Our office family has grown! We now are home to two creative interns. Our new recruits are bright, creative and ready to take on the digital world at RT7. Let’s face it, fresh brains are always a winner. We might have hit the jackpot with them but shhhh…
Working in a such a fast pace environment can be overwhelming. Social media changes, trends change, new technology arises making it important to stay at the top of all things new.
Zarreen’s first impression of us was, “crazy”! Well, she might be absolutely correct. She is currently in process of completing her third year in Public Relations at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
Tawfeeq considers himself to be an overly enthusiastic 22-year-old! He has recently graduated from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Marketing Communications.
