Due to popular demand, we are holding a one-day Employment Bootcamp to help fresh graduates to write a CV, cover letter and apply for jobs. At the International Studies Centre, we receive hundreds of CVs monthly from students looking for an internship. Many of these CVs and cover letters don’t get more than a few seconds of our time. Why is this?

Register for this course, pay the 30,000 fee and improve your employment prospects.

Topics covered include

  • Writing a CV

Paid Graduate Internships

Our graduate internship programme is for fresh Tanzanian graduates from any university, looking for their first job. We have many companies in our scheme, all of whom are looking for fresh talent. The internships are for three months and are always paid at least 300,000 Tsh per month. There is always a real job at the end of the internship for successful candidates. We collect the internships from companies and then advertise them to potential interns.

We currently have about 900 potential interns on our database and we try to interview and match as many people as possible. We advertise new internships when we have them so bookmark this page and check back from time to time to see what open internships we have.
