The global economy has evolved, so has the way work is done. New ways of doing things have arrived and have come to stay. In the Project Economy, individuals are empowered with the requisite skills and knowledge to convert ideas into reality. Organizations value these skillsets just as they appreciate the professionals who possess these invaluable skillsets. Even though various digital platforms provide the opportunity for organizations to identify and hire qualified professionals, there still exists a gap that requires some interventions. Whiles many professionals find it more comfortable working in an 8 to 5 job, a sizeable number also prefer to utilize their skills and knowledge acquired to convert their ideas into sellable products and services. These products and services equally require certain interventions to bring them closer to potential customers. Members of Project Management Institute, Ghana cut across both categories, spread across all industries.
To this end, the Ghana Chapter of the Project Management institute finds it expedient to facilitate the coming together of demand and supply.
On the 13th of April, 2022, PMI Ghana Chapter deemed it fit to hold a job and business fair at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Exciting exhibition and sponsorship packages are available for small, medium and large corporate organizations to partner PMI Ghana Chapter to impact the lives of individuals and organizations.
There will be carefully planned sessions on how to handle your job search as a project, how to retire in comfort, among other relevant discussions.
