More than 320 job seekers attended a Job Fair organised in Gori by the Education Development and Employment Centre (EDEC) as part of the EU-funded Skills4Jobs project ‘Learn, Exercise, Achieve, Receive, Network for Employment! (LEARN for Employment!)’.
Thirty-eight companies from Shida Kartli presented more than 330 vacancies in the areas of food, manufacturing, construction, banking, trade and service companies. The registered job seekers had the chance to apply for open positions right at the fair.
“The EU programme Skills4jobs has been implemented in Georgia for three years with joint efforts. The programme aims to increase access to education and training among job seekers and especially among vulnerable groups and equip them with the skills necessary for their employment,“ said Nino Kochishvili, Programme Manager at the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia.
The forum was preceded by preparatory work, which involved helping job seekers to prepare their CVs, training them in job interview techniques and providing consultation.
