Finding industrial engineering internships in cosmetics in South Africa

Hi there, I'm in the process of completing my Diploma in Industrial Engineering. I happen to be a qualified Somatologist/Cosmetologist with a Higher Diploma also. I am considering a career path in cosmetic manufacturing and wanted to know how I could find out more about internships at such companies and where do I even start looking for these companies in SA?

Dear Yolandi,

Unfortunately, since we do not have any engineers in the directory from South Africa, you are probably in a much better position to answer this question than anyone on EngineerGirl.  You might start by contacting companies associated with larger organizations like the Cosmetic Export Council of South Africa or the Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association.  L'Oreal offers internships also.  Good luck!
