Qatar Career Development Centre (QCDC) is continuing to provide career and academic guidance programmes virtually, giving students the opportunity to learn about the requirements of different professions from the safety of their homes, in light of the precautionary restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In this context, QCDC is organising a new online edition of “My Career - My Future” programme for this year.
Targeting high school students, the programme consists of six interviews streamed live via Instagram, with the participation of people from different professions and disciplines. During the sessions, each guest will elaborate on their profession and academic background before taking questions from participating students.
Interviews will be streamed live via Instagram every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday until June 23 at 1pm. Participation can be done through QCDC’s official Instagram account, @QCDCQatar.
Shaheen Hamad al-Sulaiti, senior career programmes and services officer, QCDC, said, “In this programme, we focus on the professions in which the country needs to increase the number of employees in the future. We therefore host people from various professions, specialisations, and sectors – such as media, health, energy, industry, social work, and technology entrepreneurship. We hope that the interviews encourage students to explore these specialisations and pursue them to fill future vacancies in Qatar.”
From the media field, interviewees are director, Shoug Shaheen and broadcaster and reporter Abdulrahman Saleh al-Ashqar, from Al-Kass Sports Channels. The programme will also host resident doctor in the Department of Internal Medicine at McGill University, Dr Abdulrahman al-Abdulmalik, to talk about his experience in the medical field. Additionally, on the energy and industry sector, Ghaffan Faraj al-Abdullah will share with the students his experience as a Safety and Health Officer at Qatargas, and Malika al-Shraim, head of Public Relations and Communications at Katara Cultural Village, will tackle business management in the tourism sector. Regarding the field of social work, Nayef al-Shahrani will talk about his experience as the head of the TAMM Volunteer Network programme. The technology entrepreneurship sector will be addressed by Saleh al-Safran, Co-founder and chief executive officer, Subol Products Design, and Abdulrahman Saleh Khamis, founder and CEO, Thakaa Technologies.
