JOB Opportunity Information Sessions To Be Held For Unemployed Graduates



Starting in Accra on Tuesday 20 March, AmDeCo  will be offering #1000Interns applicants and unemployed graduates the opportunity to hear from, interact with and learn more about the world of corporate Sales & Marketing. Experienced and successful Sales Executives from the Financial Services sector will be sharing their experiences and journeys with applicants. Nationally, there will be subsequent Information Sessions coming up for university, SHS, HND or TVET graduates interested in applying for Training and, for those who are successful, full-time jobs in Corporate Sales, Marketing and Communications. Amma Gyampo, founder of AmDeCo says “This project is about doing business while doing good. This project is about the impact of matching 1000 unemployed graduates with a tangible opportunity to transform the trajectory of their futures. The idea really is that after a year or two of practical experience with our corporate clients, those Interns that are so inclined can think about climbing the corporate ladder or eventually go on to start-up their own businesses successfully offering products or services that solve local problems for our country’s development. One of the first pieces of advice we offer start-ups or would be entrepreneurs is “what problem are you looking to solve with this business?” Gyampo adds: “Our clients will share further information about the free Training and Sales/Marketing/Communications roles they have available for our Interns. Interested interns will get to engage with Sales Executive . Unemployed graduates are encouraged to apply and attend the programme if they are interested in receiving formal work experience with a corporate organisation and developing these essential skills, which will hold them in good stead for the rest of their lives. 

Interested applicants must first apply via to be selected and given full details of the information sessions.
