My name Is Makgophola Jacob Nkoana from Hammanskraal, Pretoria. I attended my high school at Tipfuxeni Secondary School, matriculated in 2014 and went to further my studies at Tshwane North TVET College (Temba Campus) where I studied Financial Management from 2017 to 2018.
Never worked before I got this internship.
Why Financial Management
While in high school, I developed love for accounting and working with numbers, so after matric I needed to do a course that included working with numbers/Accounting but also a career that had many employment opportunities. I did my research and Financial Management seemed like the best course to do and a career to follow.
How I Got My Internship
Like many students after completing their studies, the next step is to look for internship or a job. So, I spent most of the time on the internet applying that’s when I saw a link about GW-CONNECT, got in and registered after a few weeks I got a call from OUTEX about an interview. I went there for an interview and as they say the rest is history.
I am currently working at BIG SAVE Distribution Center situated in Mamelodi, The Company has few branches around Gauteng and one in Limpopo, it is still growing, and it is one of the most loved wholesalers in the province. I am grateful for the opportunity they gave me to learn and gain experience in the finance sector. Thanks to the Outex team. The people working here are very helpful and the teamwork is amazing, they are always willing to assist and it’s a nice environment to work in.
