Huawei Ethiopia is hosting its first regional job fair in Hawassa and Haromaya aiming to provide job opportunities to local residents.
Brought in partnership with Mind Solutions PLC (IMS), Ethiojobs.net, and Dereja.com, as well as Hawassa and Haromaya Universities, Huawei plans to collect over 1,000 resumes at these job fairs, among whom Huawei-certified students will receive special consideration.
Taking place today and tomorrow, June 21 and 22, the company arranges interviews with the applicants and distributes their lists to its partners to be recruited for potential job opportunities.
Huawei Ethiopia which has organized several job fairs to promote opportunities to graduate students in the capital, says it encourages new graduates to apply for internships and jobs at the company.
It also offers a specific internship program that allows fresh graduates to participate in a three-month internship at its Ethiopian headquarters to indorse access and recruitment opportunities. This year’s goal is to provide internship opportunities for more than 300 interns, and more than 90% of that goal has already been met.
According to current student operation data, over 4,500 students are registered and associated with ICT academies, and over 2,200 are active and attending online and onsite classes. Currently, 339+ students from Hawassa and 345+ from Haromaya are affiliated with these ICT academies.
