Lerato Kekana (22)
As an aspiring marketer, I felt that the corporate world would be too structured but, after hearing about Sun International’s internship programme, I realised the importance of being part of a brand which has been around for a long time. After interning for six months in the corporate PR department, I was given an opportunity to work with the events marketing team, mainly focusing on the Miss South Africa pageant and The Sun Met among other events.
I loved that everything I had learnt in third year was finally illustrated practically. I fell in love with the people at Sun International, the corporate social investment projects we participated in and, most importantly, I enjoyed growing both academically and as a person. There is always something new to learn at Sun International and with that a willing and helpful hand to assist. I would recommend Sun International to prospect interns because when you leave Sun International, you leave with intangible, invaluable qualities.

Digital Marketing Intern
I chose Sun International due to the fact it’s one of the largest hospitality companies within the tourism industry and I knew I could gain a lot of experience to kick-start my career. Part of my daily responsibilities included research; report writing; web briefs; project co-ordination and digital media research. What I loved most about my internship was that I was able to meet new and different people and that I gained invaluable insight into innovative and exciting digital projects.
I would recommend Sun International due to the fact it’s a well-recognised company in South Africa, you get exposed to different aspects within the company and about the industry.
The South African Graduate Employers Association (SAGEA) named Sun International as a Top Employer in the Leisure Category in their Employer Awards 2016. We are currently revising our Graduate Development Programme, stay tuned for more information.
