The Career Day, which is attended by Qatari high school and university graduates and experienced professionals, includes an introduction to the various job opportunities available to the youth in the Bank’s various departments and divisions, as well as the banking and financial sector. It also includes career discussions with the graduates to help them understand their future development options, to help them build a bright future.

In addition to the career options and discussions, the event also provides the graduates with language training and specialized banking courses via QNB’s dedicated Learning & Development Center in Doha, as well as introducing the attendees to the various scholarships offered by Qatar’s top universities.

Commenting on the important event, Yousef Al-Othman, GM - Group Human Capital, said: “We at QNB Group are pleased to organize this Career Day, in which we can introduce our Qatari youth to the various opportunities available to them in our Group. We are also pleased to educate them about our career training courses provided by our Learning and Development Center to help nurture their professional development and contribute in the cultivation of these young national talents and their skills, so that they may build a bright future for themselves and for our State of Qatar.”
