The Baghdad Job Fair on 6 October 2007 was a success by any measure. Operation was smooth and
results in general were very good with a few exceptions. Unfortunately we were not able to get as many
registered companies to show up mostly because of another political rally that took place just outside
the front gate of our Job Fair venue. The Alwiya Club had ample space for all and our security, both
private and in cooperation with IP was on top of the situation. The event started as scheduled at
9:00AM and lasted until early afternoon. The estimated number of unemployed job seekers is 4,000.
