The US embassy in Cairo said on Tuesday that it will host its annual job fair 'Sha3’lna' on 23 February from 10am to 6pm at the Pyramisa Hotel in Giza.
"This fair will provide Egyptian job-seekers with access to thousands of verified job vacancies in over a dozen different industries, offered by over 75 American, Egyptian, and multi-national companies," the embassy said in a statement.
A Facebook page under the name 'Sha3’lna' has been created to help those interested in registering or learning more about the fair.
The embassy highlighted that for the first time, this year’s fair will feature 10 start-up businesses, each looking for qualified candidates to fill vacancies ranging from accounting to graphic design and more.
According to Chargé d’Affaires Thomas Goldberger, “This is our fifth job fair in Cairo and we keep doing this because we keep hearing a demand from so many companies for the great talent that Egypt has to offer."
"We will continue to support increased job opportunities in Egypt just as we will continue to partner with the Egyptian government and private sector to offer the training needed to prepare Egypt’s workforce for the jobs of the future.”
