MSELECT USAID-funded Foras Centers of Opportunity

Posted on 6/01/2015


Have you made your resolution yet for the New Year? January 1 is just around the corner and MSELECT wants to help you start this year off right. The New Year is a time for personal and professional resolutions; finding a new job or breaking into a new field can be tough, but MSELECT is here to help in the job search.

This New Year, MSELECT is teaming up with the Foras Opportunities program, an economic growth initiative funded by USAID that intends to improve economic and job opportunities for job-seeking Iraqis. This month alone, MSELECT opened 6 brand new Foras Centers of Opportunity across Iraq, including 3 in Erbil, 1 in Baghdad, 1 in Najaf and 1 in Basrah. Each day, MSELECT offers high-quality training courses in Employability Skills from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from now until the end of March for Iraqis on the jobs search. We have even created a female-friendly space; our center in The Fig Club, a fitness and art club in Erbil, offers classes exclusively for women, too.

The Employability Skills classes, which are sponsored by the Foras program, include subjects to prepare to snag your next job including CV writing, interview skills, register and apply for jobs on the Foras portal, job search & job match skills and e-Learning. Each class is just one hour and classes are held in our training centers in Erbil and Basra, as well as at training locations in Baghdad and Najaf.  Training languages are Kurdish and Arabic.

MSELECT plans to offer specialized courses next to help you break into a new job field. Specialized Skills courses are also 100% free for the public on fields such as Hospitality, Retail Sales, Human Resources, Basic Security and Customer Service.
