Students can benefit from one to one support, exclusive access to vacancies, skills workshops, networking events and so much more. Middlesex University Dubai has a strong database of excellent employers who advertise opportunities with us throughout the year – some of which are exclusive to our students.
Students can take advantage of tailored skills workshops based on their programme of study – enabling them to learn and develop the fundamental skills required to be successful in their chosen field. Many industry experts attend and lead these workshops – providing excellent employer engagement opportunities.
The CES also provides one to one CV sessions, opportunities to discuss available career paths, career planning and goal setting, profile building, job search strategy, and mock interview sessions.
The CES supports students by providing them with advice on their career path and the steps they need to take to be successful. This includes dealing with any uncertainties or issues when dealing with career decisions, discovering individual interests and skills, professional skill development, and preparation for postgraduate study.
The CES organises events and workshops where students can network with potential employers and key players from their chosen industry.
Employer Engagement events seek to introduce students to industry leaders to enable them to develop greater insight into their field – along with key tips and advice.
Networking Sessions enable students to network and form relationships with professionals – as well as the opportunity to ask questions and develop a greater insight into the market.
Programme specific Career Days are held throughout the year to allow students to meet with potential employers, sit in talks with key individuals from the industry, get advice and top tips on how to succeed in the field, and the opportunity to discuss internships and job opportunities.
Students can expect to receive advance notification of these events via their student email and the University’s social media accounts.
Work experience is a great way for students to get an insight into their chosen career path and what it’s like to be within a working environment. The CES helps students to find prospective opportunities for work experience and offers advice on how to secure these.
Internships are ‘formal’ work experience and are typically full-time and run throughout the summer months. They are aimed towards students in their final year of study who have amassed skills and knowledge during their programme and are looking to apply this to a real world environment. The University’s Summer Internship Programme gives students the opportunity to complete an internship between May and August.
