Muscat: Leading higher education institutions and corporations in Muscat will be participating in the Intercollegiate Career Fair from May 2-3, 2016 at the Oman Tourism College campus in Seeb.
The career fair is being jointly sponsored by Modern College of Business and Science and Oman Tourism College, with participation from Muscat College, Arab Open University-Oman, and Waljat College of Applied Sciences.
“This is the second intercollegiate career fair to be held in Muscat, and it has the potential to grow into a mega career event, with wide industry and academic participation. The fair will provide much needed exposure for Omani students to the Sultante’s private sector and available career opportunities, as well as selection criteria. On the other hand, the fair will provide the perfect platform for the corporate world to interact with young graduates and match their capabilites with various job requirements,” said Dr Shoba Zachariah, Assistant Dean at Oman Tourism College, during a press briefing held at Oman Tourism College on Sunday.
Speaking at the briefing, Prof. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Naamany, the Dean of Modern College, said, “The career fair will open up a world of career opportunities for graduates. Last year, when Modern College was brainstorming over the idea of holding the first intercollegiate career fair, we wanted it to be as inclusive and broad-based as possible, so that both students and industry receive maximum benefits.”
