GU-Q Student Career Services

Career Services offers students and alumni assistance with career planning, job search skill development, on-campus student employment and understanding of the labor market. An annual Career Fair is held in partnership with all Education City branch campuses every February, attracting local employers offering opportunities for all majors. Workshops, employer sessions, and presentations are held throughout the year and are advertised via email and the newsletter to students and alumni.

COVID-19 FAQs & Guidelines

In light of the current situation, with Georgetown University in Qatar moved to Online Instruction, the Career Services Center tries to stay connected to all students and offer more career support. This page is intended to help students answer some of the questions that come up as we learn, intern, and work remotely from our homes.
