4 Job Portals that are increasing access to information about jobs across Africa
In today’s contemporary Africa, the trend has evolved from traditional methods of disseminating information about employment opportunities, such as visiting job centres, searching for vacancies in newspapers and physically handing CVs to potential employers, to embracing digital methods of job searching, in the form of job portals.
