ITIDA Organizes Access to Talent Program ‘Jobathon’


The Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC) of the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) is organizing the Access to Talent Program “Jobathon.”
 
Jobathon is aimed to effectively and efficiently facilitate business enterprises’ access to talent, for both hiring and internship needs, through a series of jobathons held at CREATIVA Innovation Hubs in different governorates, as well as at TIEC premises in Smart Village, Borg El-Arab, and Assuit Technology Parks.
 
The program acts as a platform for connecting to a large database of graduates from multiple technology capacity-building programs, across more than 10 Egyptian governorates.
 
Jobathon targets Egyptian startups and the graduates of capacity-building programs offered by ITIDA and TIEC.
 
The jobathons are planned as a one-day technical challenge event executed by individuals interested to apply for a job vacancy posted by a certain company. Participants who manage to solve the challenge with high quality and faster techniques get the chance to be interviewed for hiring or internship opportunities at the requesting enterprise.
 
Through the program, applicants may obtain solid opportunities to get hired, while top candidates receive cash prizes of EGP 10,000 per jobathon. Participants can, also, connect with their peers and build future collaboration ties.
 
For companies, the program helps fulfill hiring needs through a robust technical filtration mechanism, and it increases awareness among the developer community.
 
Established in 2010, TIEC aims to drive innovation and entrepreneurship in the local industry to ensure that both individuals and businesses benefit from ICTs.
