Under the patronage of H E Salim bin Ali al Busaidi, Undersecretary for Human Resources in the Ministry of Labour, Huawei – a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices – launched an ‘Extensive Internship Programme 2021-2022’ in Oman aiming at finding, training, and developing the right talent to support the sultanate’s digital transformation.
The launch ceremony was attended by H E Sheikh Nasr bin Amer al Hosni, Undersecretary in the Ministry of Labour, Eng Omar Hamdan al Ismaili, CEO of Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), Dr Ghalib Hosni, chief people officer of Omantel, and Chen Bing, CEO of Huawei Oman.
The three-year programme offers internships for students who completed their bachelor’s degree, and will be selected by Huawei and the Ministry of Labour based on their GPAs.
A total of 300 internships will be offered with the potential of hiring high performing students at Huawei Oman office.
H E Busaidi said, “We are proud to be collaborating with Huawei on launching this programme and commend them for such initiatives that aim to upskill the youth of Oman and prepare them for the careers of tomorrow. It is our utmost duty to provide the right tools and resources to develop Oman’s ICT talent and support them to realise their full potential.”
Through such joint internship programmes, Chen Bing said, “Huawei aims to develop Oman’s digital ecosystem by empowering the local talents in the ICT field. We firmly believe that developing these skills contributes to Oman’s national vision for long-term economic growth and prosperity.”
The internship programme will start with a three-month online-training course, followed by a three-month classroom training, then practice in actual work after which the students will have a chance to join Huawei or one of its partners for a part-time and full-time on-the-job practice which runs for almost three years. Once the latter is completed, the programme comes to its end and students complete their graduation.
Through this programme, Huawei Oman aims to get the participants job-ready and to provide them with a competitive edge in developing their careers further.
