Summer Internships with Fursa

May 23, 2012  |  Shout Outs, Work

Oh to be young again! I would love to go back in time just to experience the joy of having a Summer Internship! Learning the ins and outs of the working sector way before you graduate from university and face the world where everything is big and scary!  Well you don’t have to fear the world anymore, if you’re between the ages of 16 and 27 (in High school or College) you can experience the joy of interning during the summer.

One of the benefits of internships in my point of view is giving our youth a sense of responsibility, instead of having them spend their summers harrassing people, going to shopping malls, restaurants, or cinemas, they can do something useful! Learning about the big bad world way before they have a chance to step into it officially! Thanks to Fursa a non-profit Kuwaiti startup company they are determined to change Kuwait and its youth! And to that I say, “it’s about damn time!”

Fursa has started a summer internship program aimed at youth from the ages of 16 to 27, it gives them a chance to work at a Kuwaiti owned and managed businesses, to help give them an idea of how it feels to work in the private sector as well as learn from what it needs to start their own business one day.  The internship is a paid one (with a maximum amount of 100KD) and that includes an intensive interview with a certified psychologist from the Kuwait Counseling Center as well as pre-work training about work ethics, time management and professionalism.

  1. Thats honestly fantastic! Its a great idea and I hope a lot of people participate in it!

    We need more young people working so they can feel the responsibility and they feel that they are earning something for themselves! I hope Fur9a set an example for many people and companies!

  2. Hello! =)
    This seems great! However, I wanted to ask, is the opportunity available only to Kuwaitis or are non-Kuwaitis welcome as well? Would love to know!

    Thank you!
