The government of Pakistan decided to restart the National Internship Program for fresh graduates.
National Internship Program or NIP will be restarted by Prime Minister Youth Affairs Program. The internship program is aimed to create job opportunities for fresh graduates. However, after the completion of their internship, the participants will also be offered jobs in the private and public sector on the basis of their performance.
NIP will help reduce the unemployment ratio along with bridging the gap between the human resource pool and those who are looking for it.
According to sources, National Internship Program was stalled after the regime change in 2018 and no new batch was announced after the completion of the last one. There was also a survey conducted prior to this announcement to get the NIP interns’ feedback regarding their experience of the program and if it helped them in enhancing their skills and securing a job.
