AUK Hold its 11th Annual Career Fair

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) held its 11th annual Career Fair for AUK students on April 14, 2014. Each year, employers from leading companies around Kuwait visit AUK to discuss future employment opportunities with AUK students. This initiative is part of AUK's commitment to provide its students with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with future employers and explore career options. During the fair, students interacted with different businesses and were given with advice on their resumes from various corporate representatives and professionals.

The Career Fair was organized by AUK's Career Services and Wellness Center (CSW) and took place in the AUK Auditorium, where 19 local and multinational companies from around Kuwait met and spoke with AUK students about possible career paths. The Career Fair was open to AUK students and graduates and was attended by around 350 people. This year's event was sponsored by the platinum sponsors RSM Albazie & Co. and Zain; the gold sponsors Habchi & Chaloub, KAMCO, Alghanim Industries and Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait; and the silver sponsors M.H. Al Shaya and Mohammed Nasser al Hajery Ltd.

AUK President, Dr. Nizar Hamzeh, inaugurated the Fair with the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony. In his opening speech, he welcomed all participants and thanked sponsors. President Hamzeh explained that the Career Fair was a renewal of a partnership with both the private and public sectors and also the larger community in Kuwait. He added that AUK prides itself on providing students with not only technical competency in their professional fields but also the soft skills of critical thinking, problem solving, communications, leadership, integrity, civic responsibility and teamwork.

Jason R. Sullivan, Director of Career Services and Wellness, declared the 2015 Career Fair another huge success. He noted that it was encouraging to see so many alumni attending the Fair, not as students, but as professionals representing their companies, and that the Career Services and Wellness Center was pleased with the positive feedback about students received from employers.
