Careers UAE to welcome thousands of Emirati youth

DUBAI, February 21, 2018

Careers UAE, a major hobs fair Dubai, UAE will open its doors in March to welcome thousands of Emirati students, fresh graduates and young professionals seeking full-time positions in some of the region’s top private and public organisations.

Taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 13-15 March, some of Careers UAE’s past successes have shared their stories and experiences from the three-day career exhibition to encourage Emiratis to take part in an event that provides a unique opportunity to have meaningful face-to-face conversations with decision makers.

Monther Mohamad Alhashimi, equipment maintenance engineer at Enoc, who attended Careers UAE in 2016, said: “I attended the Careers UAE to look for an organization that was keen on investing in me during the start of my career. I quickly filtered out the companies that were only attempting to fill in a job position, but rather recognize new talent and help build someone’s career. Having all companies in one place, it was very convenient for me to find out which company was a best fit for me, and at the same time where I was a best fit for them.”

“In many of the company stands that I visited, a large range of decision makers were present and were willing to answer my questions. This fast tracked the process of questioning, interacting, discussing and allowed me to immediately apply for jobs that best suited myself and the organization.

“Some companies offered for me to have a discussion with an engineer in a similar position that I was applying for. Afterward, I was often interviewed by an HR representative and submitted my CV.

“After the event, Enoc was one of the companies that recognized my potential and followed up on my application, requesting a follow up interview, and finally offering me a job. After reviewing the job description and offer, I decided to accept and join Enoc.

“It was an excellent platform for job seekers to find recruiters that are looking for talent. It acted as the perfect platform where there was a mutual benefit for the job seekers and the recruiters. Having attended UAE careers fair 2017 as a representative of Enoc for recruitment of engineers, I had discussions with large numbers of candidates and I was able to help select the best fit candidates for Enoc,” he added.

Noura Ahmed, Internship Officer for Zayed University (attended in 2016), said: “I attended Careers UAE to gain knowledge and experience of the current job market to see what was available for current skills and experience. Of course, I was keen on developing the skills I had learnt at university so I was definitely looking for a position that challenge me. As well as being a great place to network and meet individuals who were involved in the hiring process, the event allowed me to learn so much more about a multitude of different organisations and how they operate.” – TradeArabia News Service
