    Dear Recruiter,

    Due to the economic slum coupled with todays constantly evolving environment, the process of talent acquisition has become even more critical. Leading organizations know that exceptional business performance is driven by superior talent and that people are the difference. With so much competition and such limited time, the need to recruit the best resources with the least amount of time and effort has become a necessity. To address all Industry needs including but not limited to recruiting, NUST created the Industry Liaison Office (ILO).

    It is the ILOs mission to provide all employers with a talented pool of resources in the least amount of time and we are determined to facilitate all employers in the recruitment process however possible. With the aim of making NUST graduates the preferred choice for all recruiters, the ILO takes feedback from Industry members on a regular basis and uses the feedback to bring about the necessary change.

    In line with this mission, the ILO has adopted several key initiatives in its work cycle. These include: Employers sessions HR Conferences and Forums Networking Nights Student Development Workshops International Industrial Linkages Recruitment Drives Industrial Tours

    We look forward to working with you!

    Best RegardsTeam ILONUST
