On October 24th, 2022, East West University Business Club (EWUBC) held its flagship event – “Career Clinic 2022”, powered by ShareTrip. The program was organized to address the ever-growing difficulties graduates face when coming up with a clear road map for their desired careers due to a lack of industry knowledge and poor job preparation.
Career Clinic 2022 was curated to give students first-hand experience of how the different industries of Bangladesh operate. The first two segments of the event were a CV and Cover Letter writing workshop, which was then followed by a panel discussion round, and a Q/A session. The seminar was conducted by the keynote speaker of the event – Mr. GM Kamrul Hassan, former CEO of Igloo and Sindabad.com. He provided valuable insights into all of the different industries in Bangladesh and helped participants learn how each of them works. Furthermore, the resume writing workshop was coordinated by Mr. Abu Usuf Md Rashedul Amin, General Manager of Employer Branding at Bkash. And all of the discussions were facilitated by Dr. MD Abdul Momen, Associate Professor of East West University.
The panel discussion round featured several distinguished industry veterans, which included the likes of Rajshekhar Debnath (CFO of Finance & HR Division, RedDot Digital Limited), Bishwajit Das (Sales Director, Reckitt Benkiser BD), Sarifuddin Nawroz (Head of Business-Life Essentials, Unilever Bangladesh Limited), Sanjoy Kumar Das (Head of Organization Development and HR Strategy, City Bank), Sayeda Tahya Hossain (HR Director, Perfetti Van Melle Bangladesh), Sharmin Rahman (Acting Head of Marketing, Grameenphone), Rezwan Ullah Khan (Senior Marketing Manager, Akij Group Ltd), and Jihad Bin Tahzeeb (Account Director, Grey Advertising Bangladesh Limited). Throughout the session, the panelists talked about all the different issues fresh graduates and recruiters face in the job market, which included topics like the value of extracurricular activities, changes in the corporate sector, adjusting to evolving industries, and pursuing careers overseas.
The last stage of the event was held on October 29th, 2022, where students participated in a CV screening round and interview session. During this stage, several HR heads and professionals from some of the leading companies in the country provided constructive feedback on the participant’s resume writing and interview skills so that they could improve upon them in the future.
As one of the most prestigious business clubs in Bangladesh, EWUBC is dedicated to assisting students in developing their entrepreneurial and leadership skills. And throughout the club’s 20-year journey, they have helped mold several young talents to become not only competent candidates but also the leaders of tomorrow.
