Career Expo Set to be Held Virtually

The second edition of a Virtual Career Expo organised by Dereja.com, a business unit of Ethiojobs.net, is set to take place between December 8 and December 18, 2020. Dereja.com is working in tandem with the Jobs Creation Commission and the Mastercard Foundation to host the event, which is expected to involve around 2,000 students from seven universities. The event will take place on four separate days in four cities, namely Hawassa, Jimma, Bahir Dar and Addis Abeba. The first round of the Expo took place back in August of this year and saw the participation of over 1,000 fresh graduates and 80 employers. Candidates were allowed to meet with employers and recruiters, apply for jobs and attend development webinars. So far, 700 of the graduates that took part in the first Expo have managed to secure employment.
