Guests from different professions and disciplines will share their experiences with high school students

Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC) continues 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 due to COVID-19.

The new online edition of My Career – My Future programme organised by QCDC, consists of six interviews streamed live via Instagram, with the participation of people from different professions and disciplines. Targeting high school students, each guest in the sessions will elaborate on their profession and academic background before taking questions from participating students.

QCDC Senior Career Programs and Services Officer Shaheen Hamad Al Sulaiti said that in the programme, they focus on professions the country needs.

We 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.

Included among the interviewees are Al Kass Sports Channels Director Shoug Shaheen and broadcaster/reporter Abdulrahman Saleh al Ashqar; McGill University resident doctor Dr Abdulrahman Al Abdulmalik; Qatargas Safety and Health Officer Ghaffan Faraj Al Abdullah; Katara Cultural Village Head of PR and Communications Malika Al Shraim; Nama‘s Head of the TAMM Volunteer Network programme Nayef Al Shahrani; Subol Products Design co-founder and CEO Saleh Al-Safran; and Thakaa Technologies founder and CEO Abdulrahman Saleh Khamis.

Al Sulaiti explained that they introduce students to the actual experience of speakers from various professional fields, and this enables them to discover the professions, learn about the requirements and correct any misconceptions they may have about them. Students will also discover the nature of these professions by listening to the personal experiences of guest speakers and ask them questions.

Interviews will be streamed live via Instagram every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until 23 June at 1 pm. Participants can join through QCDC’s official Instagram account, @QCDCQatar.
