GE woos best and brightest Saudis at US career fair
Providing rewarding jobs for Saudi nationals rank as one of GE’s most important contributions to the Kingdom, and the company has set itself a target of doubling its Saudi workforce to 1,600 in two years.
As part of that effort, GE is taking part this week in the Saudi Arabian Cultural Ministry Career Fair in Washington DC. Running from June 17-19, this is the largest Saudi career fair held overseas, and serves as a valuable forum for King Abdullah Scholarship Program graduates from around the US to meet with potential employers.
Senior managers from GE will be on hand to meet with the graduates, and explain to them how GE is committed to the continual professional growth of its employees, through comprehensive training programmes that put a strong emphasis on leadership skills. With more than 30,000 Saudi students in universities and colleges across the country, the US is by far the most important overseas education market for young Saudis, and more than 1,500 Saudi graduates are expected at the fair.
GE’s presence at the fair follows other high profile initiatives to pursuing the best Saudi graduates. Most notably, the opening this month of the SAR1 billion GE Energy Manufacturing Technology Center in Dammam is a concrete example of GE’s commitment to the Kingdom through the creation of cutting edge facilities and training programmes that provide young locals with fulfilling, challenging, and ultimately rewarding, career opportunities.
