Most young people who participate in the Eventerprise Young Gun and PostGrad internship programs do so in order to fast-track their knowledge and skills in a real-world environment that offers the opportunity to contribute to go-to-market projects. They are assisted every step of the way by hands-on coaching from accomplished business leaders. In return for their enthusiasm and commitment over the duration of their internship period, Eventerprise Young Guns and PostGrads can expect personal, professional, leadership, and entrepreneurial growth not easily found elsewhere.
The great news is that this career-defining experience is absolutely free, despite the fact that its results surpass those of many management seminars and courses that cost thousands of dollars. Feedback from previous interns who hail from top universities around the world only confirm the great value of an Eventerprise internship.
It must also be noted that under South African legislation we are not permitted to pay international interns. We have instead made digital and entrepreneurial empowerment the focus of the Young Gun and PostGrad programs. International students who would like to participate in an Eventerprise internship, but are short of funds, are often eligible for corporate, academic or non-profit sponsorship. This would need to be organised by the candidates themselves though.
We are also doing our bit in this regard through our Africa’s Got Digital Talent campaign that promotes sponsorship for talented young African students who do not have the resources to attend an unpaid internship otherwise.
