The 25th National Career Expo at the Sharjah Exhibition Center saw thousands of students participating, and one visitor in particular grabbed everyone’s attention.

Hamdan Mohammed, a wheelchair-bound student, is pursuing a Bachelor of Public Communications at Umm Al Quwain University. Moving gracefully through each booth at the show, Hamdan connected with human resources managers, counselors and industry experts to learn more about changing trends in the job market.

Despite facing physical challenges, Hamdan’s aspirations soar as he actively explores the skills required in his area of ​​interest.

“The world changes very quickly. Every day we see new positions, designations, and skill sets needed to perform a good job. When I graduate, I want to make sure I am equipped with all the skills that will allow me to perform well,” said Hamdan, who is in his first year in the program.

Hamdan believes that being in conference rooms provides a wealth of knowledge that becomes the backbone of work life. “But exploring career fairs and developing connections even before you graduate makes the process easier and also gives you confidence to face life,” said Hamdan, who believes it’s crucial to keep up with the changing job market.

Hamdan’s goal is clear. “I am here to discover the latest trends and career opportunities in my field and to make meaningful connections that will pave the way for my future success,” Hamdan said.

Hamdan not only wants to keep up with the evolving world, he wants to be a leader. He wants to prove that being in a wheelchair doesn’t stop him from being successful.

This is not the first career fair that Hamdan has participated in. He has been participating for a couple of years now. “Every year I learn new perspectives on various industries. A few years ago most of the work was done manually and then the machine age began. And today it is AI that is taking the world by storm. We must all be prepared for change and improve ourselves,” Hamdan said.

Many entities including ministries, private and government institutions, banking and financial companies and global universities participate in the fair to recruit the right candidate for the vacant positions.

The exhibition began on Tuesday, October 17 and will run until Thursday, October 19, showcasing the latest employment trends and future job opportunities in numerous sectors. The event provided a platform for visitors to familiarize themselves with career paths in artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced manufacturing, virtual reality and data analytics, along with employment opportunities in engineering, management, information technology, customer service, finance and banking, investments and aviation. and communications.
