Employers meet, inform and interview hundreds of potential applicants, while job seekers get the chance to display their skills and make important connections with potential employers, mentors, and peers.

Expressing his views on the occasion, Chancellor of Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology, Mr. Jawaid Anwar said, “The purpose of holding this Job Fair was to facilitate students to meet potential employers in an informal setting. The event allows job seekers to learn more about potential employers and the opportunities available. The focus was on sharing information between organizations and job seekers. It is a way to explore career opportunities within a variety of companies at one location.”

Addressing the Open House, Vice-Chancellor SSUET, Prof. Dr. Vali Uddin said that Job Fair is like speed dating for recruiting. At a set time and place, companies and job seekers meet and try to find out if they’ll match. Job Fair can be considered as a form of public relations for a company. Now students have a wide range of options. Choice of a profession is very important in the career. He advised students to make the best use of this opportunity and convince the industries with their skills.
