Summer micro-placement opportunity for students with Splento

Splento is offering an opportunity for students to apply for their 4-week placement which would see them learn the essential skills required to excel in a firm and a tech startup alike. Their journey exploring and establishing new markets overseas will see them learn skills from content creation to market analysis, from sales to leadership, and be a stepping stone to increasing their employability.

It can be likened to a crash course into being a super effective 21st century employee, balancing many needs, making educated decisions and standing by them, taking the best action possible within the time constraints and uncertainty surrounding a given situation.

This micro-placement is completely remote and free of charge, however, the amount of students they can intake is limited so they will be very selective.

You can apply here.
