IFAD Agrihub Nigeria Job Fair: Enhancing employment opportunities for youth in the agricultural sector
- December 14, 2022
- 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
- Ikeja, Lagos
The IFAD Agrihub Nigeria (IAN) project is organizing a job fair to aid a face-face interaction between the trained graduates of the program and potential employers. Giving them an opportunity to fill out and submit resumes and portfolios, and ask questions to get a good sense of what they need to do to secure a job and what the job would entail.
The IAN Job fair focuses on assisting young people who are in the process or have completed internships, apprenticeships, and Work-Based Learning Experiences (WBLE) to get employment that matches the skills they have acquired over time. It will discuss the challenges faced by both the employer and employee, the opportunities available for young people, advocacy for the project, and identification of stakeholders in the government and private sectors that can be involved to help skilled young people access work in the agricultural sector.
The goal is to attract qualified youths to decent employment opportunities in the agricultural sector, using the IFAD Agrihub Nigeria Project as a model. The aim of the Job fair is to raise awareness of the project activities and employment strategy, expose the trained youths to the demands of the labor market, while also providing them with the opportunity to explore career and employment opportunities, and bring together stakeholders in the job system in Nigeria to create sustainable partnerships.
