Careem is launching a four-week Senior Internship Program in order to empower retired and senior citizens in the community. Participants will gain an understanding of the fast-paced technology environment through this training. The name of the programme comes from the film “The Intern,” and it is intended to promote the idea that growing older is a positive experience in and of itself.
As a result of hearing from a large number of elderly and retired people who are either attempting to adjust to post-retirement life or who still wish to serve, the team felt obligated to develop a programme that fulfils their unmet expectations.
Careem wishes to provide its members with the opportunity to enhance their abilities because there are no formal or informal platforms for senior citizens in Pakistan.
At the same time, the team is looking forward to utilising the interns’ wealth of knowledge and experience garnered from working in the industry for such a long period of time.
Designed for persons over 50, the internship programme seeks to provide an educational and gratifying experience for those who have just retired from a variety of organisations.
While there are no hard and fast rules, anyone who is interested in applying should be open-minded and motivated to learn as much as possible.
Careem was taken aback when more than 200 applications for the internship programme were received from locations all over Pakistan. Applications for the programme are accepted from older business owners, retired government officials, and even non-working parents who are interested in finding job.
