Career Day is an annual career exploration event that brings together students and professionals in a one-day career education forum. The day provides a setting where accomplished career professionals meet with their potential workforce and disseminate information about the career, potential career paths, in addition to required education and skills for various careers. It serves as an eye-opener to students on potential career options and links them to representatives from various careers. Whether a freshman hesitant between majors or a senior confused between possible career tracks, this informative event has an answer for the typical career questions AUC students ask.  

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm

To mitigate the spread of the virus while continuing to provide AUC students with essential access to professional experience to get an edge in the global market, Virtual Career Day will be held online on AUC Connect. Professionals will meet with students in separate zoom rooms to answer their questions accessible from AUC Connect.

*The Career Day is NOT a public event; it is restricted to enrolled AUC students studying towards a bachelor’s, master’s or PhD degree and alumni holding AUC academic degrees.
