Burj Khalifa a 'name to reflect greatness'

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, opens the tallest building in the world and reveals its new name: Burj Khalifa.

DUBAI // In a glittering ceremony punctuated with skydivers and fireworks, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, tonight officially opened the tallest building in the world and also revealed its new name. The tallest tower in the world, its feet anchored in the UAE and its crown floating in the clouds, was inaugurated in an eruption of fireworks last night. In a theatrical twist worthy of a memorable night, the skyscraper received a new name: Burj Khalifa. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, President of the UAE, was not among the hundreds of dignitaries who attended the event, but it is his name that will be affixed to the tallest building ever built. Sheikh Mohammed told the cheering crowds that the "Burj Khalifa" name was one that "reflected greatness". The glass-and-steel structure is now, officially, the tallest in the world, at 828 metres, and will welcome tourists from today. A multimedia presentation riveted thousands of spectators who gathered at the base of the tower, as well as millions who watched on television. The presentation featured 10,000 pyrotechnics devices and a show so spectacular that the tower appeared to be exploding. The tower's height was later confirmed by the developer, Emaar. The final height had been kept a secret until the inauguration. The number of floors to be inhabited was left at "more than 160". Motorists parked their vehicles on Sheikh Zayed Road and all along the tower to take pictures of an unforgettable event.

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.
