Employer Sessions and Workshops
Career Tuesdays have been a longstanding tradition where we connect students with diverse career options in a professional and light environment. Students get exposed to various career challenges and opportunities of climbing the corporate ladder, succeeding as an entrepreneur, becoming a professor or researcher, emerging as a consultant, and beyond! At Career Tuesdays, conveniently organized in lunch breaks, students meet industry leaders, experts, alumni, and faculty to refine their career goals and get the right exposure to develop their network. Since 2019, we have organized 20+ successful events, and we are proud to have hosted representatives from Siemens, Emerson, Henkel, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, Aramex, KPMG, McKinsey, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HSBC, Thales, LinkedIn, KPMG, du, Exxon Mobile, GE Aviation and more.
RIT Dubai regularly hosts two career fairs per year: one in Fall and one in Spring. This is a key event where students and alumni can meet employers, have short interviews to make the first impression in the hiring process. We conduct career fairs online and in person, and before the event, we provide Career Fair preparation workshops and top tips for students which helps them maximize theirs chance to land the positions they are aiming for. Returning corporate partners, amongst them Emerson, Siemens, KPMG, Aramex, Hira Industries, Axiom, KPMG, Engie Copley, Schneider Electric, Schindler, Bosch, appreciate students and alumni preparedness to embark on their career journeys.
