Online job portal JobStreet partners with technology news website Tech in Asia (TIA) to bring the career fair called “Hire the Future” scheduled on March 9-11. Job-seekers will have access to thousands of digital and tech-related job opportunities across Southeast Asia.
About 900 hirers from Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines will participate in the simultaneous career fair.
Filipino jobseekers can sift through the more than 80,000 opportunities, including 2,000 tech jobs, within the JobStreet platform. These jobs are being offered by more than 200 local companies such as Globe, ePLDT, BDO Unibank, Cognizant, ING Bank, among others.
“It has always been at the core of JobStreet to provide jobs that matter. We are grateful to partner with Tech in Asia in launching Asia’s biggest career fair to bring the freshest and most in-demand tech and digital jobs to each country, especially now that job markets are ready for digital transformation,” said Philip Gioca, country manager, JobStreet Philippines.
Filipino applicants can explore more than a thousand jobs in the country with some positions available like IT Helpdesk, IT Developer, IP Network Engineer, Java Developer among others. The digital acceleration prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic saw the increasing need for key roles in IT Development, JAVA, Cloud, and SQL, to name a few.
This region-wide initiative is in line with SEEK Asia’s evolving “Let’s Get To Work” campaign, which is targeted at encouraging participation and empowerment in the workforce. The portal also aims to connect jobseekers with Asia’s top companies with an accessible platform to search for jobs that are meaningful to them.
“Hire The Future” virtual career fair will have a mobile-first interface to enable employers and candidates to seamlessly participate virtually. Candidates and employers can access the virtual platform for on-the-spot recruitment through real-time connection via chat and online interview schedulers.
Jobseekers will have the opportunity to interact with some of the participating companies such as Food Panda, Xendit, Carousell, YouTrip, Gcash, Gojek, Grab, The Parent Inc., and Aspire through virtual office tours and masterclasses on career talks and tips that will be available on-demand via the website during the virtual career fair period.
In preparation for the upcoming virtual career fair, JobStreet advised candidates to update their resume upon registration with relevant skills, rehearse virtual interviews, and research on the position and company they are vying for.
Through this initiative, JobStreet also aims to empower the employers from participating countries by giving them access to millions of digital and tech talent and various features in the platform.
