Apart from affording an excellent learning and grooming experience to its students during the course of their respective degree programmes, National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) also strives to enhance placement opportunities for its students through organising a series of Job Fairs annually across various major cities of Pakistan. After the success of Lahore NUST Job Fair held in the penultimate week of February, NUST Placement Office organised a 2-day Job Fair in the federal metropolis on March 2 and 3, 2020, to provide a rendezvous point for students to present themselves to their prospective employers and enable the latter to address their human resource needs.
On the second day, Mr Muhammad Ahmed, President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI); and Mr Malik Sohail, Chairman Coordination and Chief Coordinator Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI), graced the occasion as Chief Guests. Over 90 firms from Defence, Manufacturing, IT, FMCG, and others, showed up on Day 2 of the Islamabad Job Fair, to recruit students from the disciplines of Engineering, IT, Biosciences, and Architecture. These included National Foods Pvt Ltd, Master Textiles & Ceramics, Royal Airport Services, MTBC, Affinity, Allied Contractors, Fazal Steel Mills, to name a few.
The Chief Guests extolled NUST for presenting its dynamic student pool to the job market and appreciated the industry for turning out in large numbers to interview and employ students from the county's top-notch Engineering & Technology university. Around 1900 students from NUST constituent Schools and Colleges located in Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Risalpur availed the opportunity.
