Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC), founded by Qatar Foundation (QF), has announced the opening of registration for the fifth edition of “My Career-My Future” programme for 2023.
The programme, held in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and the Civil Service and Government Development Bureau, aims to provide high school students (10th, 11th, and 12th grades) in Qatar with an opportunity to experience real work environments across various sectors in the country, including medicine, aviation, media, filmmaking, banking, social work, and education, to help guide them towards finding their future careers and develop their potential areas of interest.
The programme will take place over five days from June 11 to 15, from 8am to 2pm, with activities starting at Multaqa (Education City Student Center).
Saad Al Kharji, Career Programs and Services Manager at QCDC, expressed his expectations for the programme’s fifth edition, saying: “The programme’s past success and ability to attract hundreds of young people annually has established it as a staple in our fixed annual programmes. Its unique approach allows participants to gain valuable experience in various important labour sectors, helping them to acquire essential knowledge and make informed decisions about their future careers and education. Additionally, it encourages students to explore their professional aspirations and work towards achieving their goals.”
Interested students can register for the programme through https://bit.ly/3Bhudme or visit QCDC’s website: qcdc.org.qa, and choose the institutions they wish to join. After completing the registration process, participants will receive a confirmation email and be directed to the designated payment page for a fee of QR350.
Students who successfully complete the programme will receive participation certificates indicating the number of hours they spent in the participating institutions. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to explore Qatar’s diverse universities during the closing ceremony, where representatives from these universities will showcase their academic programmes in Qatar, application requirements, and admission criteria.
