WITH the private sector advocating for local employment and providing opportunities to the younger generation as they strive to contribute to the country, yesterday saw the gathering of some of the fresh faces of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) as they are introduced to what awaits them after graduation.
As part of an initiative by the Faculty of Integrated Technologies (FIT) under the university, Year 1 and Year 2 students were provided with the opportunity to attend a career talk by telecommunication provider TelBru, represented by David Kay, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TelBru, and Innaci Dass, General Manager of Human Resources.
During the hour-long talk, students were provided with insight into TelBru’s own programmes in developing local human resource as they take the lead in reaching out to potential employees and training them into becoming the best in their field.
In an interview with the Bulletin, Pg Dr Mohammad Iskandar bin Pg Hj Petra, Dean of the FIT, explained that the invitation to TelBru was aimed at enlightening especially these young students as they ready themselves to commit to a major under FIT’s information-communication engineering course.
“This will help them in determining their career direction,” he said, thus making the decision process even easier especially with the appropriate knowledge to facilitate the path they can opt to take. It was also shared that the faculty has plans to invite more from both the government and private sector to speak with their students in the near future.
