Joelle Sakr – Completed her internship at Azadea.
“My internship at Azadea was more fulfilling than I had expected it to be. I had planned to simply learn about communication in a professional setting. Not only did I achieve that, but I also learned about myself - I learned to set goals, action plans and achieve. Thank you OSB for making this a requirement, and thank you Azadea for not making it feel like a requirement!" – October 2018
Rana El Hasbani – Completed her internship at PwC. Created an A to Z guide for individuals who wish to start their own businesses.
“A Lebanese company: From dusk till dawn' is a project I developed as a requirement at the end of my internship. As I started to write it and hoping to finish the soonest possible and in the fastest way to enjoy my summer, I started to realize the amount of information I am acquiring and how much of the information I'm writing is not available for the public in Lebanon, especially the students who want to start their own small businesses. It is basically a report that covers all the requirements recommended in order to open up a business in Lebanon. It includes the different types of business structure in Lebanon, the process of founding a company, the employment process, enrollment in value added tax department, income tax declaration, tax on capital profit and the liquidation of the company if it is the case." – October 2017
Nada Ben Jemaa – Completed her internship at UNESCWA. Co-authored in an article to be published by the organization.
“My internship at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia was far and away my most rewarding internship experience. As an Economic Affairs intern, I was entrusted with a combination of administrative tasks and substantive projects, all the while keeping a perfect balance between guidance and autonomy. My research, analytical, and communication skills have all been polished tremendously throughout this internship. In addition, I developed invaluable networks that allowed me to pursue further opportunities in the field. I am now more determined and confident about entering the international affairs arena" – October 2017
