Fadi Drawish the regional manager told Addustor newspaper “We are committed to develop new methods, and make it easy to find qualified employees and to communicate with them in issues concerning  the employers, as for job seekers, we aim to make looking for the suitable vacancies much easier with the best workplaces in Jordan and the region”.

The virtual job far will host 3D booths for participating companies, each both will hold the name and logo of each company like real world job fairs, and users will be allowed to access information about the participating companies such as culture, mission and recruitment policies.
