COMSATS University Abbottabad Campus Job Fair 23 June 2022 organized by Management Sciences
University Industry liaison plays a vital role in upgradation of academic activities and provision of qualified workforce to the industry. The importance of recruiters invited on campus is also acknowledged by HEC.
Considering this important role of UI Liaison, management sciences department took initiative first of its kind in CUI, Abbottabad campus, under the supervision of Mr. Ubaid Ali Assistant Professor MS Department. A group of students from BBA 4th semester worked as event organizers along with student representatives from other semesters and departments of the university. It took a month for preparations of the event. It was a difficult task and the students stood up to the challenge with great commitment. The most remarkable point about this event was that no financial assistance was sorted from university and the whole event was organized with sponsorships.
21 renowned recruiting organizations from different segments of corporate sector, including automobile, software and IT industry, PTCL, Hospitality industry, and many more joined the job fair making it a diverse hub of representatives from corporate sector. It also ensured that the job possibilities were there for more than one department of university. Worthy HOD MS department Dr. Azizullah Sayyal welcomed the guests. In his speech he appreciated event organizers and also assured the visitors and students that this event will be a regular feature in academic sessions of CUI, Abbottabad in future.
It was a one day event that started at 9:00am and ended 6:00pm. The whole day was very fruitful and great interactive sessions took place. Final semester students and passed out graduates of CUI submitted their CVs and on the spot interviews were also conducted. It is expected that a good number of students will get internships and jobs as well through this event, which is very encouraging. Students from junior semesters also visited different stalls and learned a great deal of practical implementation of knowledge.
Feedback from the visiting companies was very encouraging and we were assured by every company for visiting again. Our visitors were served with tea and working lunch. In a short but graceful closing ceremony, event organizer Mr. Ubaid Ali thanked the visiting companies. After that worthy HOD MS department, Dr. Azizullah Sayyal distributed participation certificates among representatives of visiting companies.
