During the day, DWC graduates and students got the chance to meet with participating Dubai employers and discussed possible employment opportunities with them.  Students and graduates were interviewed and received competitive employment offers from several employers.  “DWC Employers’ day is recognized  as a major recruitment event and aims to provide Employers in the private and public sectors with the opportunity to source, competent and talented graduates,  from one of the longest standing Colleges in the community.  Our drive at DWC at these exceptional economic times is to bring to campus the best Employers, on the day, to engage and interact with graduates and students. The objective is to facilitate recruitment for full-time and part-time positions, volunteer and summer employment and internships” said Rabia Bekhazi, DWC’s CAREERS Supervisor.

Employer Relations Coordinator, Islam Abu Jaber noted “Employers’ Day provides a real chance for employers to educate our students and graduates about their organizations, and the available vacancies.  For our students and graduates, this day is the right day to get employed, and to network, as we are hosting more than 40 employers from different sectors. This year, around 85% of the employers are from the private sector, where we want our Emirati students to be more involved now and in the future.” 

DWC Alumnae Association participated also in the event. Amal Al Koos, Marketing and Sponsorship Committee Leader in DWC Alumnae Association said, "Our participation today is part of our strategy in supporting DWC activities, emphasizing on building strong relationship with participating employers, and understand the employer's requirements which will help us to enrich our programs.  I believe this event is really value adding for employers, who seeks talented UAE Nationals who are competitive and highly skilled.   This is our first official participation as DWC Alumnae Association which was recently launched to support DWC and UAE community.”
