About the Event
The semi-annual Career Fair is a one-day
recruiting event that provides a forum for cultivating and
developing productive relationships between AUC graduates
and the corporate world. It aims at integrating employers’
recruiting needs with the skills and qualifications of AUC
graduates. The Fair gives participating companies an opportunity
to build their image on campus among a qualified pool of
AUC students and alumni.
As a leader in university career services
in the Middle East, AUC initiated the Employment Fair in
1986, the first event of its kind in the region at the time.
Around 70% of participating
companies are returning participants, having joined at least
one of the previous Fairs.
Companies registered in the Fair are assigned
booth in the new campus. As a guide for AUCians seeking
employment, the Career Center publishes an Employment Fair booklet which
provides relevant information on the participating companies
and the vacant positions. Corporate representatives are
also encouraged to bring an ample supply of corporate material,
such as brochures, annual reports, and application forms
to be distributed to candidates. Interested students and
alumni apply in person to company representatives at the
Fair or as otherwise indicated in the Employment Fair booklet.
The Employment Fair is NOT a public event; it is restricted to AUC students and alumni by AUC university ID.
