First Ever “Engineers Job Fair” to be held in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Pakistan Engineering Council is going to hold the first ever Engineers Job Fair of KP on 3rd June, 2015 at Shiraz Arena, Peshawar. This job fair will provide an opportunity to young and professional engineers of KP & FATA to access the leading local and multinational companies. This event is the first of its kind in which more than 18 multinational companies from Middle East & Saudi Arabia will be participating. Apart from these multinationals, 22 local companies from almost all engineering disciplines will also be taking part.

Pakistan Engineering Council has become an influential and effective voice, which speaks for the engineering profession as a whole in the country. It forms an effective bridge between Government, industry and education. Some of the remarkable initiatives of PEC include Signing of Washington Accord for mobility of Pakistani Engineers at International Level, Health Insurance for Engineers, Best Final Year Project Award at Universities, CPD Programmes in Professional Engineering Bodies, National Engineering Safety Code, and Academy of Engineers to give employment to Young Engineers.

For the Job Fair in KP, the PEC is facilitating the students by providing them a Web Portal (http://jobfair2015.pec.org.pk/) where they can upload their credentials and get a standardized CV. The event is open to all the engineers who have registered and they will get a chance to be interviewed and selected on merit. More than 3000 engineers have already registered themselves for this event and it is expected that the number may reach 5000.

In this event, the engineers will get an opportunity to broaden their professional network and interact with Multinational and Local Job Providers. The companies will also benefit from this event by getting access to KP’s talented & skilled engineers, enhancing their corporate image and building last longing relationship with engineering community of this region. This event will serve as a bridge between the engineers and potential employers. This initiative is yet another achievement of Pakistan Engineering Council which has been continuously striving for the betterment of its Engineering Community and has been arranging such events time to time.
