Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2010) has signed a MoU with Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council (ADTC) as an important partnership to encourage greater Emiratisation and talent attraction in the energy sector.
The partnership will see the creation of the first ADIPEC Graduate Fair, where UAE graduates will have access to a two day networking event, running simultaneously to ADIPEC at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). The fair will allow students to have direct access to key HR managers from leading national and international oil and gas companies, to provide employment opportunities and insights into energy careers. The ADIPEC Graduate Fair will also include a series of presentations from industry leaders, as well as discussions on the challenges and rewards facing students within the sector to help attract top talent and greater awareness of the scope of career prospects and growth.
Hifazat Ahmad, event director of ADIPEC said, ‘there are an increasing number of talented oil and gas graduates here in the region, and we wanted to create a forum where this great commodity of future industry leaders can have access to information and resources to help them make positive career choices and progress within the industry. ADIPEC is delighted to be working with Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council and in close cooperation with the wider oil and gas community in order to identify where the talent gaps and opportunities are that can be filled by National graduates.’
