Rwanda Job Day, an initiative aimed at linking people with the various skills to prospective employers, will be held for the second time in Kigali on January 4.
The forum is organised through a partnership between the Ministry of Public Service and Labour, and two organisations; Job in Rwanda and Awakening Abilities.
According to Grace Nyinawumuntu, the event coordinator, during Rwanda Job Day, employers screen candidates for job openings and can introduce themselves as a desirable place to work, while job candidates gather career information.
"Rwanda Job Day is a major recruitment drive where employers and job-seekers come together for the purpose of applying and interviewing for jobs available," said Nyinawumuntu.
She said that they got the idea from the fact more than 11,000 jobs were created in Rwanda in 2010, but there was lack of visibility between employers and candidates. "Our goal is to simplify how both actors - employers and candidates - interact with each other," she said.
The event, which will take place at the National Library Services in Kacyiru, is open to everybody.
Over 22 employers participated in last edition, representing such sectors as banking, insurance, ICT, and education, as well as civil society.
Among the candidates that attended last year, 400 were members of the Rwandan Diaspora communities from Europe and North America.
