Commercial Bank has participated for the second time this year in the ‘Career Village Event’ organised by Qatar Career Development Centre, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education.
Bringing together representatives of leading organisations and companies in Qatar, the initiative mainly targets high school students and seeks to familiarise them with the dynamics and challenges of Qatar’s labour market.
Commercial Bank set up a branch mock-up that featured a customer service desk, teller desk, and other services found at the bank, allowing young students to experience the main daily operations and to acquire a better and more comprehensive understanding of the bank’s cutting-edge technologies.
Assisted by bank employees, students were encouraged to put in good use their communication and teamwork skills by working in a customer service scenario. Not only were they encouraged to participate in the event, but the students were also invited to enrol in the bank’s upcoming annual ‘Young Bankers’ Internship Programme, which is part of the bank’s commitment to help the next generation develop skills need to succeed in their future careers.
Chief human capital officer Sheikh Jassim Saud al-Thani said, “Building our future line comes early; to experience is the new way to grow and learn. At Commercial Bank, we support Qatari students in every way possible. We are honoured to take part in the Career Village exhibition in an attempt to pave the way for students to make quality decisions as they make the first step in their future career paths.”
Haya al-Hajri, National Talent Development manager, said, “Seeing young motivated students eager to learn and to explore the professional world motivates us in return to renew our commitment towards them by implementing internship programmes, such as Young Bankers, allowing them to discover more about the banking sector through first-hand experience and gain work experience at the same time.”
