Tech for Good

In Africa, COVID-19 disrupted millions of people including businesses and organizations. Many are unemployed and several are working from home. Within a few months, our lives have drastically changed due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). Social distancing has been enforced in many parts of the world in order to save lives.

The impact of COVID-19 is being greatly felt, as the pandemic has slowed economic life globally.

We can't stand by and not do our part. As an organization, we have committed to helping young people find their next job and for organizations to continue engaging exceptional talents in Africa to get the work done.

TalentsinAfrica invites you to use the power of technology and business as a force for good. Host our fellows from the Internship Academy and enhance your diversity recruitment strategy and change lives.

Interns pathway stories

Internship academy gave me the opportunity to learn digital skills; especially combined with presentation skills. These skills helped me to pass all the levels of interview sessions online in applying for a banking job. Now I'm building the career I’ve always wanted with Access Bank PLC in less than 90 days after graduating from the Internship Academy.
