CESA Job Shadow Initiative Winners Announced



The goal of the Job Shadow Initiative is to expose and entice school learners into the engineering field, but more specifically to the specialised field of Consulting Engineering as a career of choice. This year CESA would like to congratulate Knight Piésold who were announced winners of the 2018 CESA Job Shadow Initiative with UWP Consulting as the 1st runner up and Hatch as 2nd runner up.

The Job Shadow Initiative allowed students to experience ‘a Day in the Life of a Consulting Engineer’ helping them to make an informed decision when choosing a career path after high school,” declared CESA’s YPF Chairperson Amanda Masondo-Mkhize.

By giving them an experience like no other, learners get a chance to imagine, live, work and play Engineering – opening their minds to a world of possibilities. Engineers change the world by creating and designing innovative solutions that provide sustainable value-for-money infrastructure important to the communities they serve.

The initiative is geared towards showcasing the engineering profession, particularly consulting engineering as an exciting career option and also serves as a call to action for corporates in the engineering discipline to develop a pipeline of much needed engineering professionals in South Africa.

The Job Shadowing Initiative takes the form of a poster competition, with the top three submissions depicting the learner’s experience, receiving recognition at the CESA Aon Engineering Excellence Awards that was held on the 15th August 2018.
