ALHOSN pursued international training & career opportunities for its students at NAJAH 2010
World’s largest student-run organization offered free career assessments during event
HOSN University, an Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality, value-based education, fully explored regional and international opportunities for its students last Tuesday, October 19, 2010, the opening day of the 4th NAJAH Education Training and Careers Exhibition, which took place from October 19 to 21, 2010 at Halls 8 and 9 of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
ALHOSN joined over 100 local and international universities during the most comprehensive annual education, training and careers event in the UAE. The university fielded a delegation of officials, staff and students to NAJAH to interact with some of the region’s biggest companies who accommodated applications from qualified graduates and alumni. Last year, projects displayed by students from ALHOSN’s software engineering and architecture departments were among NAJAH’s popular attractions.
NAJAH 2010 is being held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
“One of our main priorities is to provide major training and career opportunities to our students, and NAJAH is the best event in the UAE for such purpose. This exhibition provides an excellent platform to showcase our world-class academic programs and affirm our emergence as one of Abu Dhabi’s top educational institutions. NAJAH will remain an integral part of our annual calendar of major events,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
At this year’s edition of NAJAH, students benefited from experts’ evaluation of their curriculum vitae and job application letters. AIESEC, the world’s largest student-run organization with a presence in over 107 countries and territories, provided free career assessments to student attendees. Other features included networking opportunities with universities and training institutions from more than 10 countries, a new Advice Clinic where professional counselors provided career recommendations and educational advice, and exclusive inspirational sessions conducted by industry leaders. The second day of the event was open to ladies only from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
ALHOSN has been participating in key regional and international educational forums such as NAJAH to fulfill its commitment of ‘Global Knowledge with Local Vision’ to its students.
