Career services today just aren't effective, especially compared to the cost of our education and how little is guaranteed in our careers after graduation. So we decided to change that and introduce 'Interns Program'.
It is an Immersive Internship Program that prepares students for the world's most in-demand careers. A six weeks program completely based on learning and challenges. Students start its week by learning a skill and later they get an opportunity to work on a real-world problem related to that skill and have fun along the way.
With each round/week, students who are unable to complete the challenges are eliminated automatically. Hence the program will output students who are self-motivated and have an aptitude for learning new things.
Earlier this year, we launched our first intern's program. Since this was a start, so we took students who were interested in learning and developing skills to be a front-end developer.
A total of 300 applications were received, out of which 200 applications were accepted based on the criteria set initially by us.
A general overview of our core modules and schedule for our front-end developer program:
HTML is the skeleton of all the web pages. Hence it was essential to give a quick go through.
Cascading Style Sheets or CSS are an important way to control how your web pages look and feel.
PHP is a language which is easy to learn. Hence the students who actually have issues in learning coding, PHP could be a good started for them. And we needed it in this program due to WordPress.
WordPress powers 22.5% of all websites on the internet, hence its the most powerful CMS. Plus a angle that needs to be taught here is that WordPress is not just a blog, is a lot more.
A project was assigned to each intern which required them to use the skills they had developed earlier.
As we moved along the weeks, students did got eliminated. We started with 200 interns and in the end only 48 best remained who manage to complete all the challenges.
It was important to challenge the learnings of interns, hence at the end of each week they were provided with the challenges to complete. With all the challenges they manage to complete, the end result was a product. They helped us build a learning module, which we will be launching soon.
Each intern was assigned a project and it was made sure that they use the skills they have learned. Some of the highlighted work is as under:
In the end, what matters more is the interns, who were able to learn and at the same time enjoy the program. Here are some of the feedbacks shared via our interns:
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship and now have very valuable experience under my belt. I know this will help when looking for jobs and needing references. I was dreading it in the beginning, but now I am so happy it was required. As much as the curriculum changes, I hope that class remains constant.
This experience has only gotten me more excited to continue in this field for my career. Many times an internship is a wake-up call to students that they're in the wrong major, but it was the opposite for me. Not everyone will have a great experience, but being an intern is one of the best things I've ever done! Annus Bin Zia

So after a long break from coding I found it pretty hard to get back on track & had lost confidence in myself but I feel lucky to be a part of this program it was very helpful, creative & has given me my confidence back plus I have my own portfolio now. Mr. Shahzaib was very helpful & guided throughout the program in best possible way and never got annoyed by any of the msg or the question. I loved this whole program and I blessed to be a part of it. Alhamdulilah. Thank you Interns PakistanAyesha Naved
When I first enrolled in the Interns Program i didn't really expect to learn so much about so many different area from html to php and even further.

A Great experience it has been :) Thankyou Humayoun Baig

I thoroughly enjoyed this internship program. I really want to appreciate the efforts of INTERNS PAKISTAN to give us this opportunity to learn in an organized way and due to this I also audited myself for where I lie on the graph of knowing or understanding different languages or frameworks. Maha
