Career Counseling & Orientation Services

For University Students

The job market today is as competitive as ever. With a struggling world economy and an excess of labor supply, fresh graduates are having a tough time landing jobs after graduation. Our career counseling experts have designed a number of training workshops to help fresh graduates stand out from the competition and fine-tune their professional approach to add value to an employer and land them better jobs.

For University Career & Orientation Staff

Keeping up with today’s job market trends and needs is a full time job and requires direct access to the corporate world. With extensive experience in recruiting, training, and HR consulting  for companies in the private sector across the MENA region, our trainers are able to train University Career Counselors and Placement Officers on how to prepare their students and alumni for today’s fast-changing job market.
