About us

History

The first career planning activities in Turkey started in the name of “Employment Office for Alumni” affiliated to METU President’s Office in 1999 and Career Fairs started to be organized across Ankara. With the awareness of being an important bridge for university-industry cooperation from the very first day, and with the aim of carrying out its activities academically, it started operating as an Application and Research Center under the Council of Higher Education within METU Career Planning Application and Research Center in accordance with the regulation published in the Official Gazette on March 23, 2017.
