About Qatar Internship Fair 2022:
Qatar Internship Fair (QIF) is an intensive series of professional development activities for youth seeking internship readiness training and placements. QIF partners are committed to offering targeted online workshops and webinars leading up to the opportunity to pursue 2 to 6-month internships.
QIF is a 3-day career and networking fair where companies will open their doors for high school and university students to work in different fields of interest to help them understand organizational behavior and develop their workplace skills. Those same companies will meet one another in daily speed networking sessions and give insightful and mutually beneficial talks on topics of their choice.
Our target market is youth between the ages of 16 and 29 seeking internships or professional practice experiences willing to receive career guidance and support. We also want young professionals and businesses to attend for networking and community-building purposes.
QIF will be split into the following three sections:
- QIF Workshops: a set of sessions and workshops to prepare youth to apply and get internships
- QIF Exhibition: to provide internship opportunities to current high-school, undergraduate and post-graduate students
- QIF Fair Lounge: to offer an opportunity for dialogue between companies and youth
To be confirmed soon!

QIF 2022 Quality Assurance
QIF is built on the basis that internships are a mutually beneficial engagement. QIF recognizes the youth’s many talents and their drive to learn, create, and grow in their professional careers. All participating organizations in QIF are selected based on a clear criterion based on TYC Internship Standardization. Organizations are also highly encouraged to offer internship opportunities that include the possibility of transitioning to full-time employee hires.
Given that their participation is granted at no personal cost, participating youth are also screened with at least one reference check and attendance of at least 80% of their registered workshops throughout QIF to be eligible to interview for the available internships during the summit.
Hired interns and the respective organizations are periodically interviewed about their experience to collect feedback for future iterations of the QIF.
Industry partners that will host the internships are amongst the following sectors:
|Government & Semi-Government||Energy, Oil & Gas||Media, PR, Marketing, Publishing & Events||IT & Telecommunications|
|Education||Agriculture||Health & Fitness||Non-Profit|
