So I attended a one of a kind Job Fair / Recruitment Party last night at the Elbow Room, Metrowalk, Ortigas Center. It’s called Hired and it’s powered by JobsDB. It’s a one of a kind, Recruitment Party and the first of its kind. Instead of a usual Job Fair in a mall that starts at Mall Hours until 5PM, this Recruitment Party by JobsDB started around 4PM in one of the most famous gimmick place in the Metro. It was followed by a party around 8 PM with drinks! Now that’s something unique.
The companies that were present during this unique Recruitment Party were Alorica, West, Hinduja, HGS, Sutherland, Taotec, Stellar, VXI, Teleperformance, WeSelect, Genpac and Unison among others. The host of the party was Rico Robles and it was sponsored by Tanduay Ice, Zalora Philippines, Gatsby, Star City, Philippine Bloggers Network and When In Manila, Adobo Magazine among others.
I accompanied my friend in this event but I also manage to apply at 2 companies. It was more of initial interviews and then they’ll make a follow-up on Monday for more tests and interviews. The timeframe was only about 4 hours and I agree that they can’t do a full interview-tests-job offer during this event. I hope my friend and the jobseekers present last night would definitely receive a follow-up call to continue their job application. I applaud JobsDB for coming up with such a concept and hopefully; other recruitment firms and job fairs would be as fun and exciting as this one.
The Elbow Room is located on the 2nd floor of the Metrowalk in Ortigas Center. It’s our first time to the venue and it’s perfect for the Hire Recruitment Party.
Snacks were provided to jobseekers while waiting for their turn to be interviewed. JobsDB’s party is definitely worth attending.
Prizes were given away to those jobseekers who participated in the party.
Laptops were provided so that jobseekers can visit the JobsDB website to look for jobs while waiting for their turn to be interviewed.
The Elbow Room in Metrowalk is equipped with billiard tables. Jobseekers take advantage of this amenity while waiting for their turn to be interviewed.
The Hire Recruitment Party is also a great time to chat with friends about career growth.
