IBA Career Fair 2020 and Career Counselling Clinics

February 12, 2020: The IBA Alumni and Placement Society in collaboration with the IBA Career Development Center hosted the IBA Career Fair 2020 sponsored by Jubilee Life Insurance and Martin Dow at the IBA Karachi Main Campus.

Through partnership with over 120 companies and more than 400 company representatives along with a tremendous footfall of approximately 4000 students of all programs and batches, the IBA Career Fair 2020 was a huge success.

The IBA CDC invited professionals from diverse fields to conduct Career Counselling Clinics at the IBA Career Fair 2020, which was attended by over 150 students and around 35 advisers.

The registration process for advisers and advisees both began well in-advance of the event, where experts and students were asked to select a suitable time for their sessions. These one-on-one counselling sessions helped students gain valuable and practical advice regarding their career decisions and resume building and expand their knowledge with useful industry insights. Students were able to explore career options, discuss their plans in great detail and network with professionals and functional heads of various companies.

The advisees particularly appreciated the guidance they received on how they could align their identity with their goals to excel in their respective fields and the personalized resume building and interview tips shared by their advisers. In parallel, the advisers liked the focused and determined approach of the students, which was evident in their plans and queries, along with the personalized nature of the sessions.

"I would like to convey profound gratitude the IBA CDC and Career Fair '20 team for organizing a superbly successful event and giving me a chance to be part of the event. I enthusiastically look forward for long term volunteer based contributions in any possible capacity for the IBA," remarked Ms. Insiya Abbas, HR Lead of VentureForce Global and Adviser at the Career Counselling Clinics.
