BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS (April 26th, 2012) – Staying committed to the development of youth in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, Digicel has made its Internship Programme Bigger and Better in 2012. In May of 2011, Digicel opened its doors to students of the Office Administration Management Course (OADM) at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC), heralding the inception of the Internship Programme, Now, students from the Advanced Vocational Education Center (AVEC), a school adopted by Digicel, have been afforded the opportunity to receive the same hands-on experience at Digicel’s Head Office at Port Zante.
So far, six students, one from AVEC and five from CFBC, have all experienced Digicel’s culture and participated in some exciting promotions such as Digicel’s ‘Run With Bolt’ facebook campaign, football halftime activities, island wide Road Shows and also enjoyed interacting and servicing walk-in customers with general inquiries in the Customer Care Center. All interns were well-received by Digicel staff, especially Country Manager, Sean Latty, who was readily available to offer mentoring and career advice.
Marsha Chatterjee, Digicel’s Marketing Manager, was very pleased with the performance of the interns saying that “they have all been very eager to learn and we were all impressed with their work ethics and level of professionalism at such a young age.” In commenting on the importance of programmes such as these, Sean Latty mentioned that “Digicel will continue to grow our Internship Programme to include more schools in the Federation so that more students will be given the opportunity to receive practical job training. We remain committed to developing the minds of the nation’s young adults for the work world and will continue to do our part in achieving this.”
AVEC’s first intern at Digicel, Miss Joady Ann Livingston, not only has a strong focus on her scholastic endeavors, but is also a student who believes in being a well-rounded teen. This coming Friday 27th April, Joady Ann will be participating in the first ever Miss AVEC Pageant, which will be held on the school’s grounds in Basseterre. Digicel will be awarding the winner of this talent competition a new BlackBerry handset with unlimited data and dinner for two at Fisherman’s Wharf.
Digicel stands committed to ensuring that each intern receives the best experience while at The Bigger, Better Network through the Digicel Internship Programme and wishes them all the very best in their future endeavors and careers.
