Pics below taken during the launching ceremony of the BICT Career Day which is being held at the International Convention Centre in Berakas. Present as the guest of honour was Dato Seri Paduka Eussoff Agaki Hj Ismail, the Deputy Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office.
As I wrote in my CNET Asia piece:
…its a one-stop event where job seekers can speak to potential employers, get feedback on the certifications they require, then approach training institutions to check on the cost involved. It doesn’t end there though.
These job-seekers, having been furnished with these two key pieces of information, can then approach the AiTi booth. AiTi, in an effort to address the lack of local ICT capacity currently has a program which subsidizes these job seekers in their selected certification courses by up to 80 percent!
There we have it, a completed cycle all done under one roof. I say it’s about time! Hats off to IFB for organizing such an event for the first time here in Brunei Darussalam.
The response has been phenomenal such that by the end of this day, it will have exceeded a thousand visitors! Not quite consumer fair numbers, but then, this is a niche event and for its niche, the figure is nothing short of OUTSTANDING. More about the event here, here, here, and here.
