My Reflection, as CEO of iSSC Group, as we are heading towards the last quarter…
iSSC is happy to announce that we have been accepted to the Microsoft Interns4Afrika programme. This programme is designed to provide opportunities for newly graduated students interested in Africa’s growing tech space. Interns will have the chance to expand their training through placement in Microsoft partner companies.
Interns joining the Microsoft Interns4Afrika programme at iSSC will work on a range of projects, from marketing to sales and technology. They will be able to learn and work with the iSSC team and get Microsoft certified in the process, gaining a competitive edge in the tech field.
