I hope this greeting finds each of you in the best of health and spirits. Ramadan Kareem for those observing Ramadan during this holy month. We are just about to complete another cycle of professional development training, and would like to bring you up to date, and share with you details of the latest training, some testimonials and pictures.

We have partnered with a new organization HRD (Human Resource Development) for this current cycle to conduct the training to recent university graduates. In the past, beneficiaries of our professional training program were from Birzeit University; and we are pleased to announce that for this cycle we also have attendees from Al-Quds University. Due to the large number of participants attending the training this cycle, we have divided the training into 2 sessions: the first session which finished on June 29th; and the 2nd session is currently in progress. 

Topics for the training included: 

  • Business and Email writing
  • English Language
  • CV writing / Presentation / Branding
  • Time management
  • Coaching and leadership
  • Computer Skills

 We received positive feedback from participants, and wanted to share with you what some of them had to say: 

"The Arab Americare Foundation is US based organization that concentrates on developing professional and economic wellbeing of Palestinian young graduates. This organization achieves its mission through the Palestinian Youth Leadership Program. It provides professional training and enhances the employability of young professionals. On a personal level, the training course has benefited me in many aspects. It taught me how to construct an efficient CV and cover letter. Moreover, it helped me develop a certain idea about people, as each and every person is different, with different personalities and characteristics. Therefore, different approaches need to be undertaken to treat people, whether they are customers or employees. Furthermore, it emphasized on the importance of time management, since people can be more productive and efficient through organizing their time. Finally, it helped me understand the importance of researching, preparing, and communicating to prevent potential crises within a company, and the steps that need to be undertaken to deal with such problems." Alexandra 

 

"As this course has enriched my personal and professional skills, I believe I am capable now of being a good interviewee and employee. As a fresh graduate, I have studied the theories and did internships, but this intensive course have added more beneficial information I will definitely use every day of my career life and will open ways to get a job. Finding people who understand what the market needs, and what skills we should have to meet these needs, creates wider opportunity to get a job and be a part of building our country. This is a lifetime chance." Lina 

"It was a golden opportunity to engage in this wonderful training in HRD with Arab AmeriCare to enhance my abilities in the work filed Arab AmeriCare Foundation allowed us this opportunity which has increased significantly my practical experience, this training add an important topics to our skills that’s required in work filed, the training in my opinion has achieved its goals which is to create highly skilled graduates to make them ready to talk there first step in there career , at the end I would like to thank Arab AmeriCare Foundation for everything." Mohammad  

As well as, we are also in the process of planning to offer professional development training classes to recent university graduates of Bethlehem University, in which we are aiming to have sometime this summer; and will share with you details of that training in the next report.

 

 

 

 

 

  

Dear all, may this update find each of you in the best of health and spirits. Happy Spring.  


We recently completed another round of professional development training, which was held January 31 to February 6, 2015. The training was conducted by Ritaj for Managerial Solutions. I wanted to share with you the following testimonies from 2 participants that attended this past session:

“These courses taught me how to be prepared for an interview, and now I feel confident handling future interviews.”

“I learned how to market myself and how to define the thing that will distinguish me from others, and I learned that after I have a job, I must participate in the decision making process in that company.”


Enclosed for your review is the following information:

The training report prepared by Ritaj that includes information on participants, detailed information on the topics covered in the training, etc.

I know how each of you looks forward to receiving our regular updates. It is time to post another project report to brief you on our Professional Development Program.

Our upcoming professional development training is scheduled to take place this August 7th. Therefore, we are currently working on preparing for its implementation. We are still looking to finalize the professional training institution on ground we will be retaining to conduct the training. One of the training institutions, which is a prospect, is the same company we used for the last session, which is Ritaj for Managerial Solutions.

As you know, the topics offered in the last session included: Computer skills Workplace environment Effective communication skills Resume building and interview skills Time management Leadership skills. However, in addition to those topics listed above, we are also looking to add the following subjects for the upcoming round: (i) Personal branding; (ii) The elevator pitch; (iii) Business English, and (iv) accounting and financial concepts basics for all non business graduates, in hopes to expose our intended beneficiaries, i.e. recent university graduates with greater practical knowledge and skills that will help them in their job-hunting efforts and better equip them for the work environment.
