Holding an online event to look for cross-border Fintech talent
The first cross-border online recruiting event (Fintech careers visual summit) was a three day event starting on May 25th this year. The event was held in major cities, such as New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore, with industry and cyber currency specialists covering a broad variety of topics ranging from careers advice to how to overseas recruitment.
It was an online summit, so there were no issues coming to the venue to participate; the event ended up as a great success. Those who were unfortunately unable to participate, but who are looking to work in the Fintech industry, can view a recording of the event for a $25 fee, up until August 31st.
Fintech finds some of its best talent from people who work from home (SOHO)
In recent years a new way of working and a new digital culture known as SOHO (Small Office, Home Office – working from home) has become more widespread. It is highly convenient: as long as you have the internet, you can do your job from anywhere you like. Fintech is in the news right now because it is competing hard to secure talent with the right skills and knowledge base. So this was an all-encompassing summit set up with the aim of searching out ideal talent from all over the world.
From the perspective of looking for a job opening in the FinTech industry, you can get advice from someone working internationally from their home in Japan or Taiwan; alternatively, a whole host of job advertisements give you a dream opportunity to sign contracts with businesses in Paris or Singapore.
There was a full line-up of key figures from the Fintech industry on hand to give advice, including Andrew Keys, founder of Consensys, the pioneering Blockchain platform; Nako Mbele, CEO of the Toronto Fintech services business, Fintech Recruiters; and Oscar Jofre, CEO of the equity crowdfunding business, KoreConX.
“What kind of talent Fintech is looking for” and “Opportunities for business tie-ups with virtual currency businesses” – you could listen to industry experts’ opinions on these and other topics. Also it was an opportunity to hear about the experts’ own valuable experiences and for participants to ask questions.
The next event has not been scheduled yet, but the video of the event on the website until the end of August provides a good opportunity for increasing our understanding of the Fintech sector.
