U.S. Embassy “Shaghlna” Job Fair Comes to Cairo

March 26, 2018

Cairo – The U.S. Embassy in Cairo proudly announces its fourth annual job fair, “Shaghlna,” to be held on Saturday, March 31 at the Greek Campus in downtown Cairo. The fair underscores the Embassy’s commitment to Egypt’s economic growth and the continued professional development of its people.

During the fair, more than 60 companies will recruit for more than 5,000 verified job vacancies. Participating companies include Coca-Cola, General Motors, Berlitz, Raya Contact Center, Vodafone Egypt, and Americana, and many others. In addition to the thousands of jobs available, the fair will provide job-seekers with professional development and training sessions. In past years, thousands of Egyptian job applicants have found employment as a result of these fairs.

According to Chargé d’Affaires Thomas Goldberger, “Shaghlna helps match talented Egyptians with U.S., international, and local, companies. We are proud of our support for increased job opportunities in Egypt and we look forward to partnering with Egyptian businesses and the government to continue expanding economic opportunity.”

The “Shaghlna” fair is the first in a three-fair series, with other events taking place in Luxor this May and in Alexandria in late summer. The fair builds upon our previous successes and is, as always, free and open to the public. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Visit http://shaghlna.com/ to register.
