2017 is here and its time to hunt for an opportunity. Internships whether from the NSSF and any other are simply hands-on job training opportunities which are intended to equip those who undergo them with the necessary expertize with regard to their academic fields and usually, it is a requirement in most tertiary institutions like universities where by before doing the final examinations, students are send in the field for internships as part of fulfilling their study requirements.
Internships can be both free and or paid opportunities depending on the terms offered by the participating organizations and regardless of what, the one who undertakes such an opportunity is always guaranteed to get a reward which may be a working experience and which is required for many white cola jobs.
In Uganda just like it happens in many other countries where internships are a requirement, students are requested to seek out for such opportunities by themselves since in the end, reports and dissertations about whatever one was involved in are required and do weigh towards the final grading of students on a calculated percentage. And if you have always been wondering some of the places or organizations in Uganda where you can undergo an internship, the NSSF is one of the government owned set up institutions where that can be done.
Known as the National Social Security fund,the NSSF is a Uganda National Saving Scheme which is mandated by Uganda Government so as to provide employees with social security services and once every year between June through August or even September, the body does allocate a number of internship opportunities and industrial training which are selected through an electronic draw to those in need for example the University students provided they do follow the required procedures to getting started and below is how to exactly go about it.
