PETALING JAYA: Hafiz Ariffin never realised how much work a Prime Minister had until he saw it for himself.
The 25-year-old was selected last year to work as an intern for Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak himself through the prestigious Perdana Fellowship.
Following the stint, he was offered a permanent job and now works for the Prime Minister’s Department.
Hafiz is among those who were given an invaluable opportunity to work as interns under federal government ministers.
Launched in July last year, the programme saw the first batch of 70 interns placed under various ministries.
The fellowship is now looking for its second batch of driven Malaysians, and offering them the chance to learn from the Cabinet ministers.
This internship programme, similar to that of the White House, ranges from six weeks to six months.
To apply for the Perdana Fellows Graduate or Perdana Fellows Undergraduate programme, applicants must submit their curriculum vitae, accompanied by a 500-word essay.
The essay must explain which public policy issue they consider most pressing and suggest ways to address it better.
Applicants are advised to submit their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org before May 30.
