Manama, January 28, 2014
Bahraini job seekers will now have an edge at interviews thanks to a seminar hosted recently by Jobs4Bahrainis.com (J4B), the online employment and careers service powered by Tamkeen, the kingdom’s labour fund.
The Interview for Success seminar, run in conjunction with experts from leading UK training and development organisation MSB Consultancy, featured quizzes, role playing workshops and in-depth lectures on CV writing, interview tips and ‘Do’s and Don’ts’.
A total of 45 Bahraini job seekers participated in the highly interactive seminar at the Kempinski Hotel.
Hussain Ali, J4B project manager said: “The seminar was notable for the dynamic engagement between the Bahraini participants and the MSB team, whose experts were able to answer the many questions posed by the job seekers. We look forward to working with MSB on future initiatives to give Bahraini job candidates greater competitive advantage in the jobs market.”
Mohamed Ahmadi, projects coordinator from Tamkeen’s Human Capital Development unit, said: “Seminars such as this are vital in equipping Bahrainis with the requisite skills in an increasingly competitive world. Tamkeen welcomes the international approach taken by MSB in inspiring our job seekers to improve their career credentials.”
Don Porter CBE, MSB Consultancy’s managing director said: “MSB’s workshop on best practice recruitment techniques demonstrated the clear benefits of our approach to practical, interactive learning. Participants left the workshop with greater confidence to prepare and succeed in their career. It was a great privilege for the MSB team to meet so many talented and ambitious Bahrainis and we look forward to working with Jobs4Bahrainis and Tamkeen in the future.”
