Member Interviews
How could you best describe your organization?
JobnetAfrica is the number one website for international jobs in Africa. We recruit for companies active on the African continent. But at least as important, our new website is a platform that reaches tens of thousands people interested in jobs in Africa where companies can advertise their jobs and jobseekers can opt to be premium members, so they have maximum visibility for employers.

What makes your organization/ company/ service different from others?
JobnetAfrica focuses on the whole of Africa and our network is already extensive and growing by the day. So it is very interesting for companies that want to advertise or let us do their recruitment. We have an interactive website where companies can upload their jobs themselves and jobseekers can upload their profile and become premium members. On the other hand JobnetAfrica is also a very personal company; no answering machines, automatized e-mails etc. We are easy to reach, will answer your questions quickly and are always in for a chat.
