Al khaliji sponsors The Gulf English School’s annual career fair

Doha, Qatar – 17th March 2016 – Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) Q.S.C, Qatar’s next generation bank, has sponsored The Gulf English School’s annual career fair in mid March, as part of its continuous drive to empower Qatari talents and youth in their transition from academia to career life.

The Gulf English School’s annual career fairs bring together Qatar’s leading and established public and private sector institutions, both local and global, offering them the opportunity to showcase their career advancement opportunities, vacancies and businesses to prominent Qatari talents.

The event serves as a networking and knowledge exchange platform, whereby local competencies learn about changing job market dynamics across Qatar’s key growth sectors, explore career choices, and connect with the country’s leading players and organizations for future employment opportunities. In a large-scale mission under the motto “For the youth, with the youth and by the youth”, the school’s 2016 career fair draws the participation of several schools in Qatar, opening doors for all students to connect with prospect employers and the country’s leading companies. Visitors from 10 schools across Qatar from both the private and independent sectors, attended the event.

The sponsorship of The Gulf English School’s annual career fair falls under al khaliji’s continuous collaborative efforts with the country’s leading academic institutions, bridging the gap between the education field and the sector’s job market. As part of these collaborative efforts, the bank holds regular financial literacy and business education sessions in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University Qatar; in February, al khaliji partnered with Carnegie Mellon University for Tajer, a financial markets literacy and education session aimed at secondary students and fresh graduates, offering them in-depth understanding of financial markets and systems.
