Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC), a member of Qatar Foundation, recently launched the 11th edition of its Career Guide magazine, which aims to tackle challenges posed by COVID-19, within the education sector and labour market, and help young people plan for a post-pandemic future.
The new issue of the Career Guide looks closely at the future of the educational process, expectations and lessons learned from the global pandemic, which has forced most countries to apply strict precautionary measures, suspend in-person classes in schools and universities, and pivot to e-learning.
Through interviews with an exclusive group of experts in human resources, economics and futurology, the 11th edition discusses the future of work in light of the pandemic and post-pandemic effects.
The challenges and solutions facing the education sector in Qatar are the focus of a discussion with Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education HE Dr Ibrahim bin Saleh Al Nuaimi, where he explains the ministry’s ongoing efforts to help the sector overcome the COVID-19 crisis.
An interview with Sheikha Latifa Khalid Al Thani, Education Sector Executive at Microsoft Qatar, about her career and her inspiring journey as the first Qatari woman to work at the global tech giant, is an opportunity for the youth to learn from her experiences.
In honour of the tremendous efforts the nation’s healthcare workers have exerted during the COVID-19 crisis, the magazine’s Exploring Careers section is dedicated to highlighting a variety of medical professions, introducing young people to the details of each position and the skills required.
QCDC Director Abdulla Al Mansoori explains why the Career Guide has been a vital resource for more than a decade, saying: “QCDC strives to make career guidance the best means to help young people achieve their professional and practical aspirations, by appropriately guiding skills and potentials in a manner that serves Qatar’s future aspirations. Therefore, we focus our efforts on reaching all community groups, especially students and youth, through various activities and events that help them achieve a better understanding of career guidance.”
Apart from Career Guide magazine, QCDC issues a wide range of other specialised publications. In February 2020, QCDC career guidance experts released the Career Q&A for Graduates and Job Seekers, tackling the most frequently asked career questions to help them take practical steps in their career path.
