New online recruitment system seeks out more qualified graduates

The Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council, ADTC, has partnered with the Higher Colleges of Technology, HCT, in Abu Dhabi to launch the first phase of a new online manpower system which will assist Emirati graduates match their skill-sets to jobs in the Abu Dhabi labour market.
The new Mustaqbali, or "My Future", interface is designed to provide HCT students with access to up-to-date information and data relating to in-demand professions and disciplines in the Abu Dhabi labour market.
As a result of using Mustaqbali, the students will gain valuable knowledge of the most prominent employers and requirements of the various disciplines in Abu Dhabi’s workforce which match their skills and specialisations. This will ultimately enable new Emirati graduates to access job opportunities and boost the local economy.
Abdulla Abdulaali Al Humaidan, Executive Director of the ADTC, and Dr. Sultan Hussain Karmostaji, Director of the HCT-Abu Dhabi Colleges, attended the event, as well as key officials from each institution.
Dr. Abdullatif Al Shamsi, Vice Chancellor of the HCT, said that the importance of the cooperation between the Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council and HCT lies in providing graduates that are matched with the local labour market.
"The Mustaqbali system reduces the gap between higher education outputs and the future needs of the labour market and higher education inputs. Students get the opportunity of knowing the required specialisations in the coming years on which they can make informed choices," Dr. Al Shamsi said.
Dr. Sultan Karmostaji, Director of Abu Dhabi Colleges, said that 7,412 HCT students in Abu Dhabi will benefit from the programme in its first phase, which will be linked to the Higher Colleges of Technology, Zayed University and the Al Ain University for Sciences and Technology.
The ADTC is currently completing the second phase of this system, which will provide work placement and internships opportunities to students while they are studying in college, thus equipping them with the necessary skills and preparing them for employment following graduation. –End-
