Yes. CEO1Month is a paid internship where candidates are paid a salary once they complete the one month internship program.
It is not every day that you get a chance to learn from the leaders of Adecco Group. Very often internships lack on the job training or industry experience. After the internship, students do not seek value in their efforts or time put-into the entire internship.
This internship has been designed such that the finalist will have the chance to personally experience the innermost workings of a company where you can meet and work with CXOs, department heads, team managers, specialist consultants and other employees
For questions, queries, concerns regarding the program please get in touch with UAE’s local CEO1Month support team at email@example.com.
