|Deer & Dear hosted a group of 4 Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) students for an internship opportunity.
Deer & Dear is a Kuwaiti clothing line with stores all around the country that was founded in 2009. Deer & Dear has been working with ACK and supporting its students since 2017.
These students were given practical hands-on experience with the day-to-day activities associated with maintaining a retail store. They were trained in administrative aspects such as merchandizing, packaging and pricing. Students also had the opportunity to work with helping customers to develop their necessary interpersonal skills for retail.
The experience helped ACK’s marketing students as they were intentionally put in retail marketing stores. Participating students described the experience as a great opportunity to understand the inner-workings of retail marketing.
ACK strives to increase opportunities for students to take part in vocational training in order to develop their professional skills. It offers many opportunities for students in different majors to get hands-on practice in their field before they graduate.
