The Department of Student Services held its Online Weekly Career Development Session on January 27, 2021, with AUIS alumni Brwa Ahmed, owner of Fitneess Gym in Sulaimani;  Shnyar Fayaq of Vim Foundation; and Hevar Bahadean of Maze App.
 
The three panelists discussed how their AUIS education shaped them and prepared them for their careers after graduation. "Aside from language skills...AUIS shapes your character and prepares you for work," Shnyar said.
 
Hevar offered three important tips for job-seeking students on how to stand out among other candidates, urging students to research the company they are applying to; prepare well for the interview; and keep their CVs clear and concise.
 
And Brwa urged local companies and organizations in the region to recognize the value of their employees as well as focus on developing business ethics. 
 
The Department of Student Services launched its Online Weekly Career Development Workshop series on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 to help prepare AUIS students to launch their careers on the right foot once they graduate.
