All you need to know in a couple of minutes
If you are not a blueblood, haven’t won the lottery, don’t have celebrity parents, and are not heir apparent to the family fortune... chances are you WILL need to find a job for a living.
Trouble is, because of the economic turmoil that financial institutions helped create while tinkering with the economy, employment opportunities are as scarce as the tiger population in India.
This has made it extremely challenging for students and fresh graduates to find meaningful employment. But help is around...
InternsME is the UAE’s professional employment network that helps build career opportunities for the youth in the region.
Now, you’re probably stuck in a Catch 22 situation... You can’t find a job without work experience, and you can’t gain work experience without a job.
And if you don’t have any wasta, an uncle, cousin, friend or neighbor, to offer you a job once you graduate, you become one of thousands of other graduates fighting over the few jobs around.
So how do you get noticed and hired?
That’s where we come in.
InternsME is the UAE’s first Video Resume (Visume) career portal, connecting you to employers directly, for internships, traineeships, freelance, temp and full-time job opportunities.
We have an employment network that’s on the lookout for students and fresh graduates throughout the year. Our employers know you don't have work experience and that it’s OK. They are looking for fast learners with a great personality, confidence and communication skills - candidates they can train, mould and absorb into their companies.
All you need to do is register with us, complete your profile and upload a 2-minute video introducing yourself. We also have a built in feature so that you can record your Visume through our website and directly onto your profile.
Your Visume and profile then become visible to actual decision makers across the region like CEO’s, GM’s, business owners, HR Managers and Department heads who will contact you directly whenever a vacancy arises.Our powerful search filters help you find opportunities related to your degree.
And you also get notified whenever a new job that matches your profile is posted, you can apply in a matter of seconds since your resume is automatically created when you build your profile.
Additionally, as a registered member, you gain free access to training programmes, professional courses and certifications organised to help you equip yourself with the practical skill-sets required for the workforce.
So, to get started just follow these steps:
1. Simply register and complete your profile: It’s FREE and takes about 10 mins.
2. Make sure you complete 100% of your profile (which includes loading your video resume): This ensures you show up on ALL employer searches.
3. Wait for employers to contact you: You can also apply directly for opportunities that are posted by employers.
That totally depends on you... InternsME will help you stay visible with top employers across the region.
How fast you get your first opportunity, will depend on how you stand out of the crowd with your video resume, when you registered, your specific degree and major, your availability dates etc.
Our employers are constantly looking through video resumes, handpicking candidates that match vacancies in their organizations. So if you want to grab the attention of an employer, make sure that you show your best side in your video resume.
The good news is that as long as your profile is visible, employers will be able to access it and contact you whenever they find something that matches your profile.
Firstly, because its FREE.
Secondly, it only takes about 10 minutes to register and to complete your profile. So basically, a little of your time could change your life.
So, the sooner you register, the sooner your profile will be accessible to employers in our network. Early birds get priority!
Profiles with Video Resumes (Visumes) show up on ALL our employer searches. So you basically double your chances of being selected for an interview.
Our employers are always on the look out for candidates with a great personality, confidence, attitude and communication skills - something that will be evident in your Visume. They are reviewing Visumes every day, so make sure you have one... and that you are at your best.
Your Visume will help you stand out and get the attention of employers you need to kick-start your career.
With over 60,000 students graduating from the region each year, you not only have to compete for jobs with your fellow classmates but with an experienced workforce too.
Most students find themselves stuck in a catch-22 situation at this stage... They can’t find jobs if they have no work experience, and they can’t get work experience without a job.
Many also feel that without any wasta or connections, it becomes next to impossible to even find an opportunity let alone get some face-time with potential employers.
A university degree, though very important, is not always able to give students the practical experience needed for the working world. It’s like learning martial arts through a text book.
Internships are probably the best solution in such cases. Not only do they help you gain the valuable work experience that employers ask for, but help you enter companies where you can build valuable contacts and meet potential employers. In many cases, the companies that you intern with, may offer you a permanent job themselves.
Here’s the shortlist of internship benefits that top our list:
Whether you are still pursing your degree or have recently graduated, there’s never been a better time to undergo a "Work Experience Programme" with InternsMe, and find an internship programme that suits you.
