Noloyiso Mamputa holds a BSc. in Chemical Engineering from UCT.
This internship has been an interesting experience and has constantly kept me on my toes. I have worked on a number of projects that have enhanced my technical skills in MySQL, Python and R and also soft skills such as time management, empathy and being able to take and give constructive feedback. The most challenging part was the presentation and being tested on my logic and understanding of the work I was doing. I even learnt to chill out at the pool table and play 30 seconds at work. The skills I have learned could be applied to a number of industries and I would highly recommend this internship programme.
Sino holds a BSc. (Hons.) in Mathematics from UCT, and an Honours in Economic Sciences and Bachelor of Economic Sciences from Wits.
Sino has an exceptionally calm demeanour and enjoys solving puzzles and keeping fit.
I have gotten to work on a variety of projects and picked up a range of skills that I know will be useful regardless of where my career goes. I’ve learned to work in small teams, and gained confidence in myself and my work. Oftentimes presentations evolved into discussions where our understanding was tested and we got to explain our reasoning. Overall this has been rewarding experience!
Jan holds a BSc. in Quantitative Risk Management from North-West University.
Jan is a natural all-rounded sportsman who has been a welcome challenge to the tabletennis players in the office.
This six month internship was the bridge I needed to transition from University to adult life! One of the most valuable lessons I learned was that you can’t find a solution without fully understanding the problem. I can now use the many coding options to solve problems more efficiently. I also realized that building relationships with the people you work with is more important than being the first one in the office and the last one to leave. Incline has a company culture that motivates you to grow as a person and as an analyst.
Siphiwo holds a BSc. in Chemical Engineering from UCT.
He is an avid gamer, a Marvel/DC Comics enthusiast and has a great sense of humour.
I especially enjoyed working in a small team with a diverse group of people; some of whom have postgraduate degrees in engineering, and others in statistics, and even having access to senior personnel who have over 15 years’ experience in credit risk. The past six months have been a challenging but rewarding experience during which many of my assumptions have been tested. I hope future interns get a chance to work more often in teams and get a chance to work on more deliverables together.
