BRAC Bank, in association with Jahanginagar University Career Club, has organized a CAREERtalk with the students sensitizing on their career planning.
It came on a virtual platform with around 150 students from the Faculty of Business Studies (FBS), the Institute of Business Administration (IBA-JU), and other disciplines.
Dr. KM Zahidul Islam, Professor and Director of IBA-JU, Dr. Mohammad Alamgir Kabir, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Statistics, and Dr. Md Sawkat Hossain, Associate Professor and Chairman of the Department of Finance and Banking, were present to encourage the students.
Nazmur Rahim, Head of Alternate Banking Channels of BRAC Bank and an alumnus of the IBA-JU, conducted the session and provided his suggestions to the students on career planning.
He said: "Academic result is important, but it cannot be the only yardstick of evaluating a job candidate. At BRAC Bank, we rather look into the versatility and attitude among the fertile minds while hiring people. We look for the right."
The event concluded with a Q&A session where students sought opinions on choosing a career path, the importance of CGPA plus extra-curricular activities for the banking industry, and career opportunities as a bank employee.
Among others, JU alumni from BRAC Bank, Reza Hyder, Head of Relationship Unit 2; Emdadul Haque, Regional Head, Khulna and Dhaka North East Region; as well as BRAC Bank's Head of HR, Akhteruddin Mahmood; and Head of Talent Acquisition and Employer Branding Rishad Hossain, were also present at the CAREERtalk programme, says a press release.
