Impactpool is hosting an online Career Event on Thursday, the 30th of November 06:30-12.30 CET, (see this in your time zone), aimed at supporting partner organizations to diversify their talent pipelines and empowering professionals pursuing a career within the impact sector. Attend insightful workshops and chat directly with HR staff from leading international organizations seeking to engage with nationals from the Asia-Pacific region.
“Although Asia-Pacific employment trends look positive, the region’s labour market is not yet back on its pre-crisis track with numerous additional challenges casting shadows on future growth prospects. It is vital that we bring inclusive and human-centred growth back to the region and not settle for a ‘quasi’ recovery based on informal and poor-quality jobs,” said Ms Chihoko Asada Miyakawa, ILO Assistant Director-General and Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific.

Enjoy a day of interaction with HR reps through live sessions and one-to-one chats. Use your time well and explore your next career path!
In the Lobby, you find two types of booths per organization:
Listen to a live presentation (follow the link to Zoom) and take the opportunity to ask your questions to the presenters
Potential recordings and presentation slides are not necessarily shared after the event. If they are shared, it is done by the organization.
Explore information about the organization
See highlighted jobs, (check out their individual websites and/or Impactpool to see more vacancies)
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.
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. If you are listening to a live presentation at this time, you will be “pulled” out of the live presentation. You will be able to re-enter the presentation via the lobby.
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.
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”.
