About Joselyne:

I am an Information Systems graduate from the Akilah Institute. I like working with technology. I’d like to keep working with it as it’s something that I enjoy. Also, I like to help, especially when I see that someone needs it. My long-term goal is to work in a company that can help people in need. Right now, I’m planning to continue my studies in Rwanda to gain more skills, and I’m looking for something to help me grow in my career.

Professional Skills:

Web Design, Professionalism, Marketing, IT Skills, Computer Literacy/ Internet, Personnel/ Team Management

Relevant Work Experience:

I did an internship with a company called Axiom Networks Rwanda. It is an internet service provider. I supported clients and used troubleshooting to solve problems with the internet. I often visited clients, and I would make sure that even clients in new and distant locations could connect.

“I value everyone.”


I received certificates of course completion from the Cisco Networking Academy, including certificates in IT Essentials and CCNA Routing and Switching. I also sat for the Cisco exam.

How I add value to the workplace:

I have problem-solving skills. If there is something that needs to be done, I have the skills to solve it. I also believe that everyone has something special to contribute.

When I was at school, we had to do our first project with web design development. We could ask for limited help and we had a time limit. I came up with a system, but it crashed, and I lost everything all because of one mistake. When I asked for help, I was told that I must fix it myself. So I managed to solve it and fix the issue. I continue to do this. I find the cause and can see the mistake, and then I figure out the issue and how to fix it.

“Nothing is impossible, you just have to take your time.”

How my supervisors and instructors would describe me:

They would describe me as someone who can come up with good ideas. I also have to do what I feel is right. When I was at school, we had to do a project that took a long time. It was the right thing to do to keep working late to get it done. I believe that putting in that energy is important.
