Kuwait: As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting young local talents and students, Kuwait International Bank (KIB) sponsored the Gulf University of Science and Technology (GUST) Career Fair, which was held at the GUST Mishref campus. The career fair aimed at connecting newly graduated students and those expected to graduate with prospective employers and potential career opportunities.
During the fair, KIB was represented by a team from its Human Resources Department at its dedicated booth. The team introduced students to the nature of working at a bank and advised them on how they can begin their professional career at KIB. Additionally, the career fair provided a broad range of career advice geared toward recent graduates, to help guide them through the oft-complicated process of choosing suitable future careers.
KIB’s participation in this event reflects the Bank’s firm belief in the importance of supporting youth and newly gradated students by providing them with employment opportunities that match their career goals, particularly within the banking sector. This also comes in line with the Bank’s standout financial literacy program, which focuses on strengthening financial awareness and inclusion amongst youth and attracting national talents to the banking sector.
Within this context, KIB has always been considered a paragon of supporting youth and promoting their career development. Accordingly, the Bank always strives to participate in various career fairs, which serve as an excellent opportunity to introduce students to the Bank and its internal culture – given that one of KIB’s central tenets has always been providing the right environment to attract the right candidates to the right job. The Bank also heavily invests in its employees to provide ongoing support for their career aspirations and professional development.
It is worth noting that KIB remains dedicated to strengthening its leadership role amongst the top Islamic banks in Kuwait through opening its doors and attracting young local talents and providing them with employment opportunities that nature their skills and capabilities. As a core component of its corporate and social philosophy, KIB has always believed that youth are the foundation on which we can build a brighter, more successful future for the nation.
