Al-Dileela – Your Career Navigator

8:00 am - 8:00 pm Online

 

Introduction

Drawing on the rich heritage of the Qatari and Gulf cultures, the program derives its name from the Arabic word al-dileela (الدليلة), which signifies a trusted person with an innate understanding of terrains and paths and has the ability to lead others toward their destinations, whether on land or at sea. This name aptly emphasizes Qatar Career Development Center’s (QCDC) commitment to serving as a guide and mentor for youth in Qatar throughout their professional and career development journeys. It also reflects the program’s strategic goal of providing career guidance and counseling to various target groups through seasoned, experienced specialists selected from diverse backgrounds to be able to guide the various categories targeted by the program.

Al-Dileela builds on the success of QCDC’s Virtual Career Advising Sessions (VCAS) held during the COVID-19 pandemic. These sessions garnered widespread interest from various beneficiary groups in Qatar.

 

Objective

Al-Dileela aims to empower young people in Qatar by equipping them with the tools they need to make informed career decisions. Through a series of five consecutive phases, comprising intensive and personalized career counseling sessions, participants embark on a journey of self-discovery, aligning their skills, interests, and aspirations with fulfilling career paths. Led by a select group of experienced career counselors, the program utilizes a systematic approach that caters to each individual’s unique needs, age, and current professional stage. Each session provides tailored guidance to ensure participants gain the most from the program.

 

Target Audience

The program serves various segments of Qatari citizens and residents, specifically high school students, university students, fresh graduates, and job seekers. This target audience is divided into two categories: individuals undecided about their career path; and those who have chosen a career but are seeking opportunities in the job market.
