KAPITA Holds the First Job Fair
Iraqi job seekers had an opportunity to explore and talk to employers during KAPITA’s first Job Fair.
Organized by ScaleUp Academy in partnership with GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development BMZ). The job fair, held Nov. 10th, included 15 graduate startups of the program of different cohorts like (Eduba, STEmile, Orderii, Hili, Seven Professions, Service Point, Safr, and more!)
Scaleup Academy in partnership with GIZ hoped to provide an opportunity for Iraqi fresh graduates to explore the job market in Iraq through an internship program of 3 months in one of the startups of our program.
“I think the job fair project today showcases the level of development that the startups have reached as they’re now looking to expand their team. It is a reflection of the work done by the team at KAPITA. In light of the results here today, we will see internship opportunities offered to a number of the participants that are here and are still arriving and it matches perfectly with what we tried to do at the ICT project, as I mentioned alread,y which is create job prospects for the youth in Ira,q so it fits very well with our mission” mentioned Mr. Niall Ardill, Advisor for Start-up Entrepreneurship Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for youth (GIZ) GmbH.
Furthermore, Mrs. Anwar Abdulsattar HRBP Sr. Manager at Asiacell Communications PJSC said, “It’s important to mention Asiacell’s big strategic support of the startups in reaching their goals and developing their startups through the ScaleUp Academy. But today I would like to talk directly to the attendees and wish them good luck, because this is a great opportunity for you to go out and explore the job market and present yourself and your skills to the employers.”
