Internships

 

Associated Media Publishing is passionate about supporting young South African talent by contributing to skills development in the media industry. We work closely with SETA to establish an internship programme.

February 2018 marked the launch of AMP’s first structured internship, funded by the Services SETA, and in partnership with EOH. With a growing focus on the development of our people, initiating these internships presented a year-long opportunity of learning for both the interns and their respective mentors and teams. After all…

 

‘The best way to learn is to teach.’ – Frank Oppenheimer

Some of our past interns shared their success stories with us:

“I recently wrapped up my six month internship with Marie Claire (with a heavy heart, might I add). The experience is truly priceless. I was given the opportunity to work with the most inspiring people in the industry, and my opinion and creative input was never overlooked. To anyone considering an internship with a magazine like Marie Claire, the job is worth it. No one said it would be easy.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at AMP. I met the most amazing people and without the experience I gained in the time I was there, I would never have been where I am today. I am currently freelancing for AMP.”

~ Marcus, Sales and Promotions Designer

 

“The experience I gained is invaluable – AMP is an amazing company to work for. The team I worked with is amazing, so full of knowledge and not afraid to share it with anyone. I would definitely go back to AMP in a heartbeat. Since leaving AMP, I must say that I have a great advantage over most other interns – AMP has been a great start to my career. It has opened doors to many opportunities.”
