MEEZA, the managed IT services and solutions provider has offered a full time position to one of the students who successfully completed its internship programme.

Monia Mohammed Al-Mannai, a final year student at the College of North Atlantic University Qatar (CNA-Q) has been hired as a Human Resources Assistant. Monia said “I am delighted to be offered a full time position at Meeza. The internship programme was a great way for me to apply my academic knowledge to the workplace and I learnt a great deal about the IT industry working for Qatar’s and the regions foremost IT solutions provider.”

The four students were selected after submitting their CVs and attending an interview at MEEZA. The duration of the internship depended on the diploma course each student was taking and they all had to complete the designated programme in order to graduate.

As part of the internship the students had to adhere to MEEZA’s working guidelines, present themselves in a professional manner at all times, maintain a 100% attendance record and by the end of the programme be able to demonstrate they’d acquired communication, team-building, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Each student was assigned a MEEZA mentor who monitored their development away from the classroom and provided regular feedback.  A supervisor and instructor from CNA-Q oversaw the internships to ensure they complimented the academic schedule of each student. 

All interns were evaluated by a dedicated team of mentors from MEEZA who produced daily reports and liaised with a representative from CNA-Q to track each student’s progress.

MEEZA CEO, James Fanella said “MEEZA is delighted to have hosted students from CNA-Q and to have been able to offer a full time position to one of them. They excelled at all the tasks they were assigned and it was a positive experience for both the students and our employees.
MEEZA is committed to the development of a knowledge based society in Qatar and by running these internship programmes we are demonstrating our wholehearted support of the country’s National Vision 2030 and the growth of Qatar’s IT industry”

Dr. Theodore Chiasson, Dean of Information Technology, from CNA-Q said “Internship programs like this are the ideal way to introduce our students to the workplace and allow them to participate on a practical level. Our students benefitted enormously from this opportunity to work for MEEZA and will hopefully be encouraged to pursue fulfilling and rewarding careers in the IT industry.”
