On the March

On my own initiative, I responded to an advert of internships in the public sector, carried by the Sunday Times careers section. I am pleased to inform you that I was successful in my application. I will be joining the public entity as a research intern for a period of 12 months. The interview occurred on the 1st of June 2007, which happened to be my day of birth. I must mention that topics or themes explored during the WOW programme, to a great deal, helped in improving my approach to interviews, among other aspects.
Though the internship’s financial rewards are not so impressive, I maintain that I shall benefit by way of accumulating experience. However, of utmost importance is that I shall be doing what I enjoy. Moreover, I regard this internship as a unique opportunity for me to serve my country, the Republic of South Africa. I look forward to my first day at the host organization.

Bruce, great stuff! Congrats!! In which department will you work? I hope you will still be on board for the book writing - we need your talents here as well, not just your nation.

Congrats again Bruce. Now I realise that I was wrong when I told you they weren't going to phone you - sorry! It's great that it's for a year - that will give you plenty of time to learn the ropes. Well done! We'll look forward to hearing how it goes on your blog.

Congrats bro! It is excellent to see that you took the initiative and made things happen. (The WoW seminars are clearly bearing fruits). Bruce, keep seizing the opportunities life presents and you'll see more doors swinging open as you go along. Well done!

I guess it’s true that no one can put a good man down. From now on the goal is to make best of the opportunity.
