After graduating, I participated in two phases of the Water Graduate Employment Program. The WGEPI focused mainly on work exposure, while WGEPII is focusing on workplace readiness and how professional growth can be achieved. Given the state of employment challenges for graduates, I am grateful I was given the opportunity to improve my research skills and learn from the leaders at Water Research Commission. I would also like to thank Gabriel & Associates (Pty) Ltd for providing support and coaches to help with workplace readiness and providing seminars to help in this regard. I am currently working as a Civil Engineering Intern and I’m looking forward to using what I have learned in the program and applying it to my professional growth”, states Thulani Mahlangu.
