The Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center’s (BYCL) Office of Professional Development (OPD)—which is supported by the Aga Khan Foundation Bangladesh and the Rizwan Adatia Foundation—hosted its third BYLC Career Fair at Ismaili Jamatkhana and Centre in Dhaka. 

The fair, held on Thursday, convened over 300 BYLC graduates and 22 leading private and nonprofit-sector employers, who are looking to recruit talented youths for entry-level jobs.

While inaugurating the event, the chief guest, State Minister at the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources, Nasrul Hamid said: “Not only is BYLC doing a remarkable job of instilling in youth critical thinking and leadership skills, it is also creating economic opportunities by facilitating important connections between employers and job-seekers.” 

Speaking at the opening ceremony, BYLC President Ejaj Ahmad said: “Using a three-pronged approach—professional skills development training, placement opportunities, and online professional matchmaking and learning services—the OPD contributes to improving the livelihood of youths who have already received leadership education at BYLC.”

Human resources representatives from participating organizations spoke to BYLC graduates throughout the day, assessed their resumes, and took on-the-spot interviews of suitable candidates. 

The fair also featured two panels on tackling youth unemployment and bridging gaps between supply of, and demand for, skills.

The companies at the BYLC Career Fair included: Banglalink, Grameenphone, Renata Limited, Shohoz, PRAN-RFL Group, JAAGO Foundation, Mutual Trust Bank Limited, Dhaka Bank Limited, Aamra Technologies Limited, Green Delta Insurance, BRAC, KAZI IT, ActionAid Bangladesh, Sajida Foundation, Amann Bangladesh, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Mohammadi Group, LankaBangla Finance, Cosmos Group, United News Bangladesh, mPower Social Enterprises Limited, and Reckitt Benckiser Bangladesh Limited.
