AUK Holds its 13th Annual Career Fair

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) held its 13th annual Career Fair on April 11, 2017. Each year, employers from leading companies across Kuwait visit AUK to discuss future employment opportunities within their establishments to AUK students. This initiative is part of AUK's commitment to providing its students with opportunities to meet face-to-face with future employers and explore possible career options. During the fair, students spoke with different professionals and were offered advice on how to apply for jobs.

The Career Fair was organized by AUK's Counseling Center and took place in the AUK Auditorium, where 22 local and multinational companies in Kuwait met and spoke with AUK students about possible career paths they could pursue. The Career Fair was open to AUK students and graduates and offered a wide spectrum of full-time employment and internship opportunities. This year’s event was sponsored by AEA Consulting and Alghanim Industries (Platinum Sponsors); and KAMCO Investment Company K.S.C. and Ali Abdulwahab Al-Mutawa (Gold Sponsors).

AUK President, Dr. Earl (Tim) Sullivan, inaugurated the Fair with the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony and a tour of the fair, through which he discussed with the participating organizations their job offerings and required student qualifications.

Dr. Sullivan emphasized the importance of the Annual Career Fair as a venue for students to interact with potential employers and explore skills, personality traits, and academic qualifications that employers look for. According to Dr. Sullivan, such events provide students with new perspectives and allow them to think of the wider range of career options available throughout their career paths. “We need to get students ready - as we put it - for the first job, the last job and every job in between because things will change. So, we are not preparing only for an interview for the first job, but for the whole career.”

Dr. Sullivan also expressed that members of the Counseling Center are available around the year to advise AUK students. “Students can visit the center anytime and ask questions about opportunities available and how to prepare to apply for jobs. A lot of young people do not know how to prepare for a job application or interview. Our counselors there are available to give guidance and assistance to those students,” he explained.
