(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Orpic had a strong presence at the recent career fair organised by Sohar College of Applied Sciences from April 7 to 9.
With the company looking to attract and recruit numbers of university and college graduates throughout the sultanate over the coming years for the three significant projects it has under way, the fair was seen as a good way to expose potential employees to the company's values, activities and the career and training opportunities available. Over 30 private and public sectors companies participated in the three-day career fair, which attracted huge numbers of students and visitors.
Orpic's stand alone had over 2,500 visitors keen to learn more about the company. In addition to the training centre and human Resources staff who were at visitors' diosal, a technical expert was on hand to provide further detail to those interested. The company also provided brochures and leaflets as well as video information.
In May, Orpic is due to announce its new intake of fresh graduates who will be put through a programme that lasts up to 18 months before they officially join the company. The training is extensive with the individuals assigned to various departments and functions within the company. Last year 110 graduates were taken on board, with the number expected to be higher this year.
Sohar career fair forms part of a three event strategy from the company's human resources department, with the third event being the upcoming Jobex Fair in Muscat (April 23 to 26) at which the company hopes to generate more interest among Omani students.
