Zebrajobs.com to Exhibit, Promoting AOJF 2010
Zebrajobs.com will be exhibiting at the CCA Conference to promote the launching of the second Africa Online Job Fair (AOJF), which will run from June 2, 2010 through July 1, 2010. This year’s AOJF is organized under the theme, “Empowering Africa: Health, Finance, Infrastructure, and Technology.” AOJF 2010 is a remarkable online environment connecting companies and organizations working in these sectors to a global talent pool.
This year’s AOJF follows the first fair, which launched during CCA’s U.S.–Africa Business Summit on September 30, 2009, and continued through December 30, 2009. The fair was organized in collaboration with CCA and with IBM as the lead sponsor. AOJF 2009 was a success, with more than 1,300 active job seekers logging into the online job fair campus on the day of the launch to connect with more than 100 representatives from the 18 exhibiting companies. Following the launch, more than 9,500 job seekers from around the world registered to access the job fair online campus. For 2010 AOJF, Zebrajobs.com has formed a media partnership with CCA, hoping to garner similar success to AVJF 2009.
With the launch of AOJF 2010, Zebrajobs.com seeks to attract U.S, European, and African corporations doing business in Africa; development organizations; the donor community; multinational organizations; international organizations; local private organizations; and government institutions engaged in the health, finance, infrastructure, and technology sectors. AOJF participants can showcase their companies and organizations through an online job fair exhibition, where they can give presentations, share documents, promote their organizations and employment opportunities in Africa, and interact with potential candidates globally. AOJF 2010 is an efficient and effective way to generate more demand at a better cost per lead while recruiting for open positions in Africa.
