This was reported by Dauren Kereibayev, Managing Director for Digitalization and Transformation of Samruk-Kazyna JSC, during the briefing today. According to Dauren Kereibayev, the Digital Summer Program is not aimed at recruiting a certain number of interns for training. The main goal of the Group of Companies of Samruk-Kazyna JSC is to select qualified personnel. Thus, this year we are changing the requirements for the candidates. Now the students have to pass a 4-level selection to become an intern in the Group of Companies. New conditions provide for participation of the third-fourth year students of the Bachelor’s program and first-second year students of the Master’s program. It should be noted that the selection implies four levels: registration and IT online test, IT tasks by profile, ability tests and competency interviews. The important criterion is the IT interest and desire to contribute to the IT development in the Fund’s Companies. Professional experience is not a must to participate in the internship. Basic knowledge of project management, programming, information systems and infrastructure administration, application architecture, information security principles are enough. Bachelor’s and Master’s degree graduates of 2019-2020 can apply to the Digital Summer Internship Program at the official website of the Program http://digital-summer.sk.kz.
