Little Employee 2022

8:00 am - 2:00 pm

About the initiative

Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC) is launching the ‘Little Employee’, an initiative offering students (aged 9 to 15) a hands-on experience to learn what working life is actually like. The program requires students to help their parents or relatives at their workplace for one day.

Along with giving the participants an immersive experience of professional life, the program also offers children a memorable and unique experience during their student life. Moreover, it will teach them about the value of work and help them learn the basic concepts about professional life from their parents or relatives. Students will also visualize a preliminary picture of their future career, which can help them plan their career path early on, by making informed educational decisions that ensure they achieve their ambitions.

 

Participants

We invite students between the ages of 9 and 15 from any country around the world to participate in Little Employee.

 

Duration

The initiative is flexible, and any working day between August 8-11, 2022, can be chosen.

 

Objectives

  1. Provide students with the opportunity to experience a real work environment and help them explore their career interests in an entertaining and engaging setting.
  2. Help parents or relatives communicate and discuss academic choices and career goals with children.
  3. Enhance the role of parents and relatives in guiding and advising their children professionally, as QCDC believes the family plays a key role in determining an individual’s professional identity.
  4. Demonstrate the commitment of the institutions participating in the initiative and their support for educating students, by introducing them to some of the career options offered in the labor market and the skills needed to follow a specific career path. Moreover, the participation of these institutions in the initiative serves as a starting point to encourage other institutions to take part in this educational experience in the coming years, thus offering opportunities to more students.
