MASVINGO – The Public Service Commission (PSC) will beginning today launch job fairs in which graduates and potential employers will interact, Commissioner Temba Khombe has said.

The event is held at the Museum of the African Liberation. 

Khombe said this at a graduation and prize-giving function at Alvord Campus where he was the guest of honour. Some 46 students from the College graduated with a Diploma in Community Development Studies.

A job fair is an event where multiple recruiters, hiring managers and employers meet with potential employees in one convenient, neutral venue, such as a school or college. Companies save time and effort on recruiting by participating in these events.

Some companies can hold interviews and recruit right there at the job fairs.

“The inaugural job fair will be in Harare tomorrow (today). Ministries, Departments and agencies of Government will showcase their functions as well as the employment opportunities. 

“I encourage graduates to be on the lookout for opportunities to acquire first-hand information across ministries to have an appreciation of the possible career route one may choose to take in the Public Service,” he said. 

He said while jobs may be limited, possessing information empowers job seekers to position themselves to grab opportunities 

Khombe said the mandate of the PSC is to assist in the administration of Zimbabwe by ensuring that the government is well structured and resourced with a human capital component that is fit for purpose. 

Alvord Acting Principal Simbarashe Munamati said the mandate of his institution is to carry out training and development of various public servants in mandatory and reform-based courses as well as disseminating Government policies and programmes.
