Each year, Belgium Campus iTversity hosts a number of Career Day events where top companies with available IT internship positions are invited to showcase their organisations. These events allow companies to see the high standard at which our students perform and to engage with them as potential employers. They also provide our students with an opportunity to secure their crucial internship year at one of the attending organisations, in order to gain vital industry knowledge and complete their qualifications.

This year, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting our Career Days online. Each attending organisation will be allocated different time slots to meaningfully engage with small groups of our students, between 9am and 5pm, on one of the following dates:

  • 24 July
  • 21 August
  • 16 October

All organisations will also be given access to our students’ CVs and work portfolios prior to the event, so that they can get a better idea of who our students are as well as their specific competencies.

All participating organisations will need to provide a 5 to 10 minute introductory video, and If applicable, a second short testimony video featuring a Belgium Campus student or alumni currently working/completing their internship at their organisation. The videos can contain the following information:

Introductory Video (5-10 minutes)

  • A short intro/background on the company;
  • An explanation of what the company does;
  • The company mission/vision;
  • Projects that the company is involved in;
  • The type of students the company is looking to recruit e.g. bachelor’s degree or diploma;
  • Any other important information or fun facts.

Testimony Video (2-3 minutes)

  • What it’s like to intern/work at the company;
  • What the company culture is like;
  • Opportunities for growth and development at the company;
  • Any other important information or fun facts.

These videos will give our students an opportunity to get to know each company prior to the event. They can also serve as a marketing opportunity, not only to our students, but to the entire Belgium Campus community. With permission from the companies, we will showcase their videos on our website as affiliated organisations. This will be to the benefit of all participating organisations and Belgium Campus iTversity.

Creating opportunities for talented young individuals to access quality higher education regardless of their socio-economic status is high on our agenda at Belgium Campus iTversity. It is for this reason that we request a R25,000 placement fee for every Belgium Campus student successfully placed at an organisation. These placement fees contribute towards our bursary fund and are used solely for the purpose of increasing the number of deserving students who can study with us.

As soon as we have an indication of the amount of organisations that will join us, a schedule will be drawn up and forwarded to each organisation. If you have any enquiries or need further clarification, you can contact us via email at vanwyk.e@belgiumcampus.ac.za, or by phone at 010 593 5368.
