On April 22, ADA University's Virtual Employability Week and Career Fair received the 'Best University Employer Partnership' award in the Global Career Services Summit sponsored by Ernst&Young.
The project proposals of these highly important career events were evaluated by the international jury based on multiple criteria: originality, impact, quality of implementation.
"This Award is a highlight of years of successful service and hard work in cultivating future leaders. We strive to expose students to careers at an early stage to ensure their professional preparedness, marketability, and opportunity of enlarging their professional networks before graduation. For that we owe to our local and international partners from Azerbaijan and abroad who hand in hand help us raising and developing talents," said Ms. Gulnur Ismayil, Associate Vice Rector for Student Services and Alumni Affairs.
Virtual Employability Week (April 1-16, 2021) brought together more than 50 high-caliber professionals from 14 companies to hone the skills of 200+ ADA students by sharing their precious, years-long experience.
The Virtual Career Fair (April 15-16, 2021) organized by the ADA University's Career Management Center linked more than 800 students and alumni directly with 120+ companies of 71 local and multinational companies.
This Center has been organizing career events since 2009 to support the transition of students and graduates to a changing labor market.
The Career Management Center has professional and broad links with both ADA talents and local and foreign enterprises, companies, international organizations, and government agencies operating in ten different fields. Students who find internships in diverse institutions through the Center often receive job offers in those institutions.
