Intern Dynamix places unemployed graduates in internship programmes in corporates as an opportunity to gain work experience in businesses they can possibly find full-time jobs in.
The initiative between 702, EOH and government appeals to CEOs and senior company executives to employ South Africa's youth to contribute towards skills development and alleviate unemployment.
It stems from the belief that the problem in the country isn't a shortage of jobs but one of skills with the objective to create 100 000 jobs by 2020.
Speaking to 702's John Robbie, director of the company, Roger Warries, said the interns are in a position to build networks that will help them further their careers.

We focus on getting graduates who are struggling to get into the formal employment scene and give them an opportunity to demonstrate their skills to the corporate world.— Roger Warries, Intern Dynamix director
It's a critical component. We find that interns are more likely to be placed in the companies where they've served the internships and they are able to build fantastic network opportunities as well.— Roger Warries, Intern Dynamix director
