The lobby of College of the North Atlantic - Qatar (CNA-Q) was teeming with students meeting with prospective employers recently, as the College hosted another hugely successful job fair and career awareness day.

More than 30 of Qatar’s top employers turned out to scout potential talent. For their part, students had the opportunity to see the wide range of opportunities available to them. Leading up to the one-day event, students were given the opportunity to work closely with career advisors at CNA-Q to practice their job pitch skills, receive interview tips and help sharpen their resumes. “This is an excellent opportunity for our students to get a first-hand look at what is available in the marketplace, and to meet with potential employers,” said Associate Vice President, Student Affairs, Aljazzi Hamad Fetais. “The high number of prospective employers in attendance speaks to the interest they have in CNA-Q, and the quality students we produce. Our students are ready to move Qatar toward the QNV 2030.”
