Cairo – Ain Shams University celebrated the inauguration of two new Career Development Centers funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in coordination with the American University in Cairo (AUC). These Centers aim to build the capacity of career guidance professionals at two faculties at Aim Shams University and to develop a generation of career educated graduates who possess the skills to meet the demands of today’s job market.

“AUC is proud to partner with Ain Shams University to bring their smart, talented, and ambitious students the kinds of skills that permit them to enter the labor market with confidence and find suitable jobs,” said AUC President Dr. Lisa Anderson. “This is a benefit not only for the individual students, but for their families, their employers, and the Egyptian society as a whole.  We are grateful for the support and funding of USAID for this project and for the enthusiasm of our partners at Ain Shams University.”
