Qatargas participated in the first ever Summer Career Boot Camp organized by the Qatar Career Fair (QCF) in partnership with Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) and the Supreme Council of Information and Communication Technology (ictQatar). Around 50 Qatari high school students participated in the camp held from 30 June to 4 July in the Awsaj Academy within the Education City premises.

The aim of the camp was to provide a motivating and educating experience for Qatari high schools students, which will help them when making decisions related to their educational or career plans and provide them with relevant experiences and skills.

Students benefited from career orientation related workshops, designed to build their confidence in making the right decisions for a bright future.  During the camp, students were offered site visit opportunities and job shadowing programs at leading organizations in Qatar to give students a first-hand understanding of what to expect in the real world.

On the last day of the camp, Qatargas participated in a mini fair, which provided the opportunity to showcase the internship opportunities and future career prospects available in the Company. Representatives from the Company’s Learning & Development and Public Relations Departments attended the event.

Qatargas runs a Summer Internship Programme for Qatari national high school and university students. The programme provides valuable opportunities for Qatari high school and university students during the course of their study to familiarize themselves with and gain some experience of a real working environment at the Company’s locations. This is implemented as part of an agreement between Qatargas and the education sector. The internship program also provides opportunities for interns to apply for employment at Qatargas.  Qatargas recently won a Qatarization award for its support and liaison with the education sector.
