What is an internship?

An internship may be defined as a career specific work experience that one undertakes during/after one’s studies in order to gain the practical experience required to operate and make a positive contribution with respect to the career path one eventually pursues. With the acknowledgement of the very challenging nature of the job market, acquiring such experience during at an early stage places such an individual at more of a competitive advantage than the average career seeker with little or no experience at all.

During a 12 month internship, the PPECB places successful candidates in critical positions such as Marketing, Finance, IT and Human Resources under the supervision of mentors with extensive experience in these different departments.
