For the 4th consecutive year, Qatar Shell successfully collaborated with Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) to sponsor the Education City Career Fair in Qatar. The career fair connects more than 60 public and private sector employers with students and alumni to provide them with exciting career opportunities. The fair witnessed participation from H.E Dr. Issa Bin Saad Al Juffali Al-Naimi, Minister of Administrative Development, who inaugurated the fair alongside HBKU President Dr. Ahmad M. Hasnah and Qatar Shell Deputy General Manager Rashid Al-Sulaiti along with other renowned university deans and senior Shell representatives. Qatar Shell was the main sponsor as part of its commitment to support Qatar’s national vision and specifically the human development pillar. Shell booth was efficiently run by our enthusiastic recent graduates as well as our active Campus Ambassador members who interacted with students in an engaging way. Furthermore, an information session was separately held for all employers to inform them about the fair and the access they were to attain to many well-rounded candidates in a one-stop environment. During the session, expectations regarding training, employment, and internship opportunities were also discussed and this was also an opportunity to assist job seekers with their resume writing, interview tips and presentation skills.
A total of 204 applications were received. This is 63% increase in comparison to last year out of which we had 4 offer accepts.
