Addis Abeba – Aimed at discovering local talent, Huawei Ethiopia hosted its second-round regional job fair on 24 and 25 August in Bahir Dar, the capital city of the Amhara regional state.
Graduates from Bahir Dar, Gonder, Enjibara, and Debark Universities were among the attendees of the event. “The Huawei ICT Academy’s plan for this year includes working in collaboration with Technical Vocational and Training (TVT) institutions. As a result, the company also solicited resumes from TVT graduates,” the company said in a statement. More than 800 resumes were collected from participants at the event, which was organized in collaboration with Mind Solutions PLC (IMS), Ethiojobs.net, and Dereja.com, as well as Bahir Dar University. “The best candidates will be chosen from the resumes and will be given a chance to join Huawei.”
Huawei team discussed the job fair with a few of the applicants who have already submitted their resume and are happy to “connect with Huawei and other companies. They also requested that Huawei hire more people and provide a large number of internship opportunities.”
Huawei said its goal for this year was to provide internship opportunities to over 300 interns, which we have already accomplished. “In order to promote opportunities to graduate students, Huawei Ethiopia has hosted a number of job fairs. In collaboration with Addis Abeba University, the company held its second annual hand-shaking forum in the capital, Addis Abeba, on 09 and 10 May this year. It also held its first round of regional job fairs in Hawassa and Haromaya recently.
