Almeer currently acts as the Senior Manager of the Skills Development and Training wing, leading a five-year long project and five departments of BYLC. His students have gone on to make major impacts on their fields, be it the public, private, or civil sectors.
Almeer believes that APL has an unique role in training the millions of graduating students of Bangladesh who, despite their grades, may not have the skills or confidence to demonstrate their employability in the job market. Explaining the importance of learning leadership in career development, Almeer said, “From my days in Harvard, I recall what a CEO of an organization told me. He said, ‘Look, I’ve been in the top position in an organization for 15 years, but I never managed to lead. I only performed the duties attached to the position.’ We want to imbibe our graduates with the passion to learn, grow, and lead.”
He goes on to add, “Through BYLC’s APL course, the scope of skills development truly expands. In addition to learning about several technical aspects, it becomes easier to find solutions to various problems. There’s so much more to think about beyond your own boundaries.”
