Empowering Africa: Health, Finance, Infrastructure, and Technology
Silver Spring, MD (Vocus) October 28, 2010
Zebrajobs.com announced today that Net2Phone, a world leader in delivering voice services over data networks, is the Gold Sponsor of the second Africa Online Job Fair (AOJF) 2010 organized by Zebrajobs.com. The Africa Online Job Fair is the leading online platform connecting employers with job seekers to interact on wide-ranging career and employment opportunities in Africa.
As a gold sponsor, Net2Phone, a leader in International VoIP, will be at the forefront of this innovative web-based job fair to support its expanding operations across Africa. Due to Africa's major growth in broadband internet penetration, Net2Phone is looking to connect more countries in Africa with high quality, low cost Voice over IP. Net2Phone has partnered with Zebrajobs.com to actively seek resellers in Africa to sell Net2Phone Phone’s VoIP services during the one-month long Fair, which is scheduled to open on November 3, 2010.
As a Net2Phone representative indicated, “Net2phone customizes PC to phone dialers to cyber cafes, complete call shop packages, and broadband telephony to businesses and residentials to provide them with high quality, low cost international calling. Net2Phone's resellers enjoy a recurring revenue stream from the Net2Phone Reseller Program and benefit from Net2Phone's turn-key reseller tools that allow the resellers to focus on their sales and marketing.”
This year’s AOJF organized under the theme, “Empowering Africa: Health, Finance, Infrastructure, and Technology”, is a remarkable online environment connecting companies and organizations working in these sectors to a global talent pool.
