In 2015, Dereja was born with the aim of solving what we believe to be one of the most dire issues we face in Ethiopia, Youth Unemployment! Dereja.com is a social enterprise of Info Mind Solutions PLC. (Ethiojobs.net). Established in 2017, we are dedicated to supporting the over 200,000 fresh graduates entering the labor force in starting their careers on the right path. Every year fresh graduates enter a job market that has negative preconceptions about their abilities, this is where Dereja steps in. A major part of Dereja.com is to address the evident lack of guidance and career resources available for university students and junior-level professionals through our three interventions:
1, Dereja.com (digital portal): An online portal built to link students to employment information.
2, Dereja Academy: A 3-month accelerator program built for graduating year students. The program is set to develop fresh graduates in topics that don’t get covered during their schooling such as Personal Development, Communication skills, Emotional Intelligence, and Critical thinking.
3, Career Expo and Career Expo Clinic: Serves as an offline employment linkage tool that assists graduates in finding jobs before their graduation date by bringing employers to their institutions whom they would not typically have access to, giving them a chance to meet potential employers in person and create a good first impression.
Through our partnership with Mastercard Foundation, we here at Dereja.com are proud to be part of the solution to the employment of young people within Ethiopia and improve the overall socioeconomic status of the nation.
