Bank of Valletta hosted students from St Joseph Mater Boni Consilii School of Paola at its centre in Santa Venera for a workshop on “My Future, Learning about my Prospects”, according to a press release published by BOV.
The initiative was held in collaboration with the Malta Insititute of Management and it was aimed at raising awareness about career options within the financial services industry and promoting financial education for the youths.
“The most important thing is to make sure that you pursue a career that is in line with your interests. It is more rewarding to aim at doing a job that you know you will enjoy. Once you have determined your goal, you need to plan and then work hard to achieve that goal,” said Tania Camilleri from Ethics and Employee Development at Bank of Valletta.
In addition, Karen Mifsud from the bank’s human resources spoke about the team spirit, staff activities and job opportunities available at the bank. While Tonia Naudi from Multi-Channel Banking explained the mechanisms behind payment systems and the different channels available.
The students participated in interactive sessions on smart ways of payments, trying their hands at Internet Banking, ATMs and Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) terminals.
