Due to its great importance, the employability of university graduates (and the workforce in general ) is a subject of much interest to researchers, policymakers, and curriculum planners around the world.
Although the literature on graduate employability is informative and illuminating, the role of university practices in fostering graduate employability in sub-Saharan Africa, and Tanzania in particular, has been little studied.
Hence year after year, numerous graduates leave the university but remain unemployed.
“This is why we have set up the Daraja La Ajira Expo,” explained Peter John (PBDT) CEO of the expo slotted for 26 through to the 29 of August in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
‘Daraja La Ajira’, which literally translates to ‘Employment Bridge’ is the leading live event that offers on spot learning on current and prospecting career opportunities for professionals in Tanzania.
It is also a B2B marketing event that connects the most proactive marketing professionals with the tools, techniques, and innovations they need to be at the forefront of the ever-changing marketing world.
“This is where professionals can build strategic alliances…it is designed to support, grow and connect professionals, it opens doors to career opportunities and business networking,” the CEO detailed.
The outcome of the event is expected to boost the development of professional careers in Tanzania. It is also expected to enhance professional networking and connections as well as increase awareness of various career opportunities to the professionals in Tanzania.
The Daraja La Ajira Expo is an annual event that brings together career experts from various fields including commerce, science and technology, media, engineering and medical sector to mention but a few as well as open up opportunities for graduates and B2B marketing.
