56 final year students from the Al Naseem International School in Bahrain were treated to a special workshop and virtual tour of the Ebrahim K. Kanoo Marketing and Communications Department as part of INJAZ Bahrain’s informative Job Shadow program.
Volunteers from the department’s various functions hosted the one-day workshop and mentorship program where the students were briefed on the creative campaigns and exciting events behind some of the kingdom’s most well-known automotive brands. The students spent the day engaging with the volunteers and learning about what happens behind-the-scenes to support the company’s impressive portfolio of 14 passenger and commercial automotive brands as well as the various automotive support and other industrial subsidiaries of one of Bahrain’s largest family businesses.
Ebrahim K. Kanoo Managing Director, Mr. Talal F. Kanoo highlighted the importance of enlightening students about the different departments and roles within the company, “At Ebrahim K. Kanoo, we take great pride in our dynamic and talented workforce and invest in their careers in order to continually stay ahead of the trends and ensure a great customer experience at every level. Participating in INJAZ Bahrain’s various educational programs gives us a chance to showcase these talents to the youth in the hope that they expand their career ambitions and aspirations, and know that the country is truly progressive and their potential in Bahrain is limitless.”
Ebrahim K. Kanoo previously hosted the first Virtual Job Shadow program at the expansive Spare Parts department of the company, where students had the unique opportunity to view the company’s state-of-the-art inventory, customer service, storage and warehousing systems.
