Program Summary

Finding a job in the current market can be a real challenge for women especially if they dont have any experience. Yet to get the experience they must first find a job. Its a nasty catch that can be difficult to get around but technical training followed by internship is a good way to do it.

Internships provide work experience opportunities to university students fresh graduates and people considering career changes. Banks in Afghanistan indicated the willingness to hire interns with little or no experience especially if the intern is willing to accept little or no monetary compensation.
