If you’re a parent worried about your child enrolling in one of our internship programs, here are some reasons why you should consider this.
Even upon graduation, many youngsters still do not know what they want to do with their lives because they lack focus and direction. They haven’t identified what their purpose is, and they often end up making the wrong choices. Our programs are carefully designed to help them identify what their skills are with the help of our professional career coaches, and equally help them transform their skills and knowledge into competencies.
Our interns are exposed to a network of creative business people and peers from top universities, and this can only be good for them. The life experience builds in resilience skills, confidence and growth in them. A matured mindset is equally enhanced.
