Akhtaboot's 6th Job Fair 2015 concluded successfully with over 20,000 attending job seekers. The job fair was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Labor at Amman Grand Hall, Al Hussein Youth City on the 9th and 10th of September 2015. The biggest career event in Jordan hosted over 80 local and international companies and was launched as a CSR initiative of Akhtaboot Cares Initiative- Akhtaboot's CSR arm.

Akhtaboot's CEO and Co-founder, Mr. Yousef Shamoun said: "Akhtaboot’s 6th Job Fair is a true testament to our vital role in supporting the professional growth of our Jordanian talent. The event served as a one stop platform that has been systematically developed to enhance the candidates’ employability as well as power the recruitment efforts of hiring companies. With the launch of our job fair for the 6th year in a row, Akhtaboot affirms it's committed to tackling the unemployment challenge while overcoming the mismatch between company needs and job seeker skills across sectors in the Jordanian and Middle Eastern job markets."

The job fair was held from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm on both Wednesday and Thursday, which provided job seekers with a great opportunity to connect and network with companies covering a number of private, public, and not-for-profit sectors.
