Interning at the Cape Argus through Bridging Gaps is hands down the best thing I could have done for myself and my career.
As a small, new-ish company, Bridging Gaps have absolutely nailed how they create personal and impactful experiences for all of their interns.
They invest countless hours into all of their interns throughout the application and pre-internship period, so when you actually touch down in Cape Town, they already know exactly what you’re looking for from your internship and what they need to do to help you get the absolute most out of your time there.
Once you’re there, the lovely Lucie and Julian help you get settled in straight away. Whether it’s a tour of the city, a meet and greet with all the interns or giving you the lowdown on the local lingo, the team are committed to helping you get your internship off to a great start.
My internship (Cape Argus) was absolutely full-on and pushed me completely out of my comfort zone. After feeling a little unsettled at the very start, Bridging Gaps were only a phone call away, and soon made me feel much more relaxed about getting well and truly stuck into it.
And that’s the best advice I’d give to anyone considering an internship with Bridging Gaps: grab every opportunity you’re offered with both hands. You’ll get everything and more from your internship if you’re prepared to completely immerse yourself in everything Cape Town has to offer.
For me, that was 60+ published articles, an interview with Francois Pienaar, three trips up Table Mountain, a golden ticket for the job market, and countless memories with the most fantastic people.
So, what you waiting for? Send your application in and get ready for the time of your life!
