    Hi,

    If you live in Zimbabwe or are planning to move and made already some research you can help in sharing your experience.

    What is the best way to find a job in Zimbabwe? Is it better to go there on holiday and search? Do you register on some website? Do you use recruitment agencies in Zimbabwe?

    You can help and share information on:

    :arrow: Recruitment agencies? Have you got their contact?

    I've been trying to get employed since January 2012 without any success. What exactly is so wrong in this country excluding the high rate of unemployment ?

    It could be an easy way NOT to say the complete truth as I can see all other educated people around me employed and well paid.

    As far as I can see and understand , unemployment is a problem, but not THE problem.

    This what I am trying to figure out. I am an expatriate looking for advice and proper guidance in this forum. The high rate of unemployment is well known but as I mentioned before all the skilled people like me that I know not only are empoyed but also receive descent salaries.

    Just forget it guys, don't even think to come to this place. It is true madness. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a job if you are an expatriate and even if you do, they will pay you with peanuts.
