On May 12, MUBS held its fourth annual Job Fair under the auspices and presence of the Minister of Labor, Mr. Sejaan Azzi, at its Hamra Campus.
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees at MUBS, Dr. Hatem Alamy, delivered a welcome speech in the opening ceremony. Dr. Alamy highlighted the significance of organizing such events as a seminal resource for MUBS students who are at the cusp of entering the job market. He also emphasized the importance of MUBS’s innovative majors, partnerships, and international programs that have been created based on the market needs.
The Minister of Labor, Mr. Sejaan Azzi, took the stage afterwards and discussed the importance of higher education attainment in today’s global knowledge economy. He also commended the quality of education at MUBS, in addition to the remarkable effort that the university is dedicating to support its students, both academically and professionally. Mr. Azzi expressed his pleasure to be part of MUBS’s job fair for the second year in a row. He concluded his speech by underscoring that despite all the challenges, the ministry is working hard to prioritize and provide job vacancies for Lebanese graduates.
Following the opening ceremony, students and alumni from MUBS’s different campuses poured into the job fair to take advantage of this great opportunity. Over 30 companies representing a variety of sectors and industries in Lebanon, such as advertising, banking, food, hospitality, health, journalism, printing, education, travel, communication and IT were present around the Hamra campus to receive students’ resumes, provide helpful information, and conduct informal interviews with prospective candidates.
