In line with its strategic initiatives for a brighter community, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, BBK, ends its summer training program for the year 2010 which ran for two consecutive months commencing on the 1st of July.
This yearly practice which has been conducted by the Bank for several years now benefits a large number of university students offering a unique opportunity to spend their summer holidays productively, learn and develop new skills as well as gain experience in different work roles in the real corporate world. They apply their class room learning in real work situations, interact with customers and Bank employees as well as gain valuable insight and understanding that can not possibly be achieved in a formal university setting. The program also offers summer internship opportunities to the children of the Banks staff which help them bond better with the organization that their parents work for. As a token of appreciation, the Bank also offers a small stipend to all trainees.
This year, as in the previous years, BBK received a large number of applications and through a rigorous selection process, the Bank selected 29 trainees from across the Kingdom studying in various private and overseas universities. The selected trainees have been distributed to different departments based on their specializations and have been placed under the guidance and supervision of specific officials who mentored and guided them during the internship period.
