Graduate Internship Program | Africa Internship Academy

AIA Graduate Internship Program

Our Graduate Internship Programs will enable you to develop your skills and build your career while sitting side-by-side with our business leaders and have the opportunity to work on projects from day one.

This Work Integrated Learning program is designed for young graduates and professionals who are eager to learn and gain employable skills. Depending on the career sector and profession you choose to work in, there could be very specific skills, abilities and knowledge needed to do the job. However, complementing these are general competencies and behaviours that are essential for successful working.

These are the key employability skills – the core skills that will make you effective at work, whatever job you do. They are sometimes known as transferable skills because you develop them over time and take them with you as your career develops; think of them as your passport to career success. You'll need to draw on your work experience to give evidence of these skills.

The top ten skills graduate recruiters want:

  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Problem-solving
  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Perseverance and motivation
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • Analytical skills
  • Enterprise and entrepreneurial skills
  • IT skills

All qualified applicants are enrolled in our 4-week Work Integrated Learning Program at the Africa Internship Academy. You will work on challenging and hands-on enterprise and management-related projects to solve real problems during your 4-week immersion, together with AIA’s faculty and enterprise mentors.

B. As part of your online application, you will be asked to provide a copy of your resume/CV. We require that all documents are uploaded in English, and do not typically exceed two pages. The resume/CV is a very important part of your application so we do recommend you take your time to review details carefully for spelling and grammar errors.

C. A phone interview is a mandatory component of your application, allowing our team to understand more about your background and previous experience(s). The interview is normally around 20-30 minutes long.
