I absolutely loved my internship at Taurus and would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Because of the amazing experience I had, I can’t wait to finish university and kick start my career in the exact same area. I highly recommend the TaurusAcademy© program for anyone who has an interest in the Marketing/PR area.
Through the TaurusFastTrack© program, Taurus nurtured my passion for PR/ Marketing and fast-tracked my career. I was able to learn from some of the best in the industry and work with some amazing clients across the B2B and B2C space. There are no two days the same here at Taurus – we’re always strategising, thinking and re-thinking what’s next.

The Social Media Strategy workshop was a great opportunity to learn and become aware that digital engagement is key to stay connected but also to make connections. These connections may link you to your dream job…
