Careers UAE launches new jobs portal
Dubai, April 22, 2013
Careers UAE, a leading education and training exhibition exclusively for UAE nationals, has launched a user-friendly job portal (jobs.careersuae.ae) to cater to the needs of job seekers and recruiters.
Careers UAE Exhibition is being organised and hosted by Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from April 30 to May 2.
The 13th edition of Careers UAE Exhibition coincides with the Year of Emiratisation, and will bring graduates and job seekers face-to-face with a diverse range of exhibitors.
The event’s partners include Al Futtaim, Bayt.com, Commercial Bank of Dubai, First Select, Go Glocal, Higher Colleges of Technology, National Bank of Abu Dhabi, the Presidential Guard, Tanmia, UAE University and Zayed University.
Prospective employees can select from an abundance of rewarding jobs in diverse sectors such as banking, telecommunications, ICT, transportation, trade, oil and gas, hospitality, recruitment, education and semi-government. Meanwhile, the job portal will seek to replicate the concept of this event in the digital world by connecting job seekers with leading companies that match their career aspirations.
Asma Al Sharif, Careers UAE Exhibition manager at DWTC, said: “We are witnessing a young generation of tech-savvy Emiratis who are very active on social media and cyberspace as a whole.”
“They seek maximum convenience in minimum time. Therefore our job portal will empower them to quickly and easily navigate through a world of opportunities, and find jobs that are in sync with their career ambitions.
“The exciting thing for applicants is that each day potentially offers something new, because new companies and new vacancies will be regularly added. Following this launch initiative we aim to build on the interest we have received so far, by constantly attracting more employers to post jobs for locals online. As more companies come on board the portal, its reputation will grow and other companies will also be motivated to participate and make our portal their preferred recruitment interface,” she added.
Sultan Al Sabri, vice president, Human Resources and Organization Effectiveness of Dubai Aluminum, a Strategic Partner for the event, said: “As a country that prides itself in maintaining international standards, it is vital that we also keep pace with the latest global trends in recruitment by migrating our vacancy listings from traditional media to the digital platform.”
While the job portal is a major attraction, the showcase also offers numerous other attractions, such as the Majid Bin Mohammed UAE Nationals Training Initiative, which will mark its third successive year, striving to nurture Emiratis into executive and managerial positions by giving them experience in leading national and international companies.
In addition, a women-only event where visitors can interact with their role models through an Emirati Women Leaders Panel, featuring highly successful women who have paved the way in the business world. There will also be a LEGO and Metaphor Training session which challenges participants to stretch the limits of their imagination. – TradeArabia News Service
