USIU-Africa Career Fair 2023
Our Annual Career Fair exists as a platform for on-campus employer engagement consisting of talks and on-ground company set-up.

Why USIU-Africa
Quality is the hallmark of all USIU-Africa programs which are developed to produce students with a clear understanding of their role in impacting change in an increasingly dynamic global environment. The USIU-Africa graduate pool comprises students who possess the professionalism, self-discipline, adaptability, and flexibility necessary to excel in the work environment. Recruiting from this talent pool will also contribute to your organization’s multi-culturalism as we have an international student population of 70+ nationalities.

What sets USIU-Africa Students Apart?

  • Multicultural Perspective - The University’s mission includes a strong commitment to providing students with a global understanding and a multicultural perspective.
  • Technologically Savvy - USIU-Africa students are trained to be able to meet technological challenges in the workplace.
  • Smart and Well-trained Students - The students are highly motivated and self-driven with an emphasis put on self-confidence and teamwork. Competency in critical, creative, and quantitative thinking, writing, and speaking skills are reinforced in the curriculum.
  • Articulate and Equipped to Lead - Through our Student Affairs activities we ensure students have opportunities to enhance their leadership ability while participating in sports and club activities.
  • Well-developed analytical skills stemming from an educational journey rife with stimulating group assignments and individual research projects cutting across industry challenges.

The Placement & Career Services (PACS) department exists to prepare students for the transition from college to career. The services offered can be categorized into three core functions:

  • Training – Employability and job search training workshops on areas such as CV and cover letter writing, interview skills, locating opportunities, and personal branding.
  • Career advising – This may be one on one or group advising on topics including choice of major, career options, and job search pointers.
  • Partnerships – Employers and industry professionals are our key partners, especially HR professionals who are the main contacts in organizations with whom we interact directly. These linkages are key in supporting our programs such as mentorship, class talks, recruitment drives, and Career Fairs.

At the Placement and Career Services Office (PACS), we are focused on engaging our industry partners in the following areas:
Recruiting is your direct link to reaching students for employment and internship opportunities. Take advantage of our online job portal, Careerlink, where you can post jobs and receive applications directly. The system can send alerts to students on the platform when a new opportunity is posted. You can speak to us directly for urgent recruitment or specially targeted requests.

On-campus interviews
On-Campus Interviews allow you to meet with many USIU-Africa students in one day. We are flexible, allowing for half or full-day schedules. To make your visit as simple as possible, let us help you develop and maintain your job or internship posting and use a venue at PACS for the interview.

Our structured mentorship program is flexible and allows the opportunity for a one on one or group mentoring for a period of six months to one year, which is aligned with the schedules of the mentor.

Guest Lectures and skills training
Professionals from different industries are invited through the Career Services office to share their valuable insights from their extensive experiences in entrepreneurship and employment, on issues or challenges faced, and how they dealt with them. Participating in such a session on campus helps build your organization’s brand among the students. This individualized plan will allow you to attract and engage the right candidates for your positions. This opportunity will also allow you to share your company's success, culture, and why students should work for you.

Sponsor a program
These are co-branded career development programs based on the different years of study. We welcome organizations to sponsor a program and support the next workforce generation as they achieve other organizational goals.
