BENEFIT Takes Part in Building Future IT leaders of Bahrain

BENEFIT has collaborated with ThinkSmart for a special project aimed towards building the future IT leaders of Bahrain. The program, known as Forsati, is an initiative in partnership with Microsoft, and aims towards skilling top Bahraini graduates and preparing them for the jobs of tomorrow.

Selected Bahraini graduates joining #TeamBENEFIT will be undergoing Microsoft’s job-role training and professional certifications, aligned with the industry and technical roles and requirements. Students will also be provided with career coaching and mentoring, ultimately improving their employability chances for emerging jobs such as Fintech Analyst, AI Engineers, Data Scientist, Software Developers and Solution Architect. Organizations such as BENEFIT, will have complete access to the pool of talent during the entire duration of the program.
