As part of its talent cultivation strategy, Huawei Technologies (Nigeria) Limited is set to host a job fair for Nigerian youth and remain continuously committed to not only providing the best training but also recruiting the best talents.
A statement issued by the company said the job fair, scheduled to hold on August 3, 2022, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, is intended to attract qualified candidates for job opportunities in IP technologies, information technologies, channel management, programming, data engineering, account management, delivery management, procurement, channel sales and others.
According to it, this will allow candidates to listen and connect to prospective employers. Recruiters would be looking out for Huawei-certified applicants, experienced applicants, interns and graduate trainees. The company said the opportunity is also open to NYSC members in need of places for their primary assignments.
“Nigeria is Africa’s largest economy and most populated country with great potential for development, especially in ICT. The ICT sector is crucial to its national growth, a strong tool for sustainable development, increasing productivity and economic expansion.
“The job fair is intended to attract qualified candidates for job opportunities in IP technologies, information technologies, channel management, programming, data engineering, account management, delivery management, procurement, channel sales and others.
“Companies in attendance will include Huawei, its partners, customers and contractors. This is one of the profound components of Huawei’s skills development strategy and youths are urged to seize the opportunity by ensuring that they market themselves and showcase their potential,” it said.
The job fair, the statement said, is an important part of the Huawei talent ecosystem development strategy which aims at developing talents, promoting a favourable business environment and strengthening partnerships within the industry.
“A key aspect of ICT development in Nigeria is the cultivation of ICT talents in all industries. Looking to bridge the gap between industry requirements and academia, Huawei continually leverages the technologies, knowledge, experience and successful practices it has gained over years of operations in the ICT industry to cultivate more high-quality ICT talent. Huawei does this by building sustainable partnerships between the industry, government and the academia.
“As part of this, Nigeria’s Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy recently partnered with Huawei towards developing ICT talents by signing an MOU with the ministry to train 3,000 students in ICT, thereby expanding the digital economy. This is done through different initiatives, one of which is the Huawei ICT Academy which has partnered with over 100 educational institutions in Nigeria. Some of these institutions include the Ahmadu Bello University, University of Port Harcourt, University of Ibadan, Rufus Giwa Polytechnic and other renowned institutions,” it added.
