LUMS Students and Recruiters Network at Annual Career Fair 2023
Lahore, February 4th, 2023: Ranked as the top university in Pakistan by QS Graduate Employability Ranking 2022, LUMS has a strong network of 1,600 recruiting partners that help students find placements. The Career Services Office (CSO) at the University has several programmes in place for supporting students towards their career readiness, exploration, and getting the right job. One such initiative is the annual Career Fair by CSO that aims to provide opportunities to students for gainful employment while strengthening their partnership with existing and prospective employers.
LUMS hosted its milestone annual Career Fair this Saturday with participation from notable organisations across multiple industries. The Career Fair welcomed around 200 national and international reputed organisations. The engagement between students and recruiters included activities such as extensive on-spot screening interviews, seeking information about each other and submission of resumes. Moreover, organisation representatives also counselled students regarding their career choices and job market requirements.
The Dean of the Office of Student Affairs, Dr. Adnan Zahid, talking about the importance of networking opportunities at the fair, shared, “The Career Fair is ever growing, as students get to know about multiple opportunities that different organisations offer to them such as internships, MTO programmes, and jobs. The recruiters get to know about the skillset of our students and the diverse range of programmes that LUMS offers.” The University values its partnership with its recruiting partners that allows its students to explore life-changing prospects, and this collaboration will continue to grow in the years to come.
Students continue to engage with organisations and with the Career Services Office after the Fair as well for career exploration and recruitment, alumni mentorship, organisation visits to campus, students’ visits to company offices, and peer-to-peer guidance.
