The AMASA Learnership Programme, now in its fourth year, has confirmed the employment of four new interns selected from the AAA School of Advertising into the industry. AMASA prides itself in successfully placing candidates after they have completed the internship process.
The Starcom MediaVest Group, The MediaShop and NotaBene will be employing students as part of AMASA’s Learnership initiative. Each new industry entrant will be mentored by their partner agencies, be remunerated and enrolled on the AAA media module and AMASA Media Planning Workshop.
“Our core focus is to attract bright young minds into the exciting world of media, and ensure that the individuals not only excel, but remain within the industry,” says AMASA chairperson, Lyn Jones. “The ALP is one avenue which allows AMASA to follow their mandate of education.”
The ALP calls to graduates who not only possess exceptional academic credentials, but outstanding potential. It offers talented graduates a unique foot into the media industry and the opportunity to be mentored by some of the most respected professionals in the industry. Simultaneously, the ALP assists in curbing the talent shortage from an agency perspective.
“We extend our sincere thanks to The Starcom MediaVest Group who will be employing Lerato Tsotetsi, The MediaShop who welcomes Nonhlanhla Malobola and Thobekile Badebe, and to NotaBene who will be mentoring Wandile Luduwana,” says Lyn. “It is imperative that partner agencies such as these continue to support programmes like the ALP to ensure the continued growth of our industry.”
