CoreXalance welcomes two new interns

CoreXalance is excited to welcome two new interns into our Business Skills Development Program.
This Internship Program, which forms part of our corporate social responsibility, was launched after we recognised the lack of skills, experience and work ethic in the youth of today. The aim of this program is to grab those entering into the workplace and give them the skills and experience they would need in the business environment.

Arriving on their first day, Jabulile (Jabu) Kgaole and Paballo (Pabi) Bachoko had looks of excitement and trepidation on their faces. The girls, who are both 19 years old, come from the West Rand and matriculated last year. They have been working part-time since leaving school; Jabu as a child-minder and Pabi as an administrative assistant for her local church, and when they heard about the internship they decided to "grab the opportunity and give it a try".

The first round of interviews involved six candidates and various group exercises; skill assessments and personality tests. The list was then narrowed down to three candidates and the individual interviews took place on 22 July. Jabu and Pabi were then chosen as the final two interns to enter into the program. Their first official work day, on Friday, 1 August, included a brief induction on who CoreXalance is and what we do and they were also introduced to the rest of our team. The girls described their experience as nerve-wracking yet exciting and they "felt very welcomed by everyone".

Over the next six months the girls will be receiving basic computer and switchboard training as well as training on what each department, within the company, does. They will be given the opportunity to "shadow" each employee for a period of time and discover where they fit in best.

We are very excited to guide Jabu and Pabi through this journey and invite you to follow our "Life in the day of an Intern" series via our website and blog.
