Interns 4Afrika Program
Are you looking for a unique opportunity to gain real world work experience and new skills? Do you want to work with a leading technology organization on the African continent? If the answer is yes, the Interns4Afrika program could be for you. It offers talented young people 6 months of work with a Microsoft partner organization on real projects and provides an opportunity to kick start your future. Whether you’re aspiring for a future in sales, marketing or technology, this could be your chance to make a difference.
Microsoft has designed the Interns4Afrika program in response to demand from within its partner population for people like you – entrepreneurial individuals with a passion for technology who are keen to continue learning and have a flexible can-do attitude. As someone who can help shape the Africa of tomorrow, Microsoft has a vested interest in making sure you get the start you deserve and has developed this ground breaking new program with your needs in mind.
Think of it as a 6-month opportunity to inject fresh ideas and energy into a team and a chance to show what you can do. In the first part of your internship, you will be given four weeks of the latest Microsoft training (MS products and solutions) and practical business skills. This will be supplemented by monthly training sessions to continue your professional development and enhance your skills and ability to support the partner organization you are working with.
There are internships available across the African continent in three distinct areas: sales, marketing and technical and we ask you to apply for one of these paths depending on where your skills and passions lie.
All interns will be paid a salary and will be located at and employed by the partner organization for the six-month internship period.
