Invest for Jobs, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, in partnership with Jobberman Ghana is organising a career fair dubbed Invest for jobs Career X, with the theme “Gaining a competitive edge; A young graduate’s mandate”. Invest for Jobs is the brand of the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH among others.
The Invest for jobs career Fair X is aimed at sensitising, educating and creating networking opportunities for students and young graduates in Ghana to discover the world of work and the job opportunities in the Ghanaian labour market.
The fair brings together top companies in Ghana to one place, hence unveiling entry-level job opportunities and internships available in their firms.
This event forms part of the special initiative playing a pivotal role and as part of its efforts to contribute to its objective of improving economic conditions in selected locations and industry sectors in Ghana. The German Cooperation has supported this partnership initiative with an amount of 564,600 GHS to bridge the gap between academia and industry and to place 300 unemployed by the end of 2021.
The fair comes off on Friday 12th November between the hours of 10:00 am and 3:00 pm at the University of Professional Studies Accra, campus.
In an interview with the CEO of Jobberman Ghana, Haralabos Antarakis, he expressed his excitement about the event and looks forward to meeting all stakeholders.
“As your number one recruitment platform in Ghana, we get satisfied when qualified professionals get connected to their dream jobs. With the aim of making hiring efficient, easy and cost-effective for employers, we believe always finding the right fit is one main contributor to business success, and so these employers rely on Jobberman for quality candidates.
I entreat all young graduates looking for job opportunities to participate in the career fair and interact with top employers in Ghana who have entry-level roles for young graduates and the career opportunities in their companies”, he added.
Participation is free for all tertiary students and young graduates in Ghana. Interested tertiary students and young graduates can register here.
