Seven local organisations have come together to organise Botswana Youth Jobs Fair with the aim to raise awareness on the importance of permanent jobs for the majority population, youth.
AIESEC Botswana, 89-fifty communications, Afrolutionist Media, Bit Brands Digital Marketing, Botswana Student Network, BW Youth Jobs 4 Graduates and Career Coaching will host the fair in Botho University on June 21 to 23. The Barclays Bank Ready to Work Programme will be facilitated during workshops at the fair.
“The goals of the fair are to facilitate for the hiring needs of both local and international companies and the employment needs of Botswana youth job seekers.” It also seeks to develop and nurture a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst unemployed youth and to bring together potential employers, service providers and job seekers.
In an interview, the spokesperson of the initiative, Mmabatho Motsamai, highlighted that efforts of job creation cannot be handled by government and large private firms alone, but require efforts coming in from all streams. The three-day event is free and open to all unemployed youth, service providers and prospective employers.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
