‘Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow’, this should be the motivation for every graduate starting his or her career path. Finding that path and following it can greatly depend on the organization that will help you grow. Throughout the past three years, the National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has recruited more than 1000 young Kuwaitis, of both genders, as part of its commitment to providing distinctive career opportunities to ambitious young Kuwaitis. Furthermore, more than 1000 NBK employees are annually enrolled in professional training and development programs especially designed for NBK staff provided by world-renowned institutions including the American University of Beirut and Ernst and Young.
The first milestone in the career of every NBK employee is the NBK Academy. Here are the thoughts of NBK’s future managers, executives and employees.
Why did they join NBK?
