DUBAI// A careers fair aimed at supporting Emiratisation brought job seekers into contact with representatives from more than 60 companies, the state news agency Wam reported yesterday.

The event covered sectors such as retail, banking and financial services, hospitality, media, IT, education, business and marketing.

“The university acknowledges the importance of having strong relationships with various organisations in both [public and private] sectors, as well as the importance of developing communication ties with regional and international organisations, to apply the best educational practices and offer courses that go along with the job market,” said Sulaiman Al Jassim, the vice president of Zayed University.

“The university organises this event annually at both the Abu Dhabi and Dubai campuses to show the university’s great interest in providing job opportunities for its graduates and present the skills of its students.”

Dr Larry Wilson, the provost of Zayed University, said the jobs fair played an important role in building relations with private institutions and companies that participate in Emiratisation.
