Tech Job Fair Ghana 2023

Annual Tech Job Fair hosts over 2,000 IT talents in Accra

Linking IT talents with job opportunities in the digital sector

The 2023 edition of the annual Tech Job Fair, held in Accra on February 22, brought together over 2,000 job-seeking graduates and 55 companies from the tech industry to exhibit and fill up job openings in the IT space in Ghana and abroad.

Commenting at the event, Mr. David Gowu, the Executive Director of the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH), highlighted that "debates have always been rife as to whether the graduate unemployment situation in Ghana is occasioned by a lack of job openings or a mismatch of skills in relation to the available jobs. It is in response to this quandary that the concept of the Tech Job Fair (TJF) was conceived and birthed in 2020, and it is a great opportunity to find or change jobs, learn from the best experts in the IT and digital industries, and as well learn from and network with peers."

The job fair, held under the theme "Leveraging technology to create inclusive and sustainable jobs," was organised by the Institute of ICT Professionals Ghana (IIPGH) and AFOS Foundation with support of Invest for Jobs through its implementing organisation the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

To climax the activities on the day, a "business and networking cocktail" session was held solely for European and Ghanaian tech companies, as well as industry stakeholders, to explore collaborations among companies in the IT sector, the Government of Ghana and the GIZ. It provided companies with a unique opportunity to network, create business relationships, and foster new ones.

In addition, the "business and networking cocktail" session provided a platform for three partners of Invest for Jobs under its digital portfolio, namely, Amalitech Ghana, E-Services Africa Ltd., and getINNOtized GmbH, to engage in a captivating storytelling panel to share their experience of working with Invest for Jobs and the resulting impact on job creation for young people in Ghana.

The business and networking cocktail thus served as the ultimate closing event for the Tech Job Fair 2023 and indeed showcased the good working relationship between Invest for Jobs and its partners.
