The Director of RAK Human Resource Development Authority, Dr. Mawaz Al Mutawa, said that their list of unemployed UAE nationals in Ras Al Khaimah shows that 3,000 graduates, including 1,100 male graduates, are still looking for jobs despite the fact that many had completed their studies a couple of years ago.

He added that the HRDA along with other departments concerned had made efforts to find jobs for them, but due to the limited job opportunities in Ras Al Khaimah, not many could get employment. The issue of unemployment needs urgent attention, said the official.
