AUK Hold its 12th Annual Career Fair

AUK held its 12th annual Career Fair for AUK students on April 12, 2016. 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 25 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 300 people. This year's event was sponsored by the platinum sponsors Boubyan Bank and Gulf Bank; the gold sponsors KAMCO and Alghanim Industries; and the silver sponsors Yiaco Medial Company, Bloovo Middle East FZ-LLC, Kout Food Group, and Microsoft Gulf.

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 said "Today, we renew explained that the Career Fair was a renewal of our partnership with both the private and public sectors and also the larger community in Kuwait. This partnership is based on shared responsibilities. For you is to attract qualified employees and for us is to ensure that our graduates are distinguished in their education and that you are attracting the greater number of them." He also added that "AUK prides itself for 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 that are necessary for any job performances."

Abir Tannir Itani, Career and Personal Counselor at AUK, accompanied Dr. Hamzeh throughout his visit to the booths. She noted that the fair this year covered almost all the majors offered by AUK. Companies' attended were spread on a wide field spectrum: banking, consumer business/retail, financial, healthcare, sports and wellness, governmental, non-governmental organizations, recruitment, research, advertising, and training. It was encouraging also to see AUK Alumni representing their companies at the fair and meeting current and graduating students.
