“We’re looking for students from any discipline, but the most important aspect for us is the right mindset. Candidates need to be motivated self-starters. We have a comprehensive training programme that teaches new hires everything they need to know, but the right attitude is key,” said Hamza Zaouali, managing director of Iris Executives.

Organised by the Student Affairs team, the Career Fair coincided with the launch of CUD’s new online Job Portal, established in partnership with the university’s strategic jobs partner, Bayt.com. The Job Portal provides a one-stop shop for students and graduates of CUD to access information on part-time work, graduate jobs and internship opportunities, and represents an important strategic development in CUD’s commitment to facilitating and accelerating graduates’ journey into the world of work.

Michael Todd, Work Placement and Career Services manager at CUD, said, “The Career Fair is an invaluable opportunity for our students to meet potential employers and showcase their knowledge and skill sets. I received a lot of positive feedback from the employers who are now faced with the challenge of how to narrow down their candidate lists.”
