For the 12th year in a row, Beirut Arab University organized its Job Fair at Beirut Campus under the auspices of the Minister of Labor Camille Abousleiman with the participation of 45 engineering, medical, oil, pharmaceutical, banking, tourism, real estate and educational institutions.
This fair aimed to connect students and graduates with the job market through meeting the representatives of participating institutions. Students presented copies of their curriculum vitae and were introduced to the criteria and conditions required to obtain job opportunities in line with their specializations. The exhibition also provided students with an overview of the experiences of the most prominent business owners who spoke to the students about their career and how to make their way through the job market starting from the university.
After the Lebanese and BAU Anthems, Engineer Sandy Chaaban inaugurated the exhibition, saying, “We, at Beirut Arab University, are accustomed to overcoming the difficulties and confronting the fears that give rise to hope among the youth, so we are keen to dedicate this job to meet their aspirations and ambitions, complementing our mission to build a strong and effective society despite all challenges.”
Head of the Job Fair Committee and Dean of Faculty of Engineering Professor Adel El Kordi spoke of the importance and development of this fair to keep pace with the job market needs and requirements and open up to new institutions and specializations to share the aspirations of our youth.”
Prof. Kordi called for working together with officials to keep abreast of any plans these students propose to encourage the job market to create new jobs, and thanked all those who contributed to the success of the exhibition.
In his speech, BAU President Professor Amr Galal El-Adawi stressed the importance of the exhibition in giving a preliminary idea of the challenges students face in terms of the diversity of opportunities in the job market. “Technological development has led to the adoption of artificial intelligence in many businesses. However, any cancellation in the job market will be met by more new opportunities. We, at Beirut Arab University, always seek to offer new specializations in line with the current developments,” El-Adawi continued.
President El-Adawi toured the exhibition sections with the guests and representatives of the participating companies.
