As the professional world expands and develops, the decision to pursue a particular career takes on an even greater significance.
The Executive Development Centre (EDC) at the Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) in Islamabad organised their annual Career Fair 2017 to showcase career-building opportunities for those considering a professional career in information technology, media houses and social services.
The fair was inaugurated by Campus Head Khusro Pervaiz Khan alongside Executive Development Centre Manager Nadia Zohaib.
SZABIST’s job expo is targeted specifically at university students majoring in business administration, computer science, software engineering, social and development studies and media & communication sciences.
The Career Fair 2017 at SZABIST Islamabad is an annual speed-networking event where employers present students with brief pitches about their companies. They are followed by breakout sessions with students who wish to continue the conversation.
Thanks to digitalisation, a large number of fields are in need of highly educated specialists, and consequently, the number of exhibitors at the fair grew from last year.
Additionally, the changing boundaries between different fields mean that the variety of tasks on offer is constantly changing.
A large number of students from the Bachelors and Masters Programmes of Management Sciences, Computer Science, Social & Development Studies and Media & Communication Sciences interacted with the employers, where companies registered them for their possible induction into their organisations.
