A known writer placed it quite aptly “Think not of yourself as the architect of your career but as the sculptor. Expect to have to do a lot of chiseling, scraping and polishing.” This is exactly how UCB plays their fundamental role in churning out the talents of its students through career guidance. It is not only well planned but is also most effective in laying the foundations for progressing one’s career. This was the exact aim of Careers Day which was held inside the UCB campus on March 8, 2010 from 10am – 2pm.
Consecutively the 6th Career Day was an opportunity for students to talk one-on-one with potential representatives from high caliber corporate bodies i.e. Bahrain Development Bank, Arab Bank, Al Baraka Islamic Bank, Memac Ogilvy, Eventscom, Gulf Future Business, Exceed IT, Zain, ARIG, Gulf Marcom Group and Bahrain National Holding, to name a few. The representatives shared the information with students and guided them about specific careers, clarified the related questions and further provided them with details concerning immediate or forthcoming employment opportunities.
Students were satisfied about having learned the benefits of Career Day as this provided a platform & better insight of the market on both National and International level.
