HP has announced its Graduate Recruitment Scheme for UAE Nationals at the signing of an Educational Memorandum Of Understanding between the vendor and his Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mubarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the UAE.Also present at the event at the Abu Dhabi Men’s College were representatives from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Labour and Dr Tayeb Kamali, director of Higher Colleges of Technology, as well as Gary Fazzino, VP of Government and Public Affairs for HP Worldwide who signed the agreement on behalf of the company. The launch of HPs new, annual Graduate Recruitment scheme is the first of its kind in the UAE and has been devised to encourage university students to join the private sector in the Middle East and in particular, to gain invaluable experience working for one of the central leading IT companies in the region.“HP and the Ministry of Education have been working to perfect this internship and feel that HP is providing a complete range of support services to these young professionals, including special workshops, seminars, as well as networking opportunities at local and international conferences,” said his Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mubarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the UAE.The Scheme is based on an internship of twelve months, where interns will work across a broad spectrum of divisions within HP focusing on sales, technical consultancy and customer support. “This programme will provide real exposure to the working environment for graduates, giving many of them their first taste of responsibility and accountability for defined tasks. Being assigned to one of HP’s business units will really provide our graduates with an opportunity to fully develop current skills and increase their working aptitude, said Dr Tayeb Kamali, director of Higher Colleges of Technology.At the end of the internship, HP will select the top performing nationals to join its operation in the UAE or any other country within International Sales Europe (ISE) as permanent members of staff working on an unlimited contract with Hewlett Packard. The final selection will be based on a performance review consisting of written feedback on previously agreed objectives and through meetings with the interns’ managers.
