Fazza 3 crew eye a hat-trick in Sweden

Emirati duo want 100 per cent record as the city this afternoon plays host to the country's Class 1 powerboat grand prix.

Hailing from what was once a former fishing village, Dubai-born powerboat champions Nader Bin Hendi and Arif al Zafeen likely feel perfectly at ease in the Scandinavian marine port resort of Uddevalla. Known locally as the 'Heart of the Swedish West Coast', the city this afternoon plays host to the country's Class 1 grand prix and the Emirati duo are hoping to win locals' hearts by maintaining their 100 per cent record of successes on the sea so far this season.

The Fazza 3 crew are chasing a hat-trick of triumphs following victories in Brazil and Norway, but Bin Hendi knows his team must ignore their beautiful surroundings if they are to rewrite the racing record books. With first practice taking place today before the first of two races tomorrow, Bin Hendi says he and teammate Al Zafeen remain totally focused. "Of course things have gone very well for us so far this season, but race wins are not achieved without total effort and commitment - both in and out of the boat," said the 40-year-old. "If we let up in our preparations for even one day, we know there are teams out there who will be more than happy to take advantage."

Ironically, the UAE pair's closest challengers in the chase for the UIM Class 1 Championship is Fazza 1, their stablemates who recently rebranded the Victory Team-built boat Skydive Dubai 1. Abdullah al Mehairbi will be joined by Talib El Sayed for the action in Sweden. @Email:gmeenaghan@thenational.ae

10 tips for entry-level job seekers
  • Have an up-to-date, professional LinkedIn profile. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, set one up today. Avoid poor-quality profile pictures with distracting backgrounds. Include a professional summary and begin to grow your network.
  • Keep track of the job trends in your sector through the news. Apply for job alerts at your dream organisations and the types of jobs you want – LinkedIn uses AI to share similar relevant jobs based on your selections.
  • Double check that you’ve highlighted relevant skills on your resume and LinkedIn profile.
  • For most entry-level jobs, your resume will first be filtered by an applicant tracking system for keywords. Look closely at the description of the job you are applying for and mirror the language as much as possible (while being honest and accurate about your skills and experience).
  • Keep your CV professional and in a simple format – make sure you tailor your cover letter and application to the company and role.
  • Go online and look for details on job specifications for your target position. Make a list of skills required and set yourself some learning goals to tick off all the necessary skills one by one.
  • Don’t be afraid to reach outside your immediate friends and family to other acquaintances and let them know you are looking for new opportunities.
  • Make sure you’ve set your LinkedIn profile to signal that you are “open to opportunities”. Also be sure to use LinkedIn to search for people who are still actively hiring by searching for those that have the headline “I’m hiring” or “We’re hiring” in their profile.
  • Prepare for online interviews using mock interview tools. Even before landing interviews, it can be useful to start practising.
  • Be professional and patient. Always be professional with whoever you are interacting with throughout your search process, this will be remembered. You need to be patient, dedicated and not give up on your search. Candidates need to make sure they are following up appropriately for roles they have applied.
