Over 60 companies are currently hiring in Sharjah during The National Career Exhibition, a career event in the UAE that offers training and employment opportunities to national graduates in the country.
With 17 editions in the past, the exhibition gives access to students, graduates, trainees and jobseekers from universities, vocational training institutes and professional colleges.
The event, which started on Wednesday ends today. The event runs today from 4pm to 8 pm.
Prominent companies like Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Al Ansari Exchange, Bank of Sharjah, Central Bank of UAE, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Department of e-government of Sharjah, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dubai Parks and Resorts, Emirates Post, Etisalat, Federal Electricity & Water Authority, Ministry of Health and Sharjah International Airport are hiring among several others.
Entry is restricted to UAE nationals only. Online pre-registration is now closed but if you still wish to visit you can register yourself at the onsite visitor registration counters.
The UAE declared 2013 as the Year of Emiratisation, whereby several events were held to offer opportunities for young Emiratis seeking to join the UAE labour force.
In 2016, the UAE National Agenda mandated that Emiratisation levels will have to increase tenfold over the next seven years, exhorting the private sector to push for a higher rate of Emiratisation than the present levels.
Companies in the country rely on national graduates to meet most of their human resource needs.
The graduates are seen as an integral part of these companies’ strategies that aim to nurture the skills of young UAE nationals and prepare them as future leaders of the banking and finance industry and private sector institutions, says the website of National Career Exhibition.
Events such as these will support the government’s goal by 2021 to spot, train, recruit and retain capable nationals in key positions.
