Tawteen Council hails job fair success

The Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council, the governmental body tasked with finding employment for Emirati jobseekers, says it has had success at the Najah Exhibition job fair.

AL AIN // The Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council, the governmental body tasked with finding employment for Emirati jobseekers, has said it had a lot of success at last week's three-day Najah Exhibition job fair in Abu Dhabi. That event focused on trying to help young Emirati graduates and job seekers and offered career counselling. It included a seminar in collaboration with Mubadala Aerospace exploring career opportunities in the aerospace industry in Abu Dhabi, as part of the Government's focus on developing a knowledge-based economy in line with its vision for 2030.

The seminar included a presentation by two aerospace industry experts from the Boeing Company, Juma Rashid al Dhaheri, the executive director of business development, and Wael Mohamed Zaoud, its director of business development. The presentation focused on the plans for the industry in the UAE. On Sunday, the council also launched a special project to help women in Al Ain find work. The council launched the initiative, the Al Ain Mustaqbal project, at an employer forum at the Al Ain Rotana Hotel.

The gathering brought together private and public sector employers to address the lack of employment opportunities for women in the area. * The National
