Job seekers to benefit from online professionals platform

JOB seekers have something to smile about following the launch of an online platform which registers professionals and facilitates link with potential employers to begin their career dreams.

The platform named ‘Gigspace’ has been co-developed by Ashura Babi and Steve Mawalla who are upcoming computer experts.

Speaking in an interview, Mawalla said the aim of the platform was to help internet users be comfortable online as well as assist job seekers with employment opportunities.

“This is the best way in which we want to assist someone to develop skills in his or her profession through digital means whereby a customer is registered in the website to link up with employers,” said Mawalla.

He said this was also a great opportunity for employees to double their income, but also it is the source of income to those who don't have employment.

According to Mawalla there are 400 internet users who uses the forum currently adding that the number was increasing day by day.

He added that among the professions that have been registered in the forum include engineers, accountants, architects and building contractors, journalists and commercial policy makers.

“I urged my fellow youth that they should not rely on the small income they earn in their offices, but to expand the scope of sources of income out of office, in order to improve individual and national economy.

He advised youths to take advantage of the growing number of internet users saying there is a great opportunity to develop and benefit.

The report titled “Measuring Communication in the Society 2018” shows the cost for ICT has decreased internationally in one decade.

Statistics from TCRA shows that there are more than 51 million mobile users, but out of that only 28 million customers use the internet.

Minister for Information and Communication Technology ICT, Dr FaustineNdugulile, said there is a work going on to simplify the provision of ICT services to the citizens including business people who are the key taxpayers.
