Prime Minister Youth Affairs Program has decided to start the National Internship Program (NIP) for fresh graduates.
The internship program aims to create optimal employment opportunities for youth. After completing their internship, the participating youth will also be offered jobs in the public and private sector on the basis of their performance.
This program will help reduce the unemployment ratio along with bridging the gap between the human resource pool and those who are looking for it.
NIP 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.
