Qatar Airways inducted 42 Qatari university students into its Summer Internship programme, as part of its Al Darb Qatarisation Programme. The programme provides interns the opportunity to work across various Qatar Airways divisions including Commercial, Finance, Information Technology, Human Resources, Legal and Technical, as well as with Qatar Airways’ Subsidiaries, including Qatar Airways Cargo and Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), allowing them to gain the necessary knowledge to work for the airline after they graduate.

The induction ceremony, held at the Oryx Rotana in Doha, celebrated the fifth year of the programme. Qatar Airways’ Al Darb Qatarisation Programme is a hands-on project that brings young Qataris to develop themselves and their country through the national airline and allows them to apply what they learn in real-life situations in Qatar Airways’ offices around the world.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice-President Human Resources, Nabeela Fakhri, said: “We at Qatar Airways take great pride in our ability to attract and develop world-class talent from here at home within Qatar. Our Al Darb Summer Internship Programme highlights our commitment to premier talent acquisition, and gives our employees the opportunity to leverage their experience for the students’ professional growth. We offer students the opportunity to be part of a team in a truly international company across a wide variety of functional areas to help them find their professional niche.” 

Interns in the programme begin their assignments with four days of training in business communications etiquette, presentations, and Microsoft Excel, to prepare them to work in a professional environment. Following their induction training, students are then paired with a performance coach to ensure that each of them makes the most of their internship experience.

Currently, the Programme features 35 majors and eight programmes including the Summer Internship Programme, National Scholarship Programme, Cadet Pilot Programme, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Programme, Graduate Development Programme, Airport Operations Programme, Aviation Management Programme, and Jossor Programme. It is a tremendous project that brings benefits and opportunities at a variety of different levels and aviation related fields.
