Abu Dhabi to host education, career fair

Abu Dhabi, Oct 28 (IANS/WAM) Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) is all set to host Najah, the largest education, training and careers exhibition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), from Tuesday.

The seventh annual Najah exhibition, organised under the patronage of UAE's Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, is set to attract more than 120 exhibitors.

The three-day expo serves as a unique platform for students to meet recruitment advisors from leading local and international universities, discover scholarship and internship opportunities, as well as gain professional advice from faculty members. Najah also offers potential opportunities for professionals pursuing new career opportunities in government and non-government entities in the region.

"Education is a key factor in enabling the upcoming generation to succeed amongst the professional workforce. Hosting educational and career fairs of this magnitude will benefit the community as a whole and positively impact our UAE economy," Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, chief commercial officer at ADNEC, said.

"Many educational institutions from across the region in addition to multiple government and private organisations will be present at the expo to provide onsite guidance to students and visitors seeking possible vacancies. Last year, Najah attracted over 18,000 visitors and we anticipate the numbers to exceed this year," he added.
