The Federal Government will tomorrow begin the online registration of unemployed persons in the country in a bid to keep a robust database of unemployed and job creation.
Daily Sun gathered that the registration was in compliance with the third mandate of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) which required it “to obtain and maintain a data bank on employment and vacancies in the country with a view to acting as a clearing house to link job seekers with vacancies in collaboration with other government agencies.”
A statement by NDE Deputy Director, Information and Public Relations, Mr. Edmund Onwuliri, said the framework for the online registration being handled by the directorate was already completed and ready for lunch.
The statement said: “There will be a practical demonstration of the workings of the portal at the NDE stand at the on-going 28th edition of the Enugu International Trade on Thursday, April 6, 2017.
“However, the portal can be accessed by logging on to www.jobsforall.ng. The directorate sees this initiative as a bold step towards deepening the effectiveness of its employment creation strategies and a critical input into the process of designing, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of programmes and schemes.”
Onwuliri explained that the online portal would also serve as a meeting point for job seekers and employers thereby reducing the cumbersome process of recruitment among employers of skilled labour in the private and public sectors.
