A 2009 brand new Jeep Compass was presented as a grand prize. Muneera Ahmed Al Rubie, one of the many students that have recently came to the US, was the lucky winner. She was very excited and did not believe that she has won until NBK CEO – Kuwait Isam Al Sager gave her the key of the car and congratulated her.
Earlier the same evening, NBK PR team has participated in the Job Fair, and has presented to the students all career opportunities at NBK and has shared with them their own personnel experience as employees at NBK.
Al Mattar added that our students and Kuwaiti youths living and studying abroad actually deserve from us utmost attention, care as well as support that eventually contribute to the furthering of the Union's performance and syndicate, cultural sports activities as well as its patriotic and national awareness-raising efforts. NBK's sponsorship and support also comes in line with the bank's customary and ongoing spirit of corporate citizenship as well as the vital role it plays in supporting all students, youths and educational issues.
