AUS and P&G strengthen capacity building initiative
As part of its efforts to provide opportunities for its students and alumni in obtaining employment opportunities, American University of Sharjah (AUS) received Procter & Gamble (P&G), a global leader in consumer goods, for an on-campus recruitment visit on May 15. A delegation of 15 senior executives from P&G spent a full day on campus meeting and interviewing students to discuss potential career opportunities.
The visiting team expressed their keen interest in expanding the talent pool from AUS and have worked closely with the AUS team over the past year to put a new recruitment procedure in place to facilitate the application process for AUS students and graduates.
The step comes as part of a year-round partnership where AUS and P&G have worked closely to organize and deliver capacity-building initiatives that identify talented AUS students, develop their skills and prepare them for life after graduation.
"We highly value our well-established partnership with AUS, as well as the quality of its students and graduates," said Bakr Darwish, Associate Director Human Resources, Arabian Peninsula & Pakistan at P&G.
"We have facilitated the recruitment process for both AUS students and graduates by sending a delegation of up to 15 senior P&Gers to bring the test assessment and series of interviews to the AUS campus, thus making it more convenient for the applicants," added Darwish.
