Internships at Dart Enterprises

“Dart has provided work experience opportunities to students for approximately a decade,” says Dart Enterprises Educational Programmes Manager, Glenda McTaggart. “Over the last five years, Dart has introduced more structure to these opportunities, evolving them into an educational programme. While gaining ‘on the job’ experience, students are also assigned real responsibilities,  given deliverables, and held to strict deadlines.

They are required to meet certain criteria while getting hands-on, industry-relevant experience – working side-by- side with professionals who  provide them with guidance, insights and mentoring.” With a portfolio of companies that range from real estate development to retail, finance and technology, there are opportunities to gain  experience in a wide range of industries. Students are matched with positions that align with their studies and career interests, giving them an insight into the various directions their careers could take. “Our work experience is one aspect of our talent pipeline.

Students who perform well, demonstrate future potential and who are a good fit for the organisation are considered for recruitment,” says Glenda. For students whose degree programmes have an internship requirement Glenda works closely with the university and the student to satisfy the internship requirements.
