On Wednesday 23rd of October, 2013, two guest lecturers from Occidental Petroleum Corporation (Oxy), a US based international oil and gas exploration and production company, held a “CV Writing Workshop” at the American Corner at ALHOSN University. Ms. Maria Le Roux, Team Lead, and Mr. Amr Sultan, Director, both at HR and Administration, demonstrated CV writing and interview skills to students and staff.
Oxy is an industry leader in applying advanced technology to boost production and access hard-to-recover reserves. They are also known for their involvement in social responsibility. In an outreach effort to the local community, Oxy approached ALHOSN University for the second time to provide workshops, presentations, internships and employment opportunities.
There have been several collaborations between ALHOSN University and Oxy including securing student and professional internships at the company. Moreover, students who demonstrate good potential are hired on a part-time basis.
