GetLinks to host Thailand's first Metaverse Job Fair

GetLinks, the HR Tech leader in Asia, will launch Thailand's first Metaverse Job Fair to bring fresh tech talent opportunities for tech employment in a new hybrid and immersive experience while reinforcing Thailand's digital economy in the long term.

GetLinks’ Metaverse MetaLINKS also prepares for an open public LAND sale by this August.

“We will enhance the HR experience by launching and hosting Thailand’s first Metaverse Job Fair, a hybrid event where tech employers will meet with prospective tech talents. This event will serve as a change in people’s working style in the post-pandemic period,” said Pichaya Srifar, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of GetLinks.

The Metaverse Job Fair is designed by embracing innovative technology, interactive communication, interesting activities, and information. It will allow people to find jobs and provide the best people for the team from the comfort of their home. This will cut down transportation costs and they can go through as many companies/candidates as they would like. Exchanging information is also easier since it’s already based online.

Under this Job Fair, the GetLinks Tech City campaign brings companies with vacant tech positions and tech talents together. This way, candidates looking for jobs can explore all job opportunities in one place and can try out for interviews right there and then, without having to apply and wait for days for answers.

This campaign is a collaboration with the Digital Economy Promotion Agency (DEPA), the seven top universities in Thailand and other community partners, namely, True Digital Park, FutureSkill and AIESEC.

This will give an opportunity for selected talents to show their leadership, adaptiveness and passion for the tech industry as well as giving companies the chance to meet a bigger pool of candidates so the company can find them the ‘best-fitting’ talents.

The second phase GetLinks Tech City campaign follows its success in the UniTalent campaign first phase where it had 20 top tech companies with over 90 positions onboarded to introduce students from seven universities into the tech industry from different sectors.

GetLinks Tech City enables tech talents to meet virtually and interact with over 100 potential employers and 1000 job opportunities, of which 80% are expected to be IT-based where developers, data scientists, and IT engineers will dominate. The virtual event will be held during July 21-22, 2022 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. in GetLinks Tech City. Gather Town of MetaLinks Accenture, FWD, buzzebees, Krungsri, Lazada, and Bitkub have all recently joined. 

“We have many features to help companies find the perfect talents and candidates find the perfect job ranges,” said Mr. Pichaya. “A CV Clinic helps candidates polish their CVs plus there’s an interview room, a job board, a candidates board and company booths.”

MetaLINKS is expected to be completed in June and the private sale of MEDIUM and LARGE LAND to be finished within July 2022 and open for public sale by August 1.

Job seekers can apply for jobs at MetaLINKS by this December and interested firms can Create Virtual Offices on MetaLINKS by March 2023.

Last but not least, there are expected to be 30 GetLinks Vouchers for usecase of LINKS Tokens including for food and beverage, cosmetics (EVE AND BOY/GoWabi), and entertainment (MONOMAX), sports store (Decathlon), and shopping (Lazada).
