Qatar Islamic Bank issued the following announcement on March 6.
Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), Qatar’s leading Islamic Bank, is currently participating at the 12th edition of Qatar University (QU) Career Fair, which commenced yesterday and continues until 8 March 2018. The annual career fair is organized by QU Career Center as part of the university's efforts to enrich and diversify the experience of its students and graduates and connect them with the world of business.

For many years, the Bank has been attracting graduates and young Qatari talents for jobs in its various business units, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. The Board of Directors and the Executive Management aligned the Bank's business strategies with human resources to help prepare future financial experts who can contribute to the development of the banking industry in Qatar."
He added: "QIB's strategy of investment in local talents proved to be a success over the past few years, as we managed to recruit a large number of Qataris, particularly university graduates. We will continue to pursue this strategy and to develop the skills of our Qatari employees through constant training and professional development."
Al Mesalam noted that QIB has a special relationship with QU, with the Bank welcoming a group of students from the university's College of Business and Economics every summer for training. "The career fair provides a good opportunity to meet students, familiarize them with our banking activities, and provide them with professional advice to serve the objectives of the banking sector and our strategy of building a national workforhce capable of leading the Bank's business today and in the future," he concluded.
