Supporting Mrs. Al Hashemi at the opening ceremony were Batelco Bahrain General Manager Human Resources & Corporate Services Suhaila Alnowakhda and a number of Batelco officials. The three day event was officially opened by H.E Dr. Majid bin Ali Al Noaimi, the Minister of Education and UoB President Dr. Riyadh Hamza who visited the Batelco stand to meet Mrs Al Hashemi and her team, prior to touring the exhibition.
As Platinum sponsor of Career Day for 2016, this makes it the 12th year that Batelco has been the event’s main sponsor. This sponsorship is central to Batelco’s commitment to support education in the Kingdom. Career Day is an ideal opportunity for university students to learn about job opportunities in the telecommunications sector and labour market in general. Batelco industry experts were available at the Batelco stand to answer questions and give advice based on their years of experience in their respective fields.
Mrs. Al Hashemi expressed Batelco’s pleasure in supporting the Career Day event which is an iconic event on the Bahrain calendar for students and educators.
“Such events provide the perfect opportunity for university students to find out more about careers in the telecommunications industry as well as the wider job market. The youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. Education, knowledge and sound advice will provide invaluable tools to help them face the challenges that lie ahead. The UoB, in organising events such as these, is helping to build a better future for Bahraini generations to come,” Mrs. Al Hashemi added.
