The Career Services Office at Forman Christian College aims to provide comprehensive guidance and counseling to its students and graduates on career development. It provides consistent assistance to students in finding attractive jobs and internships.

The Career Services Office has strong linkages with national and multinational leading employers, industrialists, government officials and distinguished members of FCC alumni. Throughout the year, it organizes a wide range of on-campus activities such as career exploration lectures, recruitment drives, resume development and career building workshops, employer-hosted information sessions, mock interviews and job fairs.

Job fairs facilitate students to meet prospective employees from leading companies and submit their resumes for relevant job and internship opportunities. During such events, many recruiters conduct on-the-spot interviews and share information about their recruitment policies, company profiles and hiring procedures with the students.

The CSO also produces an Annual Employer’s guide which is sent to numerous organizations in Pakistan. Each guide consists of a brochure describing FCC’s programs, a list of graduates with their majors and specializations, and a CD of all the graduates resumes.

All these activities are designed to develop FCC students to become self sufficient in building their own life-long career strategies which can continue well beyond graduation.
