Since 2013, Homecoming Events has run a 12-month internship programme that gives young driven individuals a platform to grow within the entertainment and marketing fields.
7 out 680 applicants were selected to form part of the 2019 program. Innovative, determined and creative individuals were chosen after a series of interviews and challenges.
During the internship, interns rotate among the 5 departments of the company while also being given exposure to elements that relate to their field of study, e.g. law, finance, marketing etc.
The Homecoming Events Internship programme has opened doors for many young individuals to pursue and achieve their dreams. Once the internship has ended, you walk away with new skills, knowledge, insights and a lifelong network of friends and contacts.
Working for HCE was a challenging, but yet an intense year of growth. I came into the company not knowing what to expect, and I came out an individual who became the best version of herself in her youth. I’ll forever be grateful for the honour and opportunity of working for the company, it’s been a great run.
As Robin Sharma would say, “All change is difficult in the beginning, messy in the middle and beautiful in the end” This puts my year at HCE into perspective…A year filled with great lessons I’ll never forget, very challenging but so beautiful in the end.
HCE taught me so much but I also had to act after learning and that’s how growth manifested.
