The paper which debuted Monday, May 4th across the country according to the publishers is born out of the need to provide job seekers with credible information on job opportunities. It also seeks to inform human resource managers and employers of labour on how best to deal with labour related issues.

Briefing newsmen on the new publication in Lagos, the Publisher, Mr. Nick Opara-Ndudu said, “essentially, Jobsweekly is set out to be a human resources learning offering covering issues on jobs, career and talent management.”

“For the job seekers, it seeks to be a source of information on job offerings across sectors and geography. For the employers and recruitment consultants, we hope to provide a forum through which they can reach out to qualified candidates as they seek to fill openings within their organisations or for their clients,” he noted.

On the editorial content he said, Jobsweekly will “strive to be a veritable source of articles and resources covering contemporary issues in human resources management, labour/employment law and related subjects.”

The publication, which currently sells for a N100, the publishers say, may go down to N50 later if the publication is widely accepted.

Mr. Opara-Ndudu also noted that, their overriding commitment shall be to focus on issues of job creation and why in spite of all the resources available to Nigeria, unemployment and poverty continue to pose formidable challenges to national development.

“We shall focus on the policy deficit that has led to the avoidable pitfalls in the formulation of effective job creation strategies in Nigeria and across most of the developing countries,” he said, adding that the publication will also show how shortcomings in the implementation of job creation initiatives have left African countries and their huge populations in a state of despair and frustration.”
