On-campus employment available to students
An On-Campus Student Employment Fair was held at the Student Center on October 3. The event was attended by a large number of students interested in find part-time jobs on campus. The fair is aimed at creating a platform wherein students and AUS units can network to promote on-campus student employment opportunities.
Working on campus helps students acquire new skills in an office environment, better preparing them for the workplace. The positions offered are funded by the university, and the employers are AUS units, including departments, colleges/schools and administrative areas.
"The beginning of the academic year is an ideal time for our students to learn more about on-campus employment and the opportunities available to them," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "We have invited several AUS units so that students can directly interact with various on-campus employers in one place, gather as much information on the spot and inquire for possible part-time job placement. I encourage our students to take advantage of on campus employment opportunities where they can acquire new skills for their professional development," she added.
According to junior Rihab Badshah, "There were an impressive number of students that turned up looking for on-campus employment and many of them found jobs on the spot. This time, a lot of freshmen and bridge program students also showed interest in the fair. It was a very successful event and I look forward to more such events in the future."
The employment fair gave students a chance to talk to AUS employers to learn about employment
opportunities on-campus, learn how to market themselves to potential employers, understand which skills and experiences increase their chances of securing employment and build a professional network with employers.
The administrative and academic units looking to hire student employees included the Office of Student Affairs, College of Arts and Sciences; School of Business and Management; College of Engineering; College of Architecture, Art and Design; Achievement Academy Bridge Program; Office of Enrollment Management; Office of International Exchange Programs; Library; Public Relations Department; IT Department; Academic Computing; and the Office of the Registrar.
