The Career Services and Internships Office at Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) 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 and Internships Office has strong linkages with national and multinational leading employers, industrialists, government officials and distinguished members of FCCU 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 FCCU’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 FCCU students to become self sufficient in building their own life-long career strategies which can continue well beyond graduation.

The Internships Office contributes to the students personal and professional development by helping students with internship placements and career related experiences that merely complements classroom learning. We provide assistance and guidance to students in receiving attractive internships and establish healthy relationship with students and counsel them for success in their professional careers.

The key objectives of the Internships Office are:

  • To provide internship opportunities for the students of FCCU in organizations related to their majors.
  • Internship opportunity announcements
  • Maintaining student placement relationship with external organizations, institutions, corporations and governmental sectors.
  • To expose the student to professional role models or mentors who will provide the student with support in the early stages of the internship and guidance for the behaviors expected in the intern’s workplace.
  • Organizing various networking events to encourage student participation in the community as volunteers/ushers/organizational ambassadors.

We offer internships in two categories:

  • Credit Internships- Internship Course 498

Students as required by their major have to enroll for the Internship Course according to their course catalogue. Students are required to enroll for credit internships worth 3-6 credit hours, depending upon the Academic Department via EMPOWER. This is exactly like a course registration. The requirements, and grading processes of credit internships (Internship Course 498) follows the procedures and policies approved by the Academic Council, and each academic department may have a different internship policy.

  • Non-Credit Internship

Any enrolled Forman student who meets the eligibility criteria for internship and has the intention of learning, can take the non-credit internship. No student can claim any grade or credit hours after having a non-credit internship

Applying for Internship (Non-Credit) 

  • All students for internship are required to submit their CV to the of internships office in the given format.
  • Prior to the commencement of the internship, department of Internships will inform students about the host organization for internship.
  • Recommendation letter would be issued to the students of the assign organization from manager internships.
  • It would be recommended to the students that ideally office hours for working as intern is between 9:00AM to 5:00PM so that they should keep in mind these timing before registration of any other course too.
