Islamic finance – crisis for jobseekers

The educational system provides numerous young specialists in Islamic finance, however, they are hardly able to find a job. According to a UAE senior Islamic banker, one of the main problems in the industry lies in the lack of suitable graduate training programmes and internships. Thus, it becomes very difficult to absorb the growing number of graduates. The solution to this issue is in the hands of the corresponding institutions themselves. Moreover, employers look for experienced employees and even prefer experienced candidates from the conventional banking sector.
