MARKETING AND SALES
*MEDIA SALES POSITION (commissioned position)
Start a wonderful and prosperous career with us under our 'Internship Program'.
Finding work can be a challenge; lack of work experience can make it even tougher. On-the job-training with our internship program is a real solution that allows you to get to know potential employers while gaining great work experience.
Internships provide work experience opportunities to university students, recent
graduates, the disabled, retired and or even people in employment who are considering career changes and/or opening their own business; who would like more hands on experience within their respective line of work. Employers are willing to hire interns with little or no experience, especially if the intern is willing to accept little or no monetary compensation. However, the benefits of doing an internship go far beyond the pay!

What do you gain from an internship:
Valuable work experience: An internship/on-the-job training provides the opportunity to gain hands on work experience that you just can't get in the classroom. Maybe you think that as first time job seekers and career changers you are not a desirable candidate, but companies may be willing to train you and give you the experience you need to get a job.
An edge in the job market: Employers are often even more concerned with your work experience than your qualifications, and internship/on-the-job training are often the only way to get the work experience you need to secure a job, so they're a vital part of your CV (Curriculum Vitae). Many employers prefer or require applicants who have done an internship or relevant work experience.
The possibility for transition into a Job: Employers see interns/trainees as prospective employees and so many continue working with the company after they finish their internships. Indeed internships are one way for employers to find new staff in many countries. You may think of it as a really long interview, after which you've proved that you are a capable and hardworking employee. Just as you're giving the industry and the company a trial run, they're doing the same for you.
You will have networking opportunities: Internships/on-the-job trainings are a great way to meet people in your field. Even if you have experience, knowing people helps. An internship allows you to meet people who might help you find a job later on and give you the contacts in the industry you're trying to break into. Plus, references from people in the industry will help your application.
You can apply your classroom knowledge: An internship/on-the-job training can be seen as the final step of your education and give you the chance to use the skills you've learned in the classroom. It's a chance to show that you can perform in the industry you want to work in.
Gain Confidence: Getting experience is a great way to build your confidence. What's more, if you have an impressive CV (Curriculum Vitae), you will be more confident in your chances of securing a job.
