Amman, September 10th 2017 – Akhtaboot – the career network ( is glad to announce that it will be launching “Akhtaboot’s 8th Job Fair 2017 – Amman” – Jordan’s biggest career event, on the 13th and 14th of September 2017. This event will be taking place at Amman Grand Hall, Al Hussein Youth City (Gate 1). Job seekers attending “Akhtaboot’s 8th Job Fair 2017 – Amman” will be able to meet with companies from different sectors and industries under one roof. Attending the job fair, participating in courses and workshops, and getting career advice is completely free of charge for any individual interested in self-growth and career advancement.

Mr. Yousef Shamoun, CEO and Co-founder of Akhtaboot said: “Recognizing a need to bridge the unemployment gap in the Kingdom, our job fairs are held with the participation of a number of leading local and international companies and educational institutions covering different sectors and industries. This year marks the 8th consecutive job fair we undertake as part of our CSR arm, the Akhtaboot Cares Initiative. Our job fair is the largest career event that takes place in Jordan under one roof, providing a one-stop shop for both employers looking to hire and employees looking for job opportunities. Remarkably, we have a growing number of hired candidates as a result of our job fairs each year, and we are confident that this year will be no different.”

We at Akhtaboot are firm believers at being inclusive and giving opportunity to as many people as possible, as part of our social responsibility to our community and country at large. As a result, another job fair will be held in Aqaba for the second consecutive year. This will ultimately ensure access to both job seekers and employers from across Jordan looking for opportunities and networks.

Last year’s job fairs were a success, attracting 31,000 job seekers and an unprecedented number of companies (105 in total) offering 4,486 vacancies that covered a wide range of sectors and career levels, leaving 97% of the companies interested in partaking in Akhtaboot’s 8th Job Fair.
