Productive and free workplace with really good coffee
Marketing Assistant (Internship) (Current Employee) – Bellville, Cape Town – 23 May 2016
One of the key qualities learnt while working at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) is to do whatever you can as soon as possible. The environment that I work in can be quiet at times, and within the space of a few minutes, you could be swamped with work. No two days are really the same - which I like because it keeps you on your toes.
I find that working alongside my team at CPUT fills me with great happiness. We work as a unit, and help each other whenever we see the need, or when we are asked to do so. We generally take initiative since work can at times be stressful.
The best part of the job for me personally is when we host an event and EVERYONE involved pulls together to get it done. As you well know, when planning events you come up with every scenario possible so that you have contingencies in cases of emergency, but often things dont work out according to plan, so when we pull together to host a successful event and people have a good time without knowing that we had an issue in the background, is what I love. No matter what, its about the experience guests have (in the business of events).
