Alba imparts job insight to inJAz students
Manama, December 21, 2011
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, recently gave 32 students from inJAz Bahrain’s Shadow Programme insights on jobs in the various departments of the factory.
The student delegation was received by Alba’s Human Resources manager, Abdul Rahman Mohd Janahi and given a brief presentation on the scope of the Job Shadow Programme launched by inJAz Bahrain, which was established to provide young people with a business and economic education.
Alba is one of seven prominent companies in Bahrain partnering with inJAz Bahrain for the Job Shadow Programme.
It is aimed at providing students with opportunities to grasp fundamental business concepts such as, competition, markets, investment, costs, benefits, incentives, specialisation and income.
Apart from dedicated classroom learning sessions, students are also exposed to the workplace environment through day-long visits to pre-selected companies.
“One of the primary benefits of inJAz Bahrain’s Job Shadow Programme is to enable young students to get a taste of the work environment by watching their mentors at work and listening to what they have to share about the work they do,” said Alba’s chief executive Laurent Schmitt.
“This hands-on approach will provide these young students with a better insight on how to prepare themselves for the work environment. Alba is proud to support such initiatives that enable young Bahrainis to embrace their chosen careers with the necessary skills to realise their potential and emerge successful,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
