It’s a chance to identify young talent while learning from the next generation
The ZIS Internship Program celebrated its 10th year this summer with a special apero to mark the occasion.
Speaking at the event, Ivan Vercoutere, managing partner at LGT Capital Partners and ZIS parent, described the program as a “win-win situation” that benefits students while allowing companies to learn from the next generation. He also described how it identifies young talent, and encouraged other companies to offer placements as it is “a great experience on both sides”.
Last year, 85 Grade 11 students benefited from the program, which includes learning to write a CV and a letter of motivation, developing interview skills and using social media for career purposes.
This summer’s program saw 55 students spend from two to six weeks at 47 businesses and hospitals.
