The Commercial international Bank–Egypt (CIB) maintains its firm commitment towards the development of Egyptian youth across different fields, the most important of which is to support the special competences and skills of university students and fresh graduates to be prepared for the labor market.

The new initiative includes different activities managed by the Recruitment and Selection Department at CIB-Egypt, in cooperation with public and private universities and organizations, dedicating a specialized team to organize free workshops and sessions at universities, provide internships and participate in various employment fairs in addition to attending the graduation ceremonies in some universities where CIB Professionals is present to congratulate the students and receive their CVs on the same day for future hiring opportunities.
During the first quarter of this year, the Bank organized 14 sessions under the theme of “How to Write your CV and Be Prepared for an Interview”, which aim to strengthen the capabilities of young calibers to meet the requirements of the labor market, while granting them all information and experience needed in order to support their first steps in their career path. Adding to this is the creation of a pool of talented candidates for CIB’s hiring opportunities.
During these sessions, the Bank’s specialized team provided tips and guidelines for students about the proper, professional writing techniques to create a good resume, in addition to the list of Dos and Don’ts for the job interviews and how to get well prepared in order to capitalize on the chances of winning a job opportunity.
