As part of its efforts to speed up the process of emiritisation, Dubai e-government has been working closely with colleges in the UAE to create more awareness of the career options that students can consider, after graduation. E-government representatives Marwan Al Naqi, community outreach officer, Government Sector, Anas Haddad, content manager and A. Nasser Ahli, software engineer recently hosted a presentation for a delegation of 20 students of the Dubai Women’s College to highlight the roles of marketing, content management and software engineering in enhancing e-services.

“We believe that it is imperative to educate students on the various options available today so as to facilitate their career choices. These presentations provide an ideal opportunity for students to be aware of the ever-changing job market. It was also in keeping with the Dubai e-Government objective to educate significant segments of the national community in order to strengthen the foundations of a technologically aware future population and share Dubai e-Government initiatives with residents of the emirate,” said Salem Al Shair, director of e-services, Dubai e-government. “The commitment of Dubai e-Government in the emiratisation process is evident as witnessed by the various initiatives undertaken by us. The e-government portal will soon have a job section where applicants can submit their CVs online, which will be distributed to all the government departments,” he added.

National students are taught basic skills in Maths, English and Arabic before they enter the first year of university. “This is an orientation program to help them prepare for their future career. It is a bridge between school and college to make sure that they possess the fundamental skills and have an idea of what field they will pursue after leaving college,” stated Stephen Bushill, faculty member, Dubai Women’s College. “We would like to thank the Dubai e-Government for providing us with the opportunity to be here today and we believe that the vision of Dubai Women’s College is in line with that of the e-government. Students will be compelled to write a report at the end of the presentations to show what they have understood, which is part of their training program,” he added.
