Impactpool Virtual Career Fair for Asia-Pacific Nationals

Click to scroll to main page content

Join Impactpool for an exclusive Virtual Career Fair on Thursday, November 21st, from 06:30 to 12:30 CET (see this in your time zone). This event is tailored to support partner organizations in diversifying their talent pools and empowering professionals aspiring to make an impact in their careers. Engage in enlightening workshops and interact directly with HR personnel from prominent international organizations excited to connect with talent from the Asia Pacific region.

The decades preceding the COVID-19 crisis saw sizable economic growth rates in many Asian countries but shrinking labour income shares and only limited gains on decent work outcomes. Economic growth in the region has linked to the creation of formal jobs and, to a certain degree, wage employment. But it has not linked to the transformation of informal to formal employment for workers already in that status nor to the betterment of decent work outcomes for the majority of the region’s workers. The challenge moving forward will be to increase and sustain public investment in labour market institutions to achieve decent work outcomes in all sectors, but especially those where the majority of people work.

Among all sectors examined in the three-decade period of 1991–2021, only five experienced higher employment gains for women than men.3 With the segregation of men into sectors that offer higher wage potential (like IT) and women remaining in lower-paying sectors (accommodation and food service activities, for example), progress on closing the gender wage gaps within many countries has been stalled. Making progress towards wage equity will require battling it from several fronts: (i) promoting pay equity at the enterprise level in all sectors; (ii) encouraging women to work in higher-paying sectors and occupations; (iii) educating women in fields with higher wage potential (like IT); and (iv) overcoming norms of discrimination on the hiring of women in the male-dominant sectors.

Main booth.

  • Information, jobs and chats

  • Explore information about the organization

  • See highlighted jobs, (check out their individual websites and/or Impactpool to see more vacancies)

Request to have a 1-on-1 chat.

In the Main booth, click the green button when the chat is live for that organization. You can request to chat with multiple organizations. You'll be automatically connected when someone is available. 

Once a representative is available you will be connected to the chat. The representative can view your uploaded  CV.

The chats are mainly an introduction, and a possibility to explore and interact. They are not formal interviews, rather an opportunity to learn more about the organization, vacancies, share your profile etc. It is foremost your responsibility to check out which positions would suit you best and advocate to the rep why that is. 

Most organizations will require you to apply according to their regular application process. We strongly encourage you to start the chat with displaying your interest in the organization. Highlight your profile, your skills and experiences. Ask your questions about career opportunities, work culture in the organization, what profiles they are looking for etc. 

We recommend that you do not start the chat by saying “What jobs do you have for me”. Don't try "hard sell" yourself, but rather create an interactive and meaningful human interaction, ask the rep how they are doing and thank them for their time, we are sure they will appreciate it.

If you experience any difficulties with the event platform, start by refreshing your browser window, try turning things off and on again (tab, window, browser, computer, wifi etc.) There is a Help section in your event panel on the left.
