All is set for the maiden Youth Employment Agency job fair slated from  Friday (9 September)  at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Over One hundred and Twenty (120) companies and business Owners have so far registered and confirmed participation exceeding the initial minimum figure of 50 companies earmarked to participate in the Fair.

A statement issued by YEA said “This development is a clear indication of a positive response especially by the private sector to help to push the One Million Jobs Agenda of His Excellency the President and to support the Youth Employment Agency  to address the unemployment menace confronting the youth of Ghana.”

The two–day event is scheduled for Thursday,  9 September and Friday, 10 September 2021, and will be organised on the theme ‘Bridging the Job Gap in Partnership with the Private Sector’. The venue is the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. each day.


The primary objective of the YEA Job Fair is to provide opportunity for job seekers to go through live interview sessions towards getting employed by the participating companies. The fair also seeks to introduce available job avenues in the offing or on offer by the companies and business owners.

Participating companies will be afforded access to a large pool of qualified job seekers to be readily interviewed. Apart from the live interview sessions and recruitment, job seekers will be given free training in Curriculum Vitae preparations, preparations for Interviews, Career Advice etc.

This is the first time the Job Fair is being organised after the YEA JOB CENTRE was launched in October 2019 which has afforded over three thousand (3000) young persons to gain permanent employment in both the public and the private sector.

Regional Fair 

The YEA plans to replicate the Fair in the other regions to draw the Job Centre closer to prospective Job Seekers across the country. The regional fair is slated to commence from the Volta regional capital, Ho, on the 23rd September 2021 followed .

It has assured job seekers that  those who may not get employed immediately during the Fair will be listed for employment in the nearer future.
