will always aim for higher standards and who will raise the bar on their own performance; who will not place limits on their abilities and who will be resourceful. We want young professionals who are honest, who will learn from their mistakes – because we all make mistakes – and move on, resolving not to repeat those mistakes; we want to help you distinguish yourselves from the rest. To develop a mindset of success and performance. To develop a mindset that embraces others, embraces diversity of thought, and is focused on making a difference in our little space here in Trinidad and Tobago and eventually beyond.”

The guest speaker, Don La Foucade, left a lasting impact on the former students with his exuberant message of inspiration. La Foucade encouraged the interns to believe in themselves and to see this opportunity as the beginning of great things in their life. He also reinforced the benefits of having a positive mindset in allowing one to fulfill one’s purpose.
