Fariz Ismayilzade, Vice-Rector for State, External, and Student Affairs at ADA University, highlighted the opportunities provided to students by the 12th edition of the Career Fair and announced the record number of companies participating this year.

Elkin Nurmammadov, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs at ADA University, emphasised the significant progress made both quantitatively and qualitatively at the Career Fair, noting the existence of various mechanisms for job opportunities between ADA University and employers.

Natiq Haciyev, President of the ADA University Foundation, expressed that the ongoing collaboration between ABB and ADA University over the past 4 years is one of the successful examples of university-private sector relations, stating that these relationships will contribute to increasing the number of students' social projects and their academic development in the future.

Malahat Abdullayeva, director of IBA's Human Resources department, stated that IBA collaborates with many local universities, with ADA University ranking high on the list due to the distinction of its students in education. It's no coincidence that already 50 graduates of ADA University are working at IBA.

During the fair, representatives of the "Big four companies" in Azerbaijan, as well as the Ministries of Energy, Justice, Economy, and Internal Affairs, PASHA Holding, and start-up companies, including banks, tourism, and communication sectors, provided detailed information to fair participants about their activities and career opportunities.
