“We create empowerment opportunities in the local talent pipeline. Our on-going contributions come under the auspices of our ‘innovation umbrella’, which brings first-of-their-kind recruitment solutions to engage new talented youths: we can provide instant interviews for suitable attendees which can then be followed up by immediate hiring for the right candidates at the Careers UAE event”, Mr. Alhashmi continued.
