J4B career skills program draws good response
Manama, May 9, 2011
A diverse group of Bahrainis aged from 18 to their mid-thirties last week attended the second of six career skills seminars organised by Jobs4Bahrainis.com, the first private sector initiative dedicated exclusively to getting more nationals into the workforce.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com is a joint venture between Gulf Connexions, one of the leading recruitment companies in the region, and Al Hilal Group, the kingdom’s leading publishing and marketing organisation.
The seminar entitled 'Developing Success at Interviews,' was conducted recently at the Bahrain Conference Centre, Crowne Plaza Hotel.
It is part of Jobs4Bahrainis.com’s ‘Essential Employment Skills for Success’ programme, the core objective of which is to showcase the different skills sets an individual needs to be successful in either their job search or work environment.
Matt Weldon, director of Banking and Financial Services at Gulf Connexions, spoke to participants about job hunting and interview techniques.
The seminar attracted several new participants keen to gain a competitive edge in the jobs market, including a mother with three children, working professionals as well as fresh graduates and also the participants of the first seminar held in February.
The next seminar will discuss 'Essential Teamwork and Motivation.' It is open to all Bahraini nationals on a first come, first served basis. Registration can be made in advance by calling 17565359.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com business development manager Ali Daylami said: 'After the recent events in the Kingdom, we are more committed than ever to equip Bahraini nationals with vital careers-related skills and knowledge.'
'We are heartened to see so many young Bahrainis embracing our initiative, interacting enthusiastically with the trainer and asking key questions relevant to current jobs market.'
'We are also very grateful to Crowne Plaza for their continued support in providing an outstanding venue for the seminars,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
