The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Has­san Shin­gali

The Kur­dis­tan re­gion of Iraq has been wit­ness­ing an eco­nomic up­turn in re­cent years and as a re­sult more than 2,300 for­eign com­pa­nies reg­is­tered here in ad­di­tion to the 15,000 lo­cal ones ac­cord­ing to Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Sta­tis­tics Of­fice. This cre­ates op­por­tu­ni­ties to the grad­u­ate stu­dents to find jobs in or­der to fur­ther de­velop their ca­pa­bil­i­ties and skills. The pub­lic sec­tor continues load­ing them­selves with a high rate of em­ploy­ment and they are not ca­pa­ble enough of pro­vid­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for ev­ery­one. Ca­reer De­vel­op­ment Cen­ter (CDC) has had a ma­jor role in open­ing up op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents and alumni who are ac­tively seek­ing jobs. Duhok Con­fer­ence Hall in­vited a great num­ber of grad­u­ate and un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents who were seek­ing jobs .

About 2000 stu­dents at­tended the Job Fair of CDC that was held a week ago in Duhok Con­fer­ence Hall. The Job Fair was a re­cruit­ing and net­work­ing event con­ducted by the Ca­reer De­vel­op­ment Cen­ter at the Univer­sity of Duhok and the aim of the event was to let the em­ploy­ers and the em­ploy­ees to know each other. This was done by gath­er­ing em­ploy­ers, stu­dents, alumni and govern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives to­gether so that they could co­op­er­ate to cre­ate more job op­por­tu­ni­ties. The Job Fair 2014 was held for the sec­ond time. It was spon­sored by the pri­vate sec­tor in the Kur­dis­tan re­gion .

The Fair aimed at help­ing un­em­ployed people, es­pe­cially univer­sity grad­u­ates, to find jobs through co­op­er­a­tion with the lo­cal em­ploy­ers. Prior to the con­fer­ence, the va­can­cies were an­nounced among the univer­sity stu­dents in Duhok. They were en­cour­aged to seek these jobs or fill in job­seek­ing forms. Very many for­eign com­pa­nies have at- tended the job fair and were very co­op­er­a­tive with can­di­dates who tried to find a suit­able job.
