The GSS Virtual Talent Hub Fair will have lightning talk discussions, live recruitment, panel discussions that explore industry segments, a social media challenge, giveaways, and surprises. The event will take place online and is completely free for participants. Job seekers and students can get all the information they need about career opportunities in the global services industry. Previous events led to over 900 people being shortlisted for jobs or getting hired, so attendees can expect job opportunities at this edition of the event as well.

The GSS Project expects a great turnout based on the amazing results last year’s Virtual Talent Hub Fair attracted. The 2021 event saw 3,410 participants with 2,170 submitting applications to open roles.

Egbert von Frankenberg, Chairman of the Global Services Skills Council said, “The GSS Talent Hub Fair is a great platform designed for employers to connect with potential talent, promote their organization’s career prospects and benefit from a new form of engagement with its stakeholders. As Jamaica’s Global Services Sector grows, the demand for work-ready talent to provide value-added services is becoming the key competitive differentiator in selecting a location for outsourced services. There is a growing demand for professionals in the IT/ Software sector, Talent Development, HR, Finance, and Operations. The Global Services Skills Council encourages job seekers and career changers to take advantage of this Fair to learn about the ample opportunities available and explore meaningful career paths in the GSS.”

Muhammad Younas, the CEO of vFairs, stated, “Virtual platforms are the way to go for organizations highlighting job opportunities in various sectors. This case is a great example, as people all over Jamaica can explore careers in the global services sector without the need to travel.”

Registration is now open, and job seekers and students can register for free on the event website.
