Industry recruiters engage with AUS students and alumni at Career Fair
American University of Sharjah (AUS) students and alumni continue to be in high demand, with more than 50 local, regional and multinational organizations seeking talent for full-time and internship positions at this week’s AUS Career Fair.
Held on March 16 and 17, the Career Fair provided AUS students and alumni with the exclusive opportunity to meet representatives from top employers interested in recruiting talented AUS students and graduates as either full-time employees or interns.
“AUS prides itself in building valuable professional relationships with industry and corporate leaders. This is a priority for us to ensure that our students and graduates can benefit from great internship and job placement opportunities,” said AUS Chancellor Dr. Susan Mumm.
“The presence of leading companies is a true reflection of the confidence the industry has reposed in AUS students and graduates. We are proud to develop the talents, skills and knowledge of the region's best and brightest young minds by helping prepare them for future careers,” she said.
As one of the most highly anticipated events held on campus, the three-day event began with the Careers Forum, which gave students and alumni valuable opportunities to hear from government, industry and academic leaders, and benefit from their insights on developing the skills of the future to succeed in the job market. The Career Fair was held on campus on March 16 and online on March 17.
The event was inaugurated by Dr. Juan Sanchez, AUS Provost and Chief Academic Officer, who said: “During the AUS Career Fair, students will have a first-hand experience of how to prepare for applying for jobs and the interview process. Prior to the event, many must have researched the visiting companies, worked on their resumes, and prepared for potential interviews. These are the first steps our students and fresh graduates are taking into the real world and the Career Fair provides invaluable experience.”
For participating companies, the Career Fair is a valuable opportunity to recruit new employees from AUS’ pool of highly skilled students and graduates. Those participating include PwC, Noon, P&G, Emaar, Al Futtaim, Amazon, L’Oréal, Schlumberger, Visa, Monitor Deloitte, du, Chalhoub Group and other renowned brands from a wide range of industry sectors, including retail, energy, banking and finance, architecture, property development, telecommunications and more.
Speaking on the occasion, Rania Morsi, Director of the Office of Advancement and Alumni Affairs, said, “At AUS, we believe tomorrow matters, and preparing our students for the future workplace is vital. Opportunities like the Careers Forum and Career Fair help our students and recent graduates make important connections with potential employers. We are grateful to our partners in the private and public sectors for participating in these events.”
