Isaac Makokoe is an MTech graduate who attributes his success to his supervisor
Isaac Makokoe now holds a Magister Technologiae (MTech) in Marketing from Vaal University of Technology. He started out in his career as a petrol attendant, became a retail ambassador at British American Tobacco and is now a Commercial Fuels Area Manager at Engine Oil Petroleum Company.
However, Mr Makokoe has not had an easy path to success; he mentioned that from his first year at university, he had financial problems right until he did his MTech when he was finally able to secure financial assistance from the university. He also had to divide his time amongst his family, work and studies.
He says it was through the firm support of his supervisor that he managed to graduate: “My supervisor; she is the best. She pushed me very hard and today I see the results of the pressure she gave me. She would make time for me even on Sundays and I owe her a big thank you for that.”
Mr Makokoe went on to say that in order to succeed in studies, some things might look difficult, but once a person enrolls and starts networking, everything becomes easier.
