The US Embassy in Cairo is due to hold its annual job fair “Shaghlna” Saturday, 23 February, from 10am to 6pm at the Pyramisa Hotel in Giza.

The 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 multinational companies.  

For the first time ever, 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. Between these start-ups and traditional companies, over 6,500 verified job vacancies will be on offer.

During the fair, job-seekers will be able to attend free professional development and training sessions in order to improve their skills in interviewing, resume writing and more. The fair is one of many initiatives sponsored by the US Embassy in Cairo to support economic growth and prosperity in Egypt.

US Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Thomas Goldberger commented on the fair saying, “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.”

Attendance at the job fair is free, but registration is required. For more information and to register visit
