Dubai, March 8, 2011
Dubai-based Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU) is hosting a three-day electronic career fair, the-first-of-its kind in the UAE, under the banner “Innovative Ways to Explore New Career Options.”
The e-career fair, which will run up to March 10, serves as an ideal platform to promote electronic communication and interaction between university students and representatives of participating authorities and establishments from both the public and private sectors.
HBMeU said it is the first university in the UAE to host such a prominent electronic event, which is expected to have a positive impact on the local job market.
A leader in e-learning and quality management sector, HBMeU said the event comes as part of its vision to create an integrated knowledge environment for individuals and institutions and to stimulate innovation and creativity.
It will highlight the key aspects of making effective decisions with regard to recruitment of highly experienced and competent national young cadres, it added.
Dubai International Academic City, a key destination for international higher education and a member of Tecom Investments’ Education Cluster, will take part in the fair as a supporting sponsor in line with its strategic partnership with HBMeU.
Dr Mansoor Al Awar, chancellor of HBMeU, said: 'The fair has generated support from government and semi-government departments, which have expressed their strong interest to participate and sponsor the event.'
'In addition, the event has gathered a number of private sector companies seeking to expand their labour force by attracting promising young talents. Through this fair, we aim to assist students who are in search of job opportunities to meet their career aspirations and enhance their professional development,' Dr Al Awar noted.
According to him, the first edition of the fair will focus on recruitment in major sectors such as banking and financial services, tourism, construction, government services and telecommunications.
'We look forward to the success of this event and aspire to strengthen its position as a perfect platform to address the human resource requirements of public and private sector organisations through the use of advanced technology,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
