ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Youth Affairs Program has planned to start National Internship Programme for fresh graduates in the country, Radio Pakistan reported.
According to official sources, the main objective of the internship program is to create maximum employment opportunities for youth.
Following the internship duration, the participating graduates would be offered jobs in public and private sector on the basis of their performances.
The internship program would not only help to reduce the unemployment ratio among youth but also serve to address various economic and social sectors demanding potential human resource.
