F.A.Qs

How do I apply?

The application process is very simple – there is not even a cover letter! On the Apply page, just fill in your basic information and upload a CV. Press ‘submit’ and you’re done!

What are the dates of the program?

Afrijob offers short-term fellowships, remote work, as well as full-time job opportunities.

For the upcoming summer 2020 internship, fellows are advised to intern for between 8-12 weeks at any point between May and September.

When is the application deadline?

Our applications are accepted on a rolling basis and candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

When will I know whether or not I’ve been accepted?

You will be informed as soon as possible by the Afrijob.org team. 

What costs are covered by the program?

Costs covered by the program will depend on the company partner one is matched with. Some start-ups provide housing, as well as a living stipend. Others will provide fewer amenities. 

What costs are Afrijob fellows expected to cover?

Short-term fellows are responsible for visa fees, travel insurance, the cost of the flight, as well as any miscellaneous costs while in Africa (exploratory travel, souvenirs, etc.). 

Other costs (such as housing and day-to-day living expenses) will depend on the  company partner with whom the fellow is matched.

What fellowship opportunities does Afrijob provide?

Please see Our Partners.
