Following the company’s Technology Top 100 (TT100) win last year for excellence in the management of technology, dotJWT has been confirmed as a preferred internship host partner for the TT100 / Department of Science and Technology 2013 Internship Programme.
“dotJWT will be hosting two computer science graduates for the period of a year. They will be salaried and will follow a structured mentorship programme with our team and the TT100,” explains Yoav Tchelet dotJWT’s Executive Digital Director.
“Our two graduates will follow a structured course that requires them to achieve certain KPI’s as set out to them by the TT100. In addition, they will meet with a representative of TT100 monthly to provide feedback and progress reports on how the training is developing.”
TT100 was founded by Chairman of The DaVinci Institute, Prof Roy Marcus and is an academic body closely aligned with setting the requirements of winning Technology Top 100 companies.
The organisation takes students who are currently undergoing their specialised technology and innovation courses, who are out of work, and place them in a 12-month internship programme at a Technology Top 100 company. The specialised development course is government led and funded.
“JWT is committed to identifying and shaping local talent. This programme, combined with the support of government and the TT100 is invaluable both to the graduates and to dotJWT,” says, Modise Makhene JWT South Africa’s CEO.
“We’re looking forward to mentoring these two students and exploring innovative ideas together which will assist them in enriching their individual skill sets.”
