    Talal Abu Ghazaleh Organisation (TAG-Org) Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Talal Abu Ghazaleh inaugurated last week the second job fair organised by the Talal Abu Ghazaleh Knowledge Centre (TAG-Knowledge) and Akhtaboot.
    The chairman expressed satisfaction with the organisation of the job fair for the second year in a row saying: “We are working with the Ministry of Labour as partners and one team moving in the same direction. Our common goal is to increase job opportunities and qualified talents," Abu Ghazaleh said. Labour Assistant Secretary General Nadera Al Bakhit commended the efforts exerted by TAG-Knowledge and Akhtaboot and called for opening more opportunities for women.
    Akhtaboot Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Yousef Shamoun said: “Only through job fairs, job seekers and employers can directly meet, dialogue and interact.
    It’s a great opportunity to future employees to show their skills and personality that might grant them the first step towards job positions.” This year's two-day event was sponsored by Bank of Jordan (platinum sponsor), Umniah (gold sponsor), Pepsi Jordan and Bell Amman (silver sponsors), the Online Project and Ad Dustour newspaper (media sponsors).
