The UAE nationals which starts on March 13 at the Dubai International Convention Centre.


Officials at the Press conference said the nationals are equally hesitant sometimes in accepting jobs in the private sector. The public sector is always lucrative with tempting pay packets and perks. This is not the case with the private sectors. As a result, they usually prefer the public sector.

The officials of Tanmia added that there were some backlogs with them at the moment.

They said they wanted to make job seekers aware of the available opportunities and the right way to approach a private sector company.

“Only recently we have started a campaign in order to inform the nationals about the job opportunities. We have opened information bureaus in schools, universities and colleges throughout the country in order to provide general statistics and information about the changing requirements of the employment sector to students and others.”

“Through these bureaus, we are aiming to inform the different students about the local job market requirements, different professional directions available and highlight potential opportunities to help students define their future career choices, they said.

The bureaus are located at the Institute of Applied Technology, Emirates University, Al Ain Women’s Technical College, Al Fujairah Men’s Technical College, Ajman Secondary School, Al Ameer Secondary School and Al Quadssiyeh Secondary School. “Moreover, the misunderstandings have to be removed. The private companies need to know and understand the fact that UAE nationals are in no sense inferior when it comes to education. And exhibitions and fairs like this would clear the cloud,” Lootah said.

The 7th edition of the Careers UAE will offer specialised training courses and workshops. Some of the companies have promised immediate interviews as well as recruitment. The event is being supported by the Dubai World Trade Centre, Tanmia, the Labour Ministry and many colleges and universities of the Emirate.

Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director-General of the Dubai World Trade Centre, said, “The support from the industry for the Careers UAE-2007 has been overwhelming.”

The exhibition will bring together leading companies from various sectors including financial services, hospitality and tourism, oil and gas, training and education etc.
