AL-KARAK† CAREER† DEVELOPMENT† CENTER
The Al-Karak Career Development Center at Mu'tah University was established in 2009 as a grant from the Sabeq Program funded by the USAID† to support university students and alumni in all aspects of their career development. They will be provided with career counseling workshops, events, recruiting programs, internships and jobs .
In this unique environment, students are encouraged to integrate their career development with the academic accomplishment. They are urged to engage with the CDC early in their university experience in order to maximize their time at Mu'tah. Just as students are encouraged to develop an advising partnership with their faculty and advisors, so too, they are invited to add CDC staff to their advising team. to train specialists and interns capable of leading and conducting all the center activities.
The expected short-term result of the project is to improve the transition from school to further education to employment for students. This will help provide the skills and opportunity for all young people under the age of 25 to engage in education, training or employment. The expected, long-term result of the project is to increase the number of qualified workforce by providing job matching services.
† The Al-Karak CDC , along with other ongoing initiatives at the university such as the King Abdullah Fund for Development (KAFD) Office for career guidance, Injaz , Queen Rania Center for entrepreneurship, Al-Manar Project - The National Center for the Development of Human Resources /, and Maharat Program the Business Development Center, and many other organizations , will help Mu'tah graduating students in obtaining suitable training and jobs to lead better lives .† Through partnering with these organizations, the CDC will be able to provide comprehensive services that every student can seek.
Faculty at Mutah University, in collaboration with †the CDC staff can better support students in making their career choices. A successful university experience will provide the education and competencies needed to launch students into the world of work and enable them to make successful transitions throughout their future.
Through career guidance, training workshops, jobfairs and many other CDC activities, students from the South will be exposed to various opportunites, aside from working in the public sector, which they would otherwise have little or no access to. Students, including females students, will learn more about available job and entrepreneurship opportunities.
