A career fair was organized on campus February 9, 2016 with the objective of facilitating interaction between the students and companies from various industries in the UAE in light of the upcoming summer internships and placements at IMT Dubai. More than 20 companies participated in the event with representatives freely engaging with students, providing them essential information and valuable insights into companies’ expectations from interns and prospective job seekers. The students found this exercise extremely helpful in preparing them for the Interview Week which will be held from February 15.
“We are very happy with the turnout and level of interest from employers. One HR Manager told me he was going back to his director to ask for more headcount because of the quality of candidates he met. We look forward to placing a good number of our students through this process.” Michael Todd, Head of Career Services and Corporate Relations.
