Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Qatar (SFS-Qatar) held its third annual career fair last week, with participation from nearly 20 Qatar-based employers in energy, business consulting, engineering, banking, investment, publishing, research, telecommunications, legal, and government sectors.
Dean Mehran Kamrava said: “This year’s fair was a testament to the quality of our students, and to the health of many of the private companies and government organisations that hire Georgetown students.”
The fair drew some of Qatar’s most prominent international and local employers. A number of the companies present at the career fair also participated in a presentation series designed to provide students with additional information about employment opportunities.
Career development specialist Musfata Taouk from Qatar Telecom (Qtel), one of the seven companies that participated in the presentation series, commented: “This is our first time to participate in Georgetown’s career fair. We are seeking candidates who are highly educated and motivated to join Qtel and Georgetown is known for the high quality of its students, which is why we decided to join the career fair this year.” Students currently enrolled at the SFS-Qatar also attested to the benefits of the career fair.
Companies participating in the 2011 Georgetown Career Fair included ExxonMobil, Shell, Arab Democracy Foundation, Qatargas Operating Company Ltd, Bloomsbury QF Publishing, Hill & Knowlton Inc, Qatar Olympic Committee, FactSet (UAE) LLC, Atkins, Qatar Financial Center Regulatory Authority, Michael Page International, Doha Film Institute, PRTM: Management Consultation, LLC, Katara Cultural Village, US Embassy Foreign Commercial Service, Allen & Overy LLP, Qatar Telecom (Qtel), Allianz Takaful, and Qatar Foundation.
