CAPE TOWN, (CAJ News) – ERICSSON has pledged to provide world-class learning and career development opportunities to young talent in Africa and the Middle East.
This is through the Gen-E Graduate Programme, which it has launched.
The technology company said the programme provides well-structured development alongside world-class information and communication technology (ICT) industry experts to promote the potential of youth in the field.
Through experiential and tailored growth plans, the graduates will embark on an early-career journey that includes a series of training sessions, rotations, mentoring as well as gaining skills in areas like Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and other cutting-edge technologies.
