Main Sponsor of the conference "Introduction to Employment"
The Conference titled “Introduction to Employment” was organised for the 3rd consecutive year with the practical support of the Bank of Cyprus.
The Conference was open to final year university, college and tertiary education students as well as post graduate students, parents and young people in search of employment. Thanks to its highly interesting lectures and interventions, the Conference contributed to providing information to young people, aspiring to become a valuable tool of knowledge on matters of vocational orientation and conduct in the prevailing labour market conditions.
In the framework of the Conference, professionals from different business areas discussed matters of great concern for young people such as “which profession is best suited to your character and temperament”, “how to get a job that interests you” and “how to best present yourself through your CV”. Matters relating to searching for work through the internet and the social media were also discussed and different professions were presented.
Opening addresses were made by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance, Mr. Georgios Papageorgiou, and the General Manager of Human Resources of the Bank of Cyprus, Mr. George Christodoulides. Ms Aigli Christofidou, our Bank’s Director of Human Resources focused on the creation of a successful career and mentioned ways and actions for young employees to climb up in the hierarchy of their working environment and become established professionals. She also presented ways in which young individuals can identify those features that will make them stand out in the labour market.
The sponsorship of the “Introduction to Employment” Conference falls within the broader framework of similar initiatives undertaken by the Bank of Cyprus with the aim of supporting education, youth and our country in general.
The highly successful Conference was organised at the Head Offices of the Bank of Cyprus in Agia Paraskevi, in Nicosia, attracting mostly young people, who were also the target audience.
