Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) Telenor Pakistan has announced the launch of its Super Intern Programme 2022 for students and graduates to get hands-on experience as they take the initial steps in their professional journey. The six-week internship programme will prepare the interns for the corporate sector and other professional endeavours through an enriched experience of working at Telenor Pakistan.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Telenor Pakistan offered the first ever virtual Internship Programme in the industry, which was welcomed by the youth, academia and many stakeholders. As the threat of COVID-19 subsides and businesses return to normal operations, this year’s internship programme at Telenor will see interns back in the office as the program goes back to a hybrid setting where they will experience both working from home and the office. During the six-week programme, the interns will get an opportunity to get dedicated career counselling, be part of a design thinking workshop, have access to mental health sessions, interact with group interns and alumni, as well as work with the senior leadership in the organisation. In addition, the interns will experience the fantastic work culture at Telenor Pakistan and explore the endless possibilities that a future at Telenor can provide.
“In today’s ever-changing, digitally fast-paced world, it is important that the next generation is equipped with the necessary knowledge of what is to come,” says Oystein Bakken, Chief Human Resources Officer, Telenor Pakistan. “Our internship program offers students the opportunity to work at the hub of innovation, our Telenor offices while gaining first-hand experience and knowledge through our Super Intern 2022 Programme.”
Organisations like Telenor Pakistan act as future gateways for talent development and progression through innovative programs such as the Super Intern Programme. During 2020-2021, the IT and related services sector recorded a growth of nearly 18.85%, which no other industry could do, according to the Economic Survey of Pakistan. As a result, employment in these industries, in particular, is expected to grow significantly in the near future.
