KARACHI (PR) – Fifteen young engineering and business graduates including one female engineer started their internships at the Guddu Thermal Power Station on December 12. The six-month internship programme, designed with support from the USAID Energy Policy Project, seeks to provide young graduates with valuable practical experience in the energy sector to help them obtain employment more quickly.

 “We hope that this internship programme will go a long way in building the capacity of power sector entities by engaging the youth for a brighter future of Pakistan,” said Daniel Vincent, Deputy Chief of Party, USAID Energy Policy Project. “Through the internship programme, the interns will have the opportunity to apply their intellect and knowledge in a real working environment and gain experience which will help them transition to the professional world.”
