How it was, EXPO-2017 with the impressions of Madina Kaisarova 

   Hi everyone! Each summer I keep saying «that it was my best summer» and approaching to the end of summer 2017 again I can confidently claim that these 3 amazing months were the best ones. I have had a great experience during them while working as a moderator of National Day ceremonies at the National Day Stage for all 93 days of EXPO. Sounds unbelievable, I know, but literally, I did not have a day without EXPO this summer. It was a huge experience and great time there. Meeting different cultures of 115 different countries and getting acquainted with 22 international organizations gave me a bunch of new thoughts and ideas about the world overall and broadened my mind hugely. Read more>>>

Two internships-two different experiences by Amanbek Omirkhan

        My 3-week internship at Eurocopter KE went very well. As it has been expected, HSE regulations of the company were at high level. First day of the internship started with the instructions on fire safety, code of conduct and general safety regulations at the factory...

Aikido became a bridge to internship

         My name is Nurzhamal Sadir. I am a 3rd year Mathematics major student. This summer I had a great time in ADB KARM as an intern. It was not so hard to apply for this position. Honestly, I knew Giovanni Capannelli, country director of ADB, personally as a trainer of aikido at our University. We had a little conversation about the internship, because he should have known that I have an interest and some knowledge in Economics. My internship was about the entrepreneurship in the Kostanay region. Read more>>>

Internship in national companies: how to get the most of it. Tips by Alua Makhmetova

    The internship started from bureaucratic routine of application of documents and signing of a contract between JSC NC “KTZh” and NU, because internship was self-found. The process flowed in a usual way and most part was solved by Career and Advising Center of NU. This typical process did not promise anything interesting and made me anticipate that internship would be without any remembering moments. Fortunately, my expectations were not met, and this experience became useful contribution to my life experience.  Read more>>>

How to become a GE intern 


     My name is Aida, and I am a 4th year student studying Mathematics at Nazarbayev University. The University gives one a strong academic background in Economics and Statistics, however to be a good financial analyst application of the knowledge is necessary. The best choice is doing an internship while taking classes at university, since this can help you to understand if this job interesting for you and helps you achieve your career goals.

Want to be a doctor-try job shadowing first


    I would like to express gratitude to our university, particularly, Career and Advising Center and UMC for such a great job shadowing opportunity to get a taste for a job, which I consider in my future.  It allowed me to observe professional doctors in their job, so now I understand the role of doctor, their responsibilities better.  As it's a shadowing experience it was unlikely that we will get to carry out any tasks, however it did not meet expectations. Fortunately, except just observing what actually doctors have to do along their working day, I also had a lot of work to do  there: mostly I assisted nurses. I transported patients to and from surgery room, X-ray, physiotherapy room and other places. My physical assistance was very helpful to nurses in case of patients, who were not able to move themselves. Read more>>>


Internships in the regions provide more specific experience

           I am Adamov Assyl and I had an internship in Rauan Nalco, 2017. LLP "RauanNalko" is a dynamically developing high-tech petrochemical enterprise with its own production facility and modern testing laboratory. Most of the time there I spent in laboratory washing dishes (it is important to keep the lab equipment clean!!!), assisting to local researchers and running experiments under their control. I chose Rauan Nalco among other 5 chemical factories based on my academic interests thanks to CAC Career Net platform launched by Career and Advising Center. One of the reasons why I chose Atyrau was to see the west of Kazakhstan where the chemistry market is developed the most. I wanted to feel the atmosphere and familiarize myself with the domestic chemistry market. Read more>>>

The company basically deals with the production of consoles for KazakhTelecom’s IDTV digital TV program. The company’s offices and factory are located 20 km away from Almaty, so you might be imagining how hard it was for me to wake up early in the morning and to catch up with shuttle bus.Read more>>>
