Telenor Myanmar said it will host its first career seminar in Yangon, bringing together expert speakers to share insights with candidates interested to build a career in the strategic telecommunications industry.
The seminar will be held on December 5 from 9am to 4pm at the Co-Operative Business Centre (former Sayar San Plaza) in Yangon. Interested applicants will have the opportunity to submit their resume directly to the company and learn more about new career opportunities, Telenor said in a statement.
Attendance is free-of-charge and no registration is required. Applicants have to bring copies of their resume with them when attending this seminar.
Since Telenor Myanmar launched the first phase of its employee recruitment program in August this year, the company has hired about 80 employees, with Myanmar citizens taking up key positions in departments including management, human resources, and finance, among others, Telenor said.
The company is on track to hire 160 employees by the end of this year and 1,000 employees by the end of 2014, in addition to creating another 2,000 jobs through indirect employment with local business partners and vendors.
“We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from a diverse range of candidates who want to be part of Telenor’s … work environment and culture, and we are pleased to be on track in meeting our short-term and long-term recruitment objectives,” said Tipayarat Kaewsringarm, chief people officer, Telenor Myanmar.
The company will also invest in career and skill development programs for all employees in a bid to develop Myanmar’s telecommunications industry through job creation and the transfer of expertise, it said.
The Telenor Myanmar Academy, a centre for professional development programs for employees at all levels, will kick off a series of leadership and professional training programs for the first group of its employees in early December, and will offer other ongoing training programs for new and current staff members.
The courses run by the academy will be conducted in Bangkok and Yangon, and will provide training to equip employees with the knowledge and skills required to perform in their roles and support achievement of their career goals, Telenor said.
Kaewsringarm said: “We take pride in knowing that our employees can share in our passion and dedication to play an important role in the development of state-of-the-art telecom infrastructure for their country, as well as provide innovative mobile communication services that will empower society and enrich the lives of millions of people across Myanmar.”
