Apply for a Samsung sponsored internship at Tshimologong

Posted about by Siviwe Ngani

One of the challenges is that graduates are struggling to find jobs in software development. The reason is that the industry expects them to have at least 2 to 4 years’ experience. In reality, when interns work in industry under real-world pressure, they are at the mercy of those who have the time and willingness to teach. Thus, it takes longer to gain the necessary experience.  

One of our collaborative partners, Samsung South Africa, is committed to the vision of growing skills and has generously sponsored an ambitious 9-month internship programme where 7 selected interns will work with a senior developer to grow their skills. The sole responsibility of the senior developer is to focus full-time on the growth of the interns by providing the right mentorship and guiding them on realistic projects. The interns will be subject to high intensity and fast-paced learning over the 9-months and will be covering the equivalent of up to 4 years in the industry. 

We are looking for graduates who are able to demonstrate their ability to code in C#, Java or even C++ and are familiar with object-oriented principles. If you think you have what it takes, please send your CV’s to internship@tshimologong.joburg  Also, ensure to include a Covering Letter that explains what prior programming knowledge you have. 

You will be paid a stipend for the duration of the internship. The internship will start on the 6th of January 2020 and the programme will be in C#, ASP.NET Webforms and then move to ASP.NET MVC. 

We will also cover database design and communication in SQL. We will be using Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition.
