A new online job portal dubbed Everjobs has launched in Cameroon.
Beginning operations in the country’s largest city Douala, the portal aims to simplify the job search and hiring process by connecting job seekers with employers. The website offers helpful tools and intuitive features, such as a CV creation tool, user-friendly site navigation, enhanced search filters, and professional career advice.
Roles available on the website range from small local enterprises to multinational corporations, with entry level roles for graduate students as well as top level positions. Major African employers are advertising positions, with over a hundred career opportunities on the platform from day one.
Eric Lauer, Co-founder and Managing Director at Everjobs Africa asserts, “We aim to facilitate the growing job market that results from a rapidly growing economy by getting involved with the local communities and understanding their needs. Everjobs wants to create equal opportunities for all Cameroonians and strives to tackle recruitment biases that hinder the scope of diversity within companies.”
In Cameroon, the growing market of online job classifieds provides an efficient and effective channel for employers to find talented individuals, as well as allowing job seekers the opportunity to explore potential career paths. Everjobs gives employers direct access to Cameroon’s best talent, including so-called ‘repats’ - Cameroonians who studied and worked abroad.
“Cameroon is currently experiencing high rates of youth unemployment despite having a highly qualified workforce, and we can see the detrimental effect this has on students we meet every day. At Everjobs we believe each individual has a unique set of skills and all it takes is the right match for them to succeed. Our mission is to promote transparency in the labour market”, adds Eric Lauer.
