Approximately 100 Chinese companies are set to take part in the first season of China-Tanzania job fair organised by the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) through its Confucius Institute (CI) at its main campus this weekend.
UDSM Deputy Vice Chancellor (DVC) responsible for academic, Prof Florens Luoga, said in a press conference in Dar es Salaam that the goal of the two-day event is to support the government’s initiative to unravel the problem of unemployment.
“The event to be held on Saturday and Sunday will help Chinese investment enterprises in the country and local enterprises to meet the needs of local personnel,” said the UDSM -DVC.
“The applicants should also bring with them soft copies of academic certificates and transcripts or provisional results for ongoing students. The event is yet another platform to promote the friendship and cultural exchange between China and Tanzania,” he observed.
Prof Luoga mentioned the jobs available in the Chinese companies which will participate in the event as accounts, human resource management, sales, translation, record management, business management, elevator engineering, electronic engineering and mechanical engineering.
Others are environmental engineering, administrative Assistant, logistics, construction, tour guide, tourism, driving, workshop supervision, sports, cashier, clearing and forwarding, procurement, civil engineering, typists, secretarial, marketing, laws, public relations and advertising.
“Our projection is that about 5,000 graduands will take part in the event whose major aim is to reduce the problem of unemployment among graduating students,” concluded Prof Luoga.
Prof Luoga pointed out that those interested in grabbing the job opportunities should bring with them a soft copy of detailed and up-to-date Curriculum Vitae (CV) with two passport size photos noting that the applicants should be prepared for interview.
