College of the North Atlantic – Qatar (CNA-Q) is organising a virtual career fair that will see the participation of more than 50 companies.
The two-day fair aims at providing employment or sponsorship opportunities, and gives visitors the chance to delve into the professional world, inquire about the key skills employers look for and discover the vacancies available in the marketplace.
This yearly event is held virtually for the first time, from 10am to 5pm, providing the same amount of opportunities for networking and engagement as previous years.
The fair is open to everyone in Qatar especially high school students in addition to CNA-Q students and alumni. Leading up to the event, CNA-Q students will be given the opportunity to work closely with career advisors at the College to practice their job pitch skills, receive interview tips and help sharpen their resumes.
The event offers insights as well, into what candidates look for in an organisation and the way they envision their careers.
In a press statement, CNA-Q president Dr Salem al-Naemi said: “We believe that this career fair is more than just a platform to bring together job-seekers and employers. It is a hub for interaction, advice and capacity building. At CNA-Q, students are placed at the centre of our learning process. We aim to give them as many real-life learning experiences as we can, so they can extend what they acquired in the classroom to their broader communities.
“This yearly event is part of many activities we host to provide our talented individuals with career guidance. CNA-Q also boasts a career counseling and resource centre (CCRC), to assist students with career plans, job search techniques and help them sharpen their employability skills. We appreciate the contribution of all our partners to this event and we hope they continue to support the College and help us nurture young ambitious minds.”
