Senior students start Customer Experience Internships at Al-Futtaim Automotive
April 2021 – Six senior students from DIS began their Customer Experience Internships at Al-Futtaim Automotive during the first week of Ramadan, along with 12 students from Universal American School.
The students will be learning the ropes “on the floor” at Toyota, Lexus, Volvo, Honda, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM showrooms over the next month until Eid. Ramadan is the busiest time of the season for automotive dealerships, but our students are up for the challenge and eager to get some hands-on experience in sales, communications, and customer service.
The internships are offered every summer in collaboration with Al Futtaim Education Foundation and give our students a chance to get real work experience, solving real tasks. The summer internships are an important part of our continuous focus on experiential learning at DIS.
“I decided to do this internship because of my interest in Toyota and cars. I feel like this is going to help me socialize a lot more and help me learn how to sell a car and learn communication skills… This is why I chose to apply for this internship.”
