YEA Jobs And Career Fair Hits Tamale On Thursday, October 28

In the course of the week, the YEA Job Career and Entrepreneurship Fair train is hitting Tamale, the Northern Regional capital, to provide job and entrepreneurial opportunities closer to the inhabitants of Northern Region as part of the government’s “One Million Jobs” initiative.

The Fair dubbed “Entrepreneurship Pitch Fair” proposes to introduce the youth to entrepreneurship and start-up pitch and is scheduled to take place on Thursday 28th October 2021 at the Tamale Sports Stadium between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5 :00 p.m. on the day.

The deadline for the registration is 26th October 2021

In furtherance to the previous Fairs where the youth converged in their thousands at the Accra International Conference Centre to have an interface with business owners and companies, the Tamale Fair seeks to encourage the youth aside from search for job openings to venture into entrepreneurship.

All they need to do is to proceed to register with their business ideas and proposals at the Fair.

To manage the number of participants, the Fair will be held in two sessions.

The first session will be held from 9:00 am and 12 noon while the second session will last the duration of 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

There will be resource persons to take participants, start-ups and job seekers through career guidance, capacity building, entrepreneurship and pitch contest among the youth.

Preparations are far advanced to host the event at the Tamale stadium owing to the anticipated number of job seekers billed to throng the venue to interact with business owners, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and companies.

The Regional Director of the YEA, Haruna Mohammed, is upbeat about the event as he looks forward to a successful programme to give hope to the youth in the North.

He was full of praise for the agency for the recognition of the North to also benefit from such laudable initiative.

He finds it a rare opportunity for businesses in the North to be offered such a huge platform to showcase their products and services.

He finally called on all stakeholders who are interested in jobs and jobs creation to make their way to the fair on Thursday 28th October 2021.
