It’s that time of year again, when the international recruitment summits for Africa take place.

From our experience (in Careers) – treat this application like a job application – with a focus on accuracy, professionalism, evidence of your achievements/skills, career motivation. Feedback from GCC is that 1000’s of students apply for these places but many can have basic errors /lack of professionalism which counts them out for the summits.
Message from GCC: Please note that applicants must have an excellent academic track record and work authorisation for at least one African country!
