Dr Omar Hefni said, “After the success of last year’s job fair, the University of Dubai is proud to hold its second job fair this year. The event provided ample career and internship opportunities on a full-time or part-time basis to students and alumni of the university. On one hand, students were made aware of the available jobs in the market and the requirements to qualify for it through their active interaction with company representatives from both the private and public sectors. On the other hand, participating companies found UD students and graduates as talented and well-rounded individuals because of the training they have received on the university’s great emphasis on applied curriculum, intercultural and critical thinking and positive attitude.”
