My name is Sizwe Felix Mhlongo, im 21 years of age, I was born in a small town called Driekoppies in Nelspruit (MPUMALANGA PROVINCE). I completed my matric in 2014 in a school called Driekoppies Combined School and in 2015 I enrolled with Tshwane North tvet College (Temba Campus) where I did FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT introductory N4 thereafter N4 to N6 of which I’ve completed in June 2017.
Unfortunately I don’t have any previous work experience
Why Financial Management N6
I believe that someone got to start somewhere in the process of becoming one of the most highly reputable and dignified Chartered Accountantant in South Africa so Financial Management was a starting point for me I love working with numbers, and accounting is my passion and besides that, there is only few or a minority of black accountants out there so I want to put my name on the map as well plus the benefits are pretty much good.
How I Got My Internship
A friend of mine whom I was attending with at the Campus advised me to register with the GWCONNECT website and ensure that my profile was 100% complete of which I did that immediately and after a few days I received a call from the Outex Chartered Accountants guys situated in Brooklyn opposite Chamberlain hardware whereby they were inviting me for an interview, I went there and I was interviewed, deep down my heart I knew that I have already passed the interview, to me attending it, it was just for formality reasons.
Well im working for Bigsave Distribution Center situated in Mamelodi (313 Zasm street), Man the team is amazing, im talking about inclusivity,Team work and Culture.
When you enter Bigsave premises there is nothing like “me, I or them” its all about team spirit and ensuring that we stay shining and keeping our brand afloat which is BIGSAVE.
Im really looking forward to complete my internship and also I see myself gaining a lot of workplace experience in the field of which im qualified for #FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
