Zain concludes its summer program with HS Store to upskill university students

Kuwait: The Zain Innovation Campus hosted a special ceremony to mark the successful conclusion of the company’s Summer Internship Program with HS Store. During the event, 40 outstanding trainees were recognized for completing the fourth edition of the renowned program that targeted university-level students and aimed to upskill and prepare young talents for their future careers.

Attended by Zain Kuwait’s Corporate Relations Department Manager Hamad Al Musaibeeh and HS Store Founder and General Manager Fahad Al Mithin, the ceremony featured special moments and unique segments, creating a family atmosphere that reflected the students’ passions throughout the program. This came perfectly in line with Zain’s brand identity: “A Wonderful World.”

During the event, all trainees who joined the fourth edition of the program were recognized for their outstanding efforts and determination in pursuing new life, business, and technical skills. In addition, three of the top-performing trainees had a special honoring after excelling above all and being praised by Zain and HS Store officials and the customers whom they served. At the end of the event, a special video that documented the entire experience replayed the wonderful memories the students created by being a part of this journey.

In its four editions, the Zain HS Store Summer Program was a huge success, having attracted hundreds of eager and dedicated young people who were keen on making the most out of their summer vacation. The students who joined gained invaluable insights, soft skills, and professional competencies that added value to their CVs and helped accelerate their new career journeys.

This year, the program was joined by 40 trainees who were all university students, giving them the opportunity to work for 5 weeks at several HS Store branches across Kuwait. The trainees were responsible for a number of key tasks related to communications, business, technical, and administrative skillsets.

This initiative provided students with a range of workplace skills, such as customer service and engagement, product sales and marketing, electronics maintenance and smartphone repairing, and more. The trainees worked for 4 hours daily within a part-time schedule, and each participant received a cash reward at the end of the program.

The Zain HS Store Summer Program came under the umbrella of Zain’s Future University Network (FUN), a youth-tailored social program for university-level students that bridges the gap between studying and a unique experience at the Zain workplace by recruiting youth as the brand’s main ambassadors.

FUN is one of the largest sustainable projects that Zain has been developing over the years since its first edition in 2008. It offers students an invaluable opportunity to benefit from a real-world work experience to develop many skills and gain expertise on both professional and personal levels, including project management, public relations, social media management, customer engagement, and more.

Zain continues its long-term partnership with HS Store to offer this annual program under its wider community strategy that largely focuses on shouldering the youth and education sectors. This strategy is made possible by leveraging on Zain’s vast network of partners from the community’s top youth-centered entities and organizations.

The company dedicates more efforts and projects that invest in Kuwait’s human capital, especially by focusing on developing the youth’s business competencies to prepare them for their future careers. Zain strongly believes in strengthening the bond between the private sector and the local community, given that it is one of the sector’s biggest players.

HS Store was established in 2011 with the aim of offering tech enthusiasts with a wide range of high-quality products with a hassle-free shopping experience. The store ensures the satisfaction of its customers in Kuwait and throughout the GCC by providing top-in-class devices and accessories and offering specialized maintenance and repair workshops for the most popular smart devices.
