Ufone celebrated the successful conclusion of its flagship Summer Internship Programme (SIP) in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi. Following campus recruitment drives across partner universities where more than 1300 students were evaluated, 41 students were shortlisted after a competitive round of tests and interviews ensuring the highest level of merit and transparency.

These students represented top universities across Pakistan including Lahore University of Management Sciences, Lahore School of Economics, Karachi School of Business & Leadership, SZABIST, Karachi, FAST, Karachi, NUST Business School, Islamabad, College of Electrical & Mechanical Engineering, Islamabad, FAST, Islamabad, Bahria University, Islamabad, Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology, NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Islamabad and NUST School of Sciences and Humanities, Islamabad.

Commencing in July 2017, Ufone's SIP put students through a rigorous regimen including engagement in real life projects while nurturing their skills through purpose built workshops as well as senior leadership interactions. As part of a recurring, prominent feature of the programme, interns spent 24 hours undertaking community work. In Islamabad our interns participated in a campaign "Recognize the Guardians" - through which they handed umbrellas and water bottles to more than 80 traffic police and other law enforcement staff at various check posts and traffic signals, in appreciation of their services.

The interns in Karachi participated in a plantation drive placing planted seed pots, all across the city, and also assigning guardians with the responsibility to nurture them. Meanwhile in Lahore interns participated in highlighting the tireless work of Ufone's internal non-management staff. The interns made "Thank you" cards for select staff members to appreciate their diligent support.-PR
