The Career Counselling Unit provides guidance and support to students towards developing their employability skills and professional competencies through career counseling and advising on matters related to development of their career objectives, goals, or plans. Additionally, the unit periodically follows up on available and potential job vacancies in the public and private sectors and arranges for job interviews for students.
Ahlia University partners with many organizations across all fields in the public and private sectors. Our sector partners assist us by providing internship opportunities; hosting student field trips; helping us with workshops; and liaising over recruitment. In addition, they give support to student research projects; they deliver guest lectures and act as members of our college advisory boards. The Professional Relations Directorate is responsible for creating links between students and the job market and enhancing university-industry collaboration in support of graduate career development and the University’s employability goals.
Our career advising services aim to assist all students, throughout their study period at Ahlia, with their job search skills, identifying and working toward career goals, finding suitable careers or graduate school programs, getting referrals to employers, and boosting networking skills.
All our services are provided through in person meetings and online through email and MS Teams platforms.

CV Preparation Advice
Recruiters spend only 6 seconds scanning each CV. So the very first impression is key. If you submit a neat, properly organized document, you’ll convince the recruiters to spend more time on your CV.
Job Interview Preparation Advice
Preparing for an interview primarily means taking time to thoughtfully consider your goals and qualifications relative to the position and employer.
An Internship programme as defined by the Ahlia INTR 400 course is a structured opportunity to incorporate academic, professional and personal skill development which enables the student to gain a planned and directed learning experience. It enables the student to integrate knowledge gained through their classroom learning with the competencies made available through actual experience in a professional setting.
