Amman, 7 August, 2016 – Akhtaboot – the career network (www.akhtaboot.com) announced today that it will be holding job fairs in Amman, Irbid, and Aqaba over the coming months. The three career events are the largest such gatherings in the Jordan,  where employers and job seekers can meet in one convenient location for the benefit of all.

“Launching Akhtaboot’s Job Fair for the seventh year in a row reaffirms our commitment to the Akhtaboot Cares Initiative, our corporate social responsibility program. The three job fairs were strategically designed across the Kingdom to provide the ideal networking platform for job seekers and employers everywhere,” said Mr. Yousef Shamoun, CEO and Co-founder of Akhtaboot.

This year’s job fairs are supported by USAID Jordan Competitiveness Program and will feature leading Jordanian companies in the ICT, clean technology, and healthcare and life sciences sectors in addition to a number of other industries covering a wide range of job opportunities.

“By pairing job-seekers with leading knowledge-economy employers, Akhtaboot is doing a great service to both,” said USAID JCP Chief of Party Dr. Wissam Rabadi. “We are proud to be part of this effort to showcase Jordanian talent.”

The fairs, which will include a two-day, exhibition-style event featuring courses on various career-advancement topics, will take place as follows:

  • Akhtaboot Job Fair – Irbid: 17-18 August 2016 at Irbid Grand Hall, Al-Hasan Youth City
