In an effort to donate their time for a good cause, SEDCO Holding employees delivered career sessions for finance, accounting, and IT management systems students from King Abdulaziz University to prepare them for the job market.
During the sessions, 22 students met with four SEDCO specialized consultants in finance, investment, internal audit, and information security. The sessions offered the participants a deeper understanding of various subjects in their areas of study.
Dr. Faisal Al Nouri, Head of the Finance Department in the Faculty of Economics and Administration at King Abdulaziz University, praised the efforts of SEDCO Holding in hosting the students and answering inquiries: “The sessions helped equip the students with practical skills and methods that can prepare them for the job market, which is one of the university’s strategic objectives.”
Several students expressed their appreciation to SEDCO Holding for this opportunity, confirming that the enriching discussions with the company’s experts helped them gain new and interesting insights on different topics in their areas of study. “We benefited greatly from the discussion on financial and technical subjects, in addition to learning some important skills required for professional excellence,” said Mohammed Qari, one of the students.
Haneen Abu Heital, another student, thanked SEDCO for its efforts. “The lecturers motivated us to ask more questions and learn as much as possible from their practical expertise,” she said. Bayan Mubarak, another participant, noted that the visit confirmed the relationship between “SEDCO’s great reputation in the finance sector and the efficiency of its ambitious, hard-working, and professional employees.”
