Voice of Business hosting webinars in full swing for students
The critical circumstances created by a silent virus called COVID 19 has changed the face of this world. Like any other developing country, Bangladesh is also struggling to cope up with the situation & it has already caused a lot of damages such as loss of lives, disruption in economic welfare and education system. Even the acknowledgement of this ferocious virus in our country has been a challenging task until now.
To tackle this sensitive situation and to divert the students' mind from the anxiousness created by this pandemic Voice of Business, a student publication house & a business club of the Faculty of Business Studies in the University of Dhaka is taking innovative steps. For years VoB has been working for the students to enhance their understanding of real-life operations. With the mission of "Empowering the leader within", VoB acts as the spokesperson of the students of the faculty and bridges the gap between the corporate world and students. Hence it has come up with a new idea of arranging webinars to make this time more productive. VoB has successfully launched two webinars titled "The Job Market: Preparation and Prospects from student Life" and "The Job Market: Career Prospects in Human Resources" on 18th May and 7th June respectively. They used Google to meet as their platform.
Shahnila Rehnooma Ahmed, HR Business Partner-Corporate, British American Tobacco Bangladesh and Akib Azmine Amer, Acting recruitment lead-Bangladesh, Middle East & South Asia, British American Tobacco Bangladesh have conducted insightful webinars. The sapient discussants mainly talked about the job markets, preparation and prospects from student life, career prospect in Human Resources and other necessary skills regarding building a successful career. Shahnila Rehnooma shared meticulous facts on the struggle we'll face in the job market amid this pandemic state & tactics to explore your talents. She emphasized on acquiring different technical and soft skills. Then Mr. Akib Azmine's session mainly focused on job prospects in HR. He encouraged the students to carefully decide the career they want to pursue and learn only the relevant skills needed for that chosen field. Moreover, to encourage students he shared his experience as a human resource conductor. At the end of both of the sessions, there was a Q/A session where the respected conductors tried to solve the dilemmas of the participants regarding their job market preparation.
Voice of business got robust responses from the students which indicate their eagerness to use this time productively. The webinar series is basically about the job market. It will have more episodes in the future keeping in mind the welfare of the students. In this tough situation, it is very important for all to stay strong and positive. To keep students motivated and constructive, VoB has initiated creative projects every time. VoB considers itself lucky to be a medium of skill development for the students. The next webinar will be held on June 13 and the topic is " Supply Chain Management and Its career prospects". Md. Abdul Alim, Head of Functions, Unilever will conduct this session. The webinar is open for students from all over the country. For registration check out the Facebook page of Voice of Business.
