OPUVIA FAIR is dedicated to helping international education and career institutions recruit prospective students and skilled professionals from Yaounde.

The Yaounde International Education and Career Fair October 2019 will take place at Hotel de Ville in Yaounde. This fair is a one-day event which will attract a large pool of students and skilled professionals by giving them several options to accommodate different prices, applications, locations, courses, and work requirements.

Students and Skilled professionals are encouraged to come with all necessary documents so they can apply for studies and job positions on the spot.

Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast is one of the most populated French-speaking cities in Africa with a population of over 4.7 million. Being a cultural crossroad of West Africa, Abidjan is characterized by a high level of industrialization and urbanization. In addition, it is Cote D’Ivoire’s only city where university education is available.

These facts make Abidjan an exceptional hub for students and skilled professionals from across the country.

The education system of Cote D’Ivoire comprises three stages: primary school, secondary school and university education with a certificate given at the end of each stage. Since this system of studies meets the criteria of most nations across the world, education service providers can be sure of recruiting the best students from Cote D’Ivoire.

According to trading Economics, the nation’s unemployment rate stands at 2.60%. But this is interesting because Cote D’Ivoire considers only those actively looking for jobs when calculating its unemployment rates. As a recruiter, you can be sure of meeting with a wide range of job seekers.

As at the fourth quarter of 2016, the labour force participation rate of Cote D’Ivoire stood at 60.3%. With a drop in unemployment rate, the labour force participation rate has been on the rise since then. Therefore, a majority of Job seekers are actually people who have been active in the labour force before, hence skilled professionals. Cote D’Ivoire is therefore a thriving and promising nation in which recruiters can meet the best.

Set 7km from the city centre, this upscale hotel in the trendy Cocody district overlooks the Ébrié Lagoon and is 5 km from St Paul’s Cathedral. 

Featuring contemporary decor with bright accents, the polished rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, in-room safes and minibars. Suites add separate living rooms, espresso machines and designer toiletries, while 1- and 2-bedroom apartments add dining rooms (some have lagoon views). Room service is available.
