Thirty-two companies joined the silver jubilee edition of the AIT Career Fair organized on 27 March 2019. This included 12 companies participating in the bi-annual event for the first time.
Welcoming the exhibitors, President Dr. Eden Y. Woon described AIT as a great destination to hire potential employees. “AIT students are international in their background and thinking, and beside being fluent in English, they have undergone a rigorous education,” President Woon said. “Our students’ worldview is very broad, and this makes them ideal recruits,” he added. “Moving forward, AIT will become more global as it will have more exchange partners, offer greater internship opportunities, and be home to more visiting professors,” the President said.
Introducing the event, Joan Carla Gonzales, Coordinator, AIT Career Center, informed participants that this was the twenty-fifth edition of the AIT Career Fair, which began in 2006.
Alongside the Career Fair, a research exhibition of posters prepared by AIT students was organized at the same venue, showcasing a record 31 research exhibits. The best poster award was won by Wachiranon Chuenchart of Environmental Engineering and Management, followed by Tina Rodvong of School of Management (second prize), while the third prize was shared by Gautam Dadhich of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems, Anuja Dahal of Food Engineering and Bioprocess Technology, and Apantri Peungnumsai of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems.
