New online portal offers hope to Cameroon's job seekers

  New online portal offers hope to Cameroon's job seekers.

Online venture started in March 2015 and backed by Africa Internet Group (AIG).

Everjobs, Cameroon's new online job portal, recently started its operations in Douala and was officially launched by co-founder and managing director Africa, Eric Lauer.

Everjobs's mission is to simplify the job search and hiring process by connecting job seekers with employers in a matter of clicks.

The company says its website offers helpful tools and intuitive features, such as a CV creation tool, user-friendly site navigation, enhanced search filters, and professional career advice.

In a media release Everjobs states, "the platform provides the right match for professionals and employers alike: posts on the website range from small local enterprises to multinational corporations, from entry level roles for graduate students to top level positions. Featuring some of Africa's top employers with over a hundred career opportunities on the platform from day one, Everjobs brings the Cameroonian job market to the fingertips of the job seekers."

Eric Lauer, Co-founder and Managing Director at Everjobs Africa, said,, "We aim to facilitate the growing job market that results from a rapidly growing economy by getting involved with the local communities and understanding their needs. Everjobs wants to create equal opportunities for all Cameroonians and strives to tackle recruitment biases that hinder the scope of diversity within companies."

According to the company the growing market of online job classifieds not only provides an efficient and effective channel for employers to find talented individuals, but it also provides job seekers with the opportunity to explore potential career paths.

"Cameroon is currently experiencing high rates of youth unemployment despite having a highly qualified workforce, and we can see the detrimental effect this has on students we meet every day. At Everjobs we believe each individual has a unique set of skills and all it takes is the right match for them to succeed. Our mission is to promote transparency in the labor market", adds Lauer
