The CDC hosts many career-related events each year, giving students the chance to explore different industries, learn about their options, and network with potential employers.

More than 80 organizations like Google, McKinsey & Company, CNN, and Goldman Sachs exhibit at the biannual Opportunities Fair. And organizations like Louvre Abu Dhabi, UNHCR, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), and Bosch attend the intimate Employer Sessions every week.

These networking events create the space for casual conversations with professionals, and workshops help students build the skills to navigate these relationships well.
