The Interns 4Afrika program seeks to offer graduates a chance to grow their careers through the virtual training and placements in Microsoft partner organizations. The six-month internship will offer participants an opportunity to work on real Microsoft projects either in sales, marketing or technology. Application process is ongoing.
Microsoft has partnered with Fuzu, an online career development and employment platform, to organize the Interns4Afrika program in response to demand from its software distribution and development partners across Africa. The program aims to empower local communities by providing real employment opportunities to talented young professionals within the Middle East and Africa.
The internship is a full-time six-month commitment and opportunity to work on projects in sales, marketing, or technology. Interns will also get an opportunity to become Microsoft certified which is a certification that sets candidates apart from their peers, making them more competitive. Sales interns will interact directly with customers honing their sales craft and putting to practice the material learnt during the online training. Marketing interns will receive support from Microsoft and their partners on how to promote digital solutions to the larger audience of international users. Tech interns will help solve problems in the cloud-first, mobile-first world while learning about the latest Microsoft technologies.
Application process is ongoing.
