First impressions during the initial meeting with future employers could be the determining factor especially when employers receive applications from several dozen jobseekers that possess the same skills and qualifications.

This was shared by imagine People Journey Manager (Training and Development) Javon Leong during the Work Readiness Programme hosted by Laksamana College of Business (LCB) on Friday.

Students were briefed on job readiness including how to ace interviews, CV reviews and sharing session as part of imagine’s initiative towards preparing graduates for Brunei’s competitive job market.

The programme, which was launched by LCB earlier this week, provided imagine with the opportunity to recognise talents suited to the telecommunications industry while empowering them with the skills and knowledge.

With imagine being at the forefront of transformation in the industry, the company’s expanding operations and continuous advancement depends heavily on investments in human capital. As such, imagine CEO Suzanna Suharju said institutions such as LCB play a vital role in grooming Bruneians to face 21st Century challenges and opportunities in contributing to Brunei Vision 2035.

“At imagine, we are always on the lookout for Bruneians who can align themselves with imagine’s core values. This means we require our imagineers to be brave and vibrant to venture into the unfamiliar and are curious enough to question the status quo and consider the possibilities of what’s next,” said Javon.
