Afghan job seekers preparing to enter labor force

More than 50 chancellors and leaders of private universities and higher education institutes met to discuss ways to prepare a ready pool of educated Afghan job seekers with the skills that private and public employers demand.

The program has completed training programs for more than 22,400 job seekers and private sector employees, with nearly 37 percent of them women. More than 61 percent of them have either been placed in jobs or promoted by their employers.

USAID’s Afghanistan Workforce Development Program is increasing highly-qualified, demand-driven labor in the Afghan workforce in key economic sectors.
