Scuderia South Africa, the official Ferrari dealer proudly announces their 2017 Internship Program.
The exhilarating new project was launched officially on Scuderia South Africa’s social media pages last week. “This program promises to be the start of the greater things to come” says Jan Ungerer, COO of Scuderia South Africa.
Gauteng based applicants aged between 18-25 years were given the opportunity to apply for the anticipated six month internship through South Africa’s official social media pages. To apply, users were requested to post a recent photo of themsleves next to their favourite Ferrari explaining why they felt they were the ideal perfect candidate in 200 words or less.
Aspirants from across the province applied online using the hashtag #ThePursuitOfExcellence in the hope of qualifying to the next level. Ten of the top applicants were then selected to commence to the interview process.
The official Ferrari dealer in South Africa will afford a final two individuals the opportunity to undertake a comprehensive six month internship in both the sales and marketing departments at the Official Ferrari dealer. The project is set to kick start in Johannesburg, but will eventually expand to the branches in Cape Town and Durban.
“The project was launched to afford young, ambitious and passionate individuals the opportunity to learn and engage with the brand at an operational level. The program offers a valuable opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the holistic business model and contribute to assisting the relevant departments on various different tasks” adds Ungerer.
Interns also provide raw talent that can be shaped into targeted and focused employees who can make a long term contribution to the development of the company. These interns can jump-start their careers through such programs and have the opportunity to gain greater responsibility, whilst also building a firm base of contacts and experience and gain specialized training.
The 2017 Internship program is scheduled to commence at Scuderia Johannesburg on the 3 July 2017 to ultimately fulfill the program objective- the pursuit of excellence.
