After the success of Gulf News’ first webinar on the hybrid model of higher education UAE universities are adopting, the second webinar tackles a topic that’s on the mind of every student – employability.
Although recruiters have always been on the lookout for corporate-ready graduates, they were willing to hire brilliant students and let them learn on the job in earlier times. But in a pandemic, they don’t have the luxury to take on fresh graduates, train and mentor them. They want people who can hit the ground running.
Join Gulf News' second webinar, Employability: Keeping pace with the market needs on July 7 at 5pm, organised by GN Focus, which will have experts from leading UAE universities discuss how they are preparing students for the change.
Participating in the webinar are:
- Dr Michael Kloep, Head of Careers and Employability Service, Middlesex University
- Raj Kapoor, Director of Student Recruitment at American University in Dubai
- Prof. Hossam Hamdy, Chancellor of Gulf Medical University
- Zawahir Siddique, Head of Blended Learning, Westford University College
- and Keary Shandler, Programme Coordinator and Faculty for Undergraduate Business, Murdoch University
