Bank of Beirut BootCamp: the First Step Towards Professional Success
Posted on 03/07/2017

It is said that “If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.” Believing that all students deserve to have equal opportunities, our BootCamp workshop is an open door towards a successful future career.

As part of our #BoBEmpowersYouth program, we organized BootCamp’s 15th edition in collaboration with AMIDEAST. It aims at equipping graduates-to-be with the communication and professional skills they need to competently explore the workplace.

Students aged from 18 to 25 years old have the chance to further learn about various topics such as presentations, job interviews, public speaking etc. Time management, networking, and teamwork skills are also developed as critical competencies valued by employers in all sectors.

The workshop is spread over 5 consecutive Saturdays, during which students interact with dynamic trainers and guest speakers from a diverse range of private, public and civic sector organizations. By networking with leaders of different companies, BootCamp students increase their chances of landing interesting internships and job opportunities.

As we aim not only to train students but to inspire them as well, Sami Shami, iFreestyle CEO and a BootCamp graduate, shared his experience with this year’s participants. Check out what he had to say in the above video!
