MUSCAT: A new initiative introduced this year by OITE Trade Fairs is the OCF Workshops, where training companies can present training demos to their prospective clients.

These workshops will take place from 9.30am-1pm & 4.30pm-9pm on all three days of OCF at the Oman International Exhibition Centre and will be free of charge.

After graduating from university, a graduate’s start of his career may prove to be disappointing if he doesn’t keep his expectations realistic in the current employment scenario. Both employers and graduates have certain expectations of each other when it comes to the hiring process which can lead to a certain mismatch and impending disappointment for both parties. In bridging this gap, Eng Saleh Mohammed al Shanfari, chairman, A’Saffa Foods helps attendees to get ready and set to enter the job market.

One of the most effective ways of increasing your influence in the workplace is developing charisma. This means nothing more than putting together a set of traits and behaviours that create a magnetic personality. In developing charisma you develop empathy, self confidence and assertiveness. Khalifa Khalfan al Saqri, MD, Al Takween will elaborate on this further through his workshop on Charismatic & Attractive Training.

When applying for your first job, your CV plays a fundamental role in creating a favourable impression on your potential employer. A creative, quality oriented CV will heighten your chance of procuring an interview, so a considerable amount of time and preparation must be spent to ensure the content and presentation is well done.

In helping students prepare for their first job or helping employees brush up their current CV presentation, Faiz al Maskiry, CEO, Ajyal HR Solutions & Services will guide them on how to write a CV.

The interview process is a significant one where a candidate can showcase his value to a potential employer.
