A platform by IUB (Independent University Bangladesh) to prepare their students for the professional field focused on acing job interviews. Several companies were invited to take mock interviews from relevant field. Students may also get hired if the companies find a promising candidate.
This year, professionals from Magnito Digital, Dhaka Tribune,
BRAC International, etc. interviewed the participating students.
Internship in Magnito is special and this event presents a unique opportunity for them. Interns work on a rotational basis in all fields of advertising and gain a broad hands-on experience with different teams to have a head start in their career. explains Syeda Nafisa Noor, Senior Executive, People & Culture – Magnito Digital Ltd.
We shared a case study of Magnito to inspire the candidates that our current Deputy General Manager also joined as an intern 5 years ago and over the years Magnito facilitated his growth.
At the mock interview session, we described in a nutshell what Magnito does and initially asked them in which field they are comfortable with in an agency setting. We found them very enthusiastic and some of them have even acquired multiple professional skills on their own during their studentship.
After the session, we called some of the bright ones at our office for a round two of the interview as a real recruitment process.
The coordinator of this event and also a faculty of IUB, Mr. Zubayer Zakir Khan was actively engaged with the students – correcting their mistakes and guiding them.
It was an interesting session to see into the minds of the young and how competitive they have become. As we grow in the industry it is also our responsibility to nurture the young and invite them to a career that can pave paths.
