International Baccalaureate (IB) students from The Gulf English School have been working to attract leading names in business and academia in Qatar to the school’s seventh annual Careers Fair, which will take place at the school in Gharaffa on 25 March 2014.

The Fair, which is entirely planned and organised by GES IB students, is sponsored by and will feature organisations including RasGas, Ezdan Real Estate, Al Faisal Holding, Aamal, Baladiya, Al-Ahli Hospital and Gelato, as well as Qatar Foundation and Qatar University.

IB student Dareen Aloufi said:

IB students have been working hard in teams for three months to attract the best international companies and universities in Qatar to participate in the seventh annual GES Careers’ Fair.’

‘As students, we want to display our drive and determination and our decision-making skills, which are important attributes to employers and universities in this demanding 21st Century world. We also want to motivate and inspire younger pupils to follow our lead and work hard to achieve future success. The work behind organising this event is summed up in the GES motto – Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.’

Participation in the fair is open to all organisations in Qatar – they are invited to have a stand and have the opportunity to attract some of Qatar’s brightest and best students to join them. Schools and students from across Qatar can attend and talk face-to-face with future employers and education providers.

The purpose of the Fair is to showcase the skills and talents of GES students to the most high-profile businesses and universities in Qatar, and to further develop the GES pupils’ talents in leadership, teamwork, organization and planning of key events which will support them in their progression to higher education and careers with leading institutions nationally and internationally.
