I often hear complaints that it’s hard finding jobs on the continent – unless you know someone who knows someone that knows someone…well you get the gist! Here are some tips on how to find jobs via the web and social media.
Web:The following websites are quite interesting, in term of constant inflow of job offers:
- Careers in Africa
- Global Career company (excellent newsletter)
- Skilled Africans
- Afric Search
- Afric Talents
- Empower talents and careers
- Afrijobbers (Portail d’emplois en Afrique) & on Facebook
- Afriworkers: L’annuaire des teleworkers africains
Social media: While on Facebook, your best bet is to find job-oriented local Facebook groups (of which I am currently compiling a list), your best bet on Twitter is to follow country-specific hashtags or to apply to competitions, like the World bank’s #Iwant2Work4Africa’s campaign! And of course, there is always LinkedIn & Viameo.Do you have other ones to share?
We cannot complain about what they think of us until we start telling them about us.
A bientôt, – Sarah C.
