30,000 fresh TVTC graduates find employment
The Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) announced here on Sunday that it had contributed to providing 30,000 jobs to fresh graduates during the training course last year.
According to Deputy Governor Rashid Al-Zahrani, 26,000 male and female graduates from various technical colleges and training institutes were given jobs through TVTC’s employment bureaus across the Kingdom.
“Graduates of the TVTC are in high demand by private sector firms which offered 26,264 job opportunities during last year’s training period while both the public and military sectors provided another 2,985 opportunities in addition to 234 civil service jobs,” Al-Zahrani said.
The official added that with the conclusion of memorandums of understanding for employment with various firms, the graduates were also offered a further 540 career opportunities in 355 public and private sector companies.
He pointed out that TVTC’s main role is to train the national cadre for jobs but through its work with employment departments in its various colleges, it is able to assist graduates in seeking suitable jobs.
Other programs, he added, prepare graduates for the labor market and are held at the end of each training phase. There are also career meetings within the training units. A career website, which is an electronic channel of communication between graduates and those interested in employment, also helps the newly trained work force.
He continued: “The abundance of career opportunities available indicate that TVTC’s programs and disciplines are aligned with the labor market in the Kingdom.”
He added that this confirms that the TVTC is committed to develop its programs constantly to meet the needs of the Saudi labor market.
