The Interns4Afrika program offers talented young people a unique experience with a dynamic and agile technology organization on the African continent. You will work for 6 months with a Microsoft partner on real projects, collaborating and learning from your colleagues. Whether you’re aspiring for a future in sales, marketing or technology, this is your chance to kick-start your future.
If you are passionate about interacting directly with customers and being on the front line to bring the magic of software to customers and businesses, the Interns4Afrika sales path could be right for you. If you follow the sales path Microsoft, along with our partners will provide you with a dynamic tool kit to enable you to hone your sales craft and take your first steps to becoming a world-class sales professional.
After the 6-month internship period the partner organization may offer you a permanent position,
however there is no obligation for them to do so. A large proportion of our interns are offered a
position at the partner organization after their internship, and the majority of those that don’t,
secure employment elsewhere as a result of the valuable work experience that their internship
provided. So work hard during your internship to make sure you get that offer for a permanent
role! This is your chance.
