This is a series of career guidance webinars for youth. With COVID19 having a severe and detrimental impact on our economy and our young people this year, the future career prospects of our youth have been affected. Our youngsters face the risk of unemployment and reduced opportunities. Therefore, the career decisions that young people make this year will be crucial. As a provider for career guidance counseling and training, I see this as my responsibility to take the lead and bring forth this initiative to help our community.
It is important for me to support, motivate, and help our students make intelligent career choices. By collaborating in this initiative with Muscat University, I intend to stand at the forefront in empowering our youth and to bring transformation to the community. This initiative aims to educate youth and contribute to the betterment of society and the nation.

- These webinars will help young people to understand their strengths and career preferences.
- This series will help youth make their educational, training, and occupational choices aligned with the emerging job market.
