1 Mins read

HRDC has announced that the government will soon be launching a job portal (job seekers database) to facilitate and provide immense employment opportunities to Botswana’s job seekers.

This was disclosed during a live Botswana Television (BTV) broadcast on Tuesday by the Chief Executive Officer of HRDC, Dr. Raphael Dingalo, and Directorate of Public Service Management Director, Ms. Naledi Mosalakatane. Botswana’s unemployment rate currently stands at 18.72% according to Statista.

Dr. Dingalo said job seekers can register in the database through the internet, more especially in this time of COVID-19. Dr. Dingalo encouraged job seekers to upload their CVs and that this will work to their advantage as potential employers and investors can access it. He said through this database, investors will see what kind of skills are there in Botswana.

“The job seekers database will be available through an online website that will send job updates via SMS alerts.” Ms. Mosalakatane says the introduction of the job portal facilitates much-needed efficiency among service providers and encouraged ministries to fully utilize the database.

As HRDC we will be able to mine the job seekers database for policy advice,

said Dr. Dingalo

Before employers can be enrolled on Botswana’s job seekers database they will be assessed first.
