Siemens WLL, the Qatari unit of Siemens AG, in collaboration with Qatar University recently hosted a three-day career workshop in Doha aimed at advising students in the fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical and civil engineering on choosing a career path and preparing them for entering the country's workforce. The career workshop, organized by Siemens Qatar's Human Resources team, sought to answer questions on how students can identify their target job, how to write an attractive CV, how to prepare for interviews and how to evaluate a job offer. Students who attended the workshop were able to gain new insights into day-to-day professional life and how to make educated decisions about entering a profession or obtaining further education.
Martin a Porta, CEO, Siemens WLL, said: "Siemens supports the leadership in Qatar and is committed to contributing to the Vision 2030. We believe that training and development plays a key role in the future of this country. It's our responsibility as a local partner to engage actively in such initiatives."
Siemens earlier this year participated successfully in the Qatar Career Fair in Doha and is also involved in a partnership with INJAZ Qatar, an initiative aimed at inspiring entrepreneurs and business innovation among Qatar's youth.
The workshop comes at a time when the number of job openings at Siemens in Qatar continues to increase on the back of the company's expanding sales, engineering and services activities to keep pace with the accelerating domestic project market. Siemens expects to double its workforce of almost 400 employees in the country within two years and is presently seeking local talent to fill a rising number of vacant positions, in particular in its Energy sector.
