Ranked at top in graduate employability in Pakistan by QS Employability Rankings, 95% of LUMS 2022 graduates were employed within 6 months. The dedicated efforts of the LUMS Career Services Office (CSO) and University’s 1,800 strong network of recruiting partners plays a pivotal role in this. The Annual Career Fair, hosted by the CSO, is instrumental in connecting leading employers with LUMS’ diverse population of students from various disciplines. Over 200 nationally and internationally reputed organisations participated this year at the LUMS Annual Career Fair 2024 to engage with 1000+ students.
While meeting with the partnering organisations, Dr. Ali Cheema, Vice Chancellor, LUMS, highlighted, “I would like to welcome all the national and multinational organisations to LUMS for the Career Fair 2024. This serves as an invaluable platform for our students to connect with potential employers, explore diverse career paths, and lay the foundation of their professional journey. We believe that engaging with industry experts will not only open doors to exciting opportunities, but also empower our students to thrive in a dynamic and competitive global landscape.”
The LUMS Career fair continues to be a platform that provides opportunities to students to interact with varied employers and find out about hiring practices as well as placements. The milestone event features several activities including extensive on-spot screening interviews, information about career options, and submission of resumes. Representatives of companies present on-ground counsel the students regarding their career choices and job market requirements.
In addition to the Annual Fair, the Career Services Office (CSO) at LUMS has over 15 programmes in place for supporting students towards their career readiness and job exploration. These include alumni mentorship, recruitment drives at the campus, student visits to company offices, and engaging students for peer-to-peer guidance, throughout their academic journey. LUMS plays a key role in setting high standards of academics and producing professionals who stand out among counterparts from universities across the country.
