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.
