Wasl to train 24 students
Dubai, August 9, 2010
Wasl, a leading Dubai-based asset management group, has inducted 24 students from various universities, colleges and schools in the UAE into a summer training programme.
During the tenure of the summer programme, the students will be rotated across various departments such as human resources, property management, project management, land, finance, procurement and facilities management, a statement said.
The training period will range from one to three months, depending on the department’s requirement, following which the interns will receive a compensating stipend and a certificate of completion from wasl.
“We are delighted with the high level of interest the summer programme has drawn from potential interns,” said Husam Al Sayed, general manager - human resources at wasl.
“This is evident from the fact that this year we have inducted 24 students interning with us.”
“In selecting the students, we have also kept in mind the requests received from all our departments on the number of interns required and the criteria they are required to fulfill.”
“At wasl, we believe such programmes help augment the skills of local school and university graduates and prepare them for challenging careers,” he added.
“Through their time with wasl, the interns will not only observe the dynamics involved in a corporate environment, they will also get to put into practice the academic learning gained from their institutions. Through implementing such programmes, wasl aims to holistically contribute to building the country’s national talent pool,” Al Sayed concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
