“We also plan to hold seminars and conferences that discuss and put the most important issues affecting the Kingdom of Bahrain, such as labor market requirements and aspirations of young Bahrainis.
“As the Bahrain Polytechnic Alumni Club Chairman, I would like to encourage all of Polytechnic graduates to join their friends in the alumni club as the registration process will be announced for the public in the near futures.” concluded Isa Al Samaim.
Mariam Alawadhi, Club vice-president, added: “My hopes are that this alumni club will be a great door for Bahrain Polytechnic graduates to communicate with the Polytechnic about anything they want. Moreover, this alumni club will allow all of us [former students] to reconnect and gather with each other after being separated in our own different busy lives just like we used to do when we were students. Hopefully, this club will be part of the amazing journey that the Polytechnic have had so far and will continue having in the future.”
