Youths without ‘professional exposure’ could lose out on jobs, career experts say

Without demonstrating experience of working life and the practical skills gained from part-time jobs and work experience, students could be overlooked for full-time jobs, they say.

ABU DHABI // Career and HR experts have said that employers looking to hire graduates want to see “professional exposure” in the workplace on a candidate’s CV, as well as academic credentials.

Without demonstrating experience of working life and the practical skills gained from part-time jobs and work experience, students could be overlooked for full-time jobs, they say.

"Top academic credentials alone aren't enough to impress employers any more," said Mike Hill, chief executive at Prospects, which runs the UK's leading student and graduate careers advice and opportunities website, prospects.ac.uk. "They want candidates to be able to demonstrate experience of working life, practical skills and to know you can cut it away from the comforts of student life.

“Working part-time, as work experience, or volunteering, are all great ways to help you to stand out and demonstrate your willingness to make things happen, which can make all the difference.”

Zack Abdi, managing director of the human resources consultancy Provectus Middle East, said many youths in the UAE don’t have the “street smart” of their peers in the Western world because of a lack of work experience.

“I, as an employer, know they don’t have many of the life skills or core skills they require for the job,” he said. “People want certain skills and you can only get those skills by working - it is as simple as that.

“It would be wonderful to see all the children get the opportunity to get in the working environment and also be given the opportunity to work as part of a team.”

Mr Abdi feels a lack of career counselling in schools contributes to the problem. Also, if they do get a work experience opportunity, many companies lack the formal structure to engage the intern and show what the working world is like, he said.

“There is no one to properly provide them with the development framework,” he said. “You sit there like a sack of potatoes for three months and finish your assignment and then you are back in the classroom. What did you really learn?”

With youth unemployment and underemployment in the Middle East among the highest in the world and a growing “youth bulge” in the UAE’s population, creating greater work opportunities through part-time job and internships is “critical”, said David Jones, CEO of HR consultancy The Talent Enterprise.

Research carried out by the company suggested many self-awareness and character strengths - critical for youths starting out in their careers - are low in the UAE by international standards.

“In many cases, private-sector employers are less interested in qualifications and increasingly focused on learning agility, resilience, grit, collaboration, self-efficacy, growth mindset and other employability-related character strengths,” said Mr Jones. “Early work experience and internships are critical in this regard.”

Mr Jones said that elsewhere in the world, most students gain some part-time experience by working in the evenings, at weekends or during holidays.

“Without it, the character strengths, employability skills and working values so prized by employers are likely to remain underdeveloped in this region,” he said.

Hamza Zaouali, managing director of Iris Executives, a recruitment company specialising in Emiratisation, said there needs to be a mindset shift to give both Emirati and expatriate youths more “professional exposure”.

He said companies believe there is not a lot of return for the investment when it comes to internships.

“The thing that is frustrating a lot of employers is that they feel they don’t really win anything,” he said. “The internships are one or maybe two months - sometimes just weeks - and by the time you train someone in any job, they are immediately gone.

“Internships haven’t really been promoted as helpful for both sides.”

Plan to boost public schools

A major shake-up of government-run schools was rolled out across the country in 2017. Known as the Emirati School Model, it placed more emphasis on maths and science while also adding practical skills to the curriculum.

It was accompanied by the promise of a Dh5 billion investment, over six years, to pay for state-of-the-art infrastructure improvements.

Aspects of the school model will be extended to international private schools, the education minister has previously suggested.

Recent developments have also included the introduction of moral education - which public and private schools both must teach - along with reform of the exams system and tougher teacher licensing requirements.

'Worse than a prison sentence'

Marie Byrne, a counsellor who volunteers at the UAE government's mental health crisis helpline, said the ordeal the crew had been through would take time to overcome.

“It was worse than a prison sentence, where at least someone can deal with a set amount of time incarcerated," she said.

“They were living in perpetual mystery as to how their futures would pan out, and what that would be.

“Because of coronavirus, the world is very different now to the one they left, that will also have an impact.

“It will not fully register until they are on dry land. Some have not seen their young children grow up while others will have to rebuild relationships.

“It will be a challenge mentally, and to find other work to support their families as they have been out of circulation for so long. Hopefully they will get the care they need when they get home.”

Top investing tips for UAE residents in 2021

Build an emergency fund: Make sure you have enough cash to cover six months of expenses as a buffer against unexpected problems before you begin investing, advises Steve Cronin, the founder of DeadSimpleSaving.com.

Think long-term: When you invest, you need to have a long-term mindset, so don’t worry about momentary ups and downs in the stock market.

Invest worldwide: Diversify your investments globally, ideally by way of a global stock index fund.

Is your money tied up: Avoid anything where you cannot get your money back in full within a month at any time without any penalty.

Skip past the promises: “If an investment product is offering more than 10 per cent return per year, it is either extremely risky or a scam,” Mr Cronin says.

Choose plans with low fees: Make sure that any funds you buy do not charge more than 1 per cent in fees, Mr Cronin says. “If you invest by yourself, you can easily stay below this figure.” Managed funds and commissionable investments often come with higher fees.

Be sceptical about recommendations: If someone suggests an investment to you, ask if they stand to gain, advises Mr Cronin. “If they are receiving commission, they are unlikely to recommend an investment that’s best for you.”

Get financially independent: Mr Cronin advises UAE residents to pursue financial independence. Start with a Google search and improve your knowledge via expat investing websites or Facebook groups such as SimplyFI.
