165 Emiratis qualify for work at 18 companies

As many 165 male and female Emiratis from Al Dhafra region have qualified for vacancies offered at 18 companies, during the career fair that was recently organized by the Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratization (MoHRE), in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) and the emirate’s Human Resources Authority.

As many 165 male and female Emiratis from Al Dhafra region have qualified for vacancies offered at 18 companies, during the career fair that was recently organized by the Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratization (MoHRE), in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) and the emirate’s Human Resources Authority.

The move came in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council to create more than 10,000 jobs for UAE citizens in the private and government sectors under the umbrella of the "Ghadan 21" plan.

Sponsored by His Excellency Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region, the career fair was aimed at accelerating employment of 1,000 Emiratis in Al Dhafra region within the next three months.

Saif Al Suwaidi, Undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs at MoHRE, highlighted that the Ministry is currently liaising with the concerned companies in regards to the next steps to hire the 123 candidates who had qualified to fill positions at the career fair, as well as the recruitment process for the Emiratis who received job offers during the event.

Regarding the 157 applicants who did not pass the job interviews they have undergone during the fair, Al Suwaidi said that the Ministry is working with the concerned companies to determine the reasons why they were unable to pass, adding that will be enrolled in the ‘Tamkeen’ program.

Organized by MoHRE in partnership with Higher Technology College (HCT), ‘Tamkeen’ aims to arm young Emirati talents with necessary skill sets to pass job interviews during upcoming career fairs.

Al Suwaidi praised participating companies’ commitment to supporting the Emiratization accelerators initiative in Al Dhafra. He also commended the level of participation in the event by male and female Emiratis. 

“The Ministry will continue to work with its strategic partners to host similar events in Al Dhafra region to support the efforts undertaken by the Job Opportunities Committee, part of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, in driving Emiratisation in Abu Dhabi, to support Emiratization in the emirate, and reach Emiratization objectives of the UAE National Vision 2021,” Al Suwaidi added.

He stressed the importance of career fairs in accelerating employment of Emiratis in the private sector, especially that it gives them the opportunity to interact directly with hiring companies, thus boosting direct employment.

Worth noting that the Ministry manages open career fairs through four phases. The first involves participants registering on a smart platform upon arrival, which allows them to choose three available employment opportunities. The second phase involves offering professional guidance to educate job seekers about the importance of the target sector and the available job opportunities, and make sure of jobseekers’ readiness for the job interviews, while the third phase aims to train job seekers how to conduct interviews, and fourth is to conduct the interview.
