Bridging the skills gap

Dikeledi Mauwane

Where, when and what did you study?

I studied for a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Rhodes University, majoring in economics and management. I completed my degree last year and graduated in April.

How did you find out about ABB?

My aunt told me about ABB which led me to do my own research. I saw that ABB was a reputable and ethical company and I became interested in how it had achieved this image.I thought ABB could help me development and provide me with knowledge and experience.

How has your experience been so far?

In the month and 20 days I have been at ABB, I have been challenged and guided into my career and mental development — through practical work and training. This experience has not only made me more interested in my field of project controlling, but has got me interested in project management.

What do you like most about ABB?

The training has been the most important aspect of the graduate development programme. It is an investment in all graduate project controllers and it has given me the platform to perform at the best of my ability.
