Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited in Partnership with the University of Guyana launches Career Coach

It is compound knowledge and individual development that prepares us for a golden destiny.
The corporate world has grown even more competitive and it takes more than academic qualifications to enter and advance in today’s workforce, therefore it is vital for one to be well rounded in order to project effective individual marketing for the working environment.

Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited has realized the need to empower our youth to excel in the workforce. Under The Power to Make a Difference, the Bank has partnered with the University of Guyana to Launch Career Coach.

Career Coach is a two- day workshop, which aimed to provide the students of the University of Guyana with guidelines on qualities the will help ensure their success in the world of work. The workshop comprised four key areas; Your Professional Image, Grooming and Decorum, Preparing your Resume and Preparing for Interviews. Students were given the opportunity to draw from a dynamic panel of local professionals which included Dr. Paloma Mohamed- Lecturer, University of Guyana; Ms. Joyce Sinclair AA; Mrs. Rosamund Addo and Mrs. Shrimanie Mendonca – Manager’s Assistant, Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited who aptly imparted sound advice and guidelines that can be applied to any career of choice.

The final day of the intense and edifying exercise saw ten lucky students who were selected at a drawing, experience mock interviews in which they were able to apply the knowledge received and gain further coaching for the career experience as well.
Career Coach coincidentally ushers in the Open Career Fair scheduled for Friday, 15 at the University’s Campus, of which the Bank will also participate.
