In response to intensifying digitalization trends, SEEK Asia, the parent company of JobsDB, has partnered with Tech in Asia to host Asia's Biggest Virtual Career Fair for three days from 9 to 11 March 2022. Connecting corporations and recruiters from six countries and regions, including 90 multinational giants and local companies from various industries in Hong Kong, the event will also feature a prolific lineup of guest speakers who will be sharing their insights on the latest tech trends at daily webinars and digital skills masterclasses.

Over 90 large-scale enterprises from various industries recruiting candidates for an expansive range of both emerging and traditional job functions

Apart from investing in the e-commerce and logistics sector over the pandemic, more and more companies are jumping on the metaverse, augmented/ virtual reality and technological bandwagon to harness zero-contact business opportunities, which has in turn created more emerging job functions. In view of this, JobsDB has invited more than 90 multinational giants, local market-leading enterprises and start-ups to participate in the virtual career fair, including the globally renowned Nestlé Hong Kong Limited; the ubiquitous Hong Kong e-commerce platform HKTVmall; food delivery experts Deliveroo Hong Kong Limited; express logistics service provider S.F. Express (Hong Kong) Limited; and The Hong Kong Jockey Club, a world-class racing club that is also one of the world's top ten charity donors. On top of offering tech-related positions, these companies and organizations will also be hiring accounting, marketing and finance-related personnel and more for both frontline and back-office functions.

In tune with the theme of digital technology, the event will take place in a seamlessly virtual environment with a real-time online interactive platform that enables job seekers to communicate with, and even take interviews from recruiters anytime and anywhere on their mobile devices.

Webinars and digital workshops on hottest trending topics to help job seekers explore additional career opportunities

During the three-day fair, JobsDB will host webinars by A-grade guest speakers and digital skills masterclasses daily. Featuring star speakers from tech unicorns, startups and prominent enterprises, including Samuel Hui, Co-Owner and Chief Transformation Officer of HKBN Group; John Tsang, Founder of Esperanza; Zaf Chow, Director of Digital Strategy and Partnerships at blockchain gaming company Animoca Brands; and HKTV's Group Head of Talent Acquisition and Learning Jimmy Lee, the sessions will cover an array of topics from essential tips to land a job to the latest trends that can help professionals upgrade their skills in a growing digital world.

The webinars will let potential candidates in on the features and prospects of various industries and address topics such as cloud businesses, artificial intelligence (AI), the metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), e-commerce, digital transformation and upskilling for a thorough understanding on the industry's insights. Practical knowledge, including user interface, user experience, blockchain and big data, will also be offered through daily masterclasses (please refer to appendix 1).

"Companies have begun to digitize and automate their businesses to adapt to the new normal. Technologies such as blockchain and AI have impacted all walks of life, while 'Web 3.0' is expected to stay on everyone's lips, leading to a surging market demand for digital talents. No matter what they specialize in, candidates with relevant digital knowledge will certainly be one step ahead in the workplace.

Because of this current trend, we're hosting Asia's Biggest Virtual Career Fair, with a series of webinars and workshops to provide employees with the most up-to-date information and career advice for professionals to thrive in digital technology. Job seekers can thus actively equip themselves for the long haul, or even career switches," said Mr. Bill Lee, Managing Director of JobsDB Hong Kong.
