Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, is holding its month-long Career Awareness Campaign until the end of October.
The campaign is one of the initiatives of Bedaya’s Career Development Department aimed at raising awareness among all segments of the Qatari society about the importance of career development through various activities carried out by Bedaya Centre this month.
The Career Awareness Campaign is divided into several main criteria such as ‘Know yourself’, ‘Explore your career options’, ‘Act on your decision’, ‘Take a decision’, and ‘Evaluate your decision’.
It also features a creative video competition among participants, which aims to showcase diverse careers and tasks that have a positive impact on the local economy. It will be displayed at the end of the campaign and presented to His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.
Bedaya Centre said the objective of the campaign is to spread awareness about the concept of career development and inspire the target audience from students and all segments of the local society into discovering various careers in Qatar.
Further, the campaign informs parents about their role and influence on their children’s future careers, and thereby gives opportunity for children to try different career tasks.
Bedaya Centre general manager Reem al-Suwaidi said, “Our constant efforts to involve the younger generation come within the framework of Qatar’s human capital development, which is a key pillar in the development of the national economy.”
She said the Career Awareness Campaign is a step forward in helping students and the different sectors of the local community to take the right career calls that match with their personalities and expectations.
“We seek to enrich the Qatari labour market with promising youth capable of taking responsibility and raising the flag of our country especially in light of the unjust siege on our beloved country,” she added.
Bedaya Centre campaign organiser Khalid al-Meresy said, “We achieved great success with the career awareness campaign we organised last year as it helped the audience meet key people from different sectors from the local market.”
Al-Meresy said the previous edition of the campaign helped develop the skills, knowledge, and experience of the participants. It also helped develop a clear understanding of values, norms, and standards adopted by institutions and companies in the country.
“The youth also had the chance to get to know closely people who had a unique experience in various fields and achieved impressive successes until they reached what they are now,” al-Meresy added.
The third week of the campaign, scheduled to take place from today till October 26, will witness career development workshops, which are designed to help the audience understand how to properly make professional decisions and how to implement them.
The last week will witness a seminar on the needs of the local economy due to the unjust blockade imposed on the country, and Qatar National Vision 2030. It will also have the closing ceremony and presentation for the results of the video competition.
