A massive new career expo with more than 2,000 jobs up for grads will be held next month.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Development will be organizing the jobs fair in December and the preparations have begun.
The event will be held at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre showcasing more than 2,000 vacancies. A large number of leading companies will be attending the event to interview and hire job seekers. There will be vacancies in various different professional areas from companies belonging to different sectors.
Such events are organized as a part of the ministry’s efforts to reduce unemployment and to follow up on the National Employment Programme.
The four key initiatives within the National Employment Programme, includes, launching an awareness campaign to encourage citizens to register in the programme, amending the unemployment insurance draft law (78/2006) in order to increase compensation fees, increasing fees associated with the Parallel Bahrainisation System and the Flexible Work Permit and redesigning Tamkeen’s Training and Wage Support Programme.
