ACity Career Fair 2024

Academic City host top companies for 2024 Career Fair

Academic City University College marked another milestone in its commitment to preparing students for the professional world by hosting over 50 top multinational and indigenous companies for its 2024 Career Fair. The fair provided an excellent opportunity for the university’s highly skilled students to learn more about the job market and connect with employers who are actively seeking the right candidates for internship recruitment opportunities.

Since the inaugural fair in 2019, our graduates’ employment rate and the availability of internship opportunities for current students have been positive. Presently, the university’s statistics show that 94% of graduated students are currently actively employed or pursuing advanced education.

This success is attributed to the proactive initiatives spearheaded by the Career Services Department, offering a range of career counseling and job-readiness programs to ensure students are well-prepared and capable of effectively communicating their skills to potential employers.

In addition to meeting with potential employers, students also participated in career-related workshops. These sessions are designed to provide students with the tools and resources they need to succeed in their job search and future careers.

Academic City remains focused on providing a world-class education that aligns with industry expectations. The university’s rigorous and cutting-edge curriculum guarantees that its graduates are prepared to face complex issues, promote innovation, and make a positive impact in their respective fields.
