Manulife set to run second Virtual Career Fair for the Philippines

23 November, 2020

Following the success of Manulife's first Virtual Career Fair held in July 2020, Manulife Philippines are set to launch their second event taking place on the 7th December 2020, for one-week.

Both virtual fairs have been designed to attract and engage with talent in the Philippines. Sharing jobs from across the business and the opportunity to chat with Manulife team members via live chat rooms. What made the first virtual fair so impactful was the process and functionality design that enabled the HR and TA teams the opportunity to interact and screen candidates, while the rest of the business (including individuals at the AVP level) the ability to represent their department from the comfort of their own home. Hiring teams managed their own booths, interacting with candidates via text-based chat, video or audio as well as providing live job listings and useful material such as videos and brochures. Manulife's focus on building valuable relationships and connections, resulted in a record-breaking time-to-hire experience for some, some receiving offers within 48 hours from their first interaction. All of which supports Manulife's position as an employer of choice across the Philippines.

With nine departmental booths, the July 2020 fair surpassed the original goals in terms of attendance and application numbers, achieving a staggering 99.3% attendance rate. Over 2,500 chat sessions were conducted during the course of the five-day fair, all of which were highly targeted and scheduled. Creating a fantastic opportunity to engage in real-time, two-way dialogue. Close to 100 representatives from across the business were available online, providing this invaluable experience and connection to jobseekers in the market.

"Our first Virtual Career Fair was for Manulife Business Processing Services (MBPS) and I will admit, I was a little nervous at first because I didn't know what to expect. However, the experience was a great success. By getting it one together and thinking big, the Talent Acquisition and Sourcing team was able to implement the first Manulife's virtual career fair aligned with our bold ambition to be a digital-customer centric leader in the industry. We were able to reach out and speak with people across the Philippines and internationally. We've had applicants who also provided their feedback and shared that they were amazed how it we set-up the system easy to navigate. This was a great platform that allowed us to target candidates who were specially interested in Manulife's unlimited opportunities which is not always the case when we join regular job fairs. We would like to thank SeeMeCV for all the coordination and efforts. The event was a success!" John Philip Bertiz, Manulife Sourcing Manager Asia.

"It has been fantastic working with the Manulife team in the Philippines. We are extremely proud of the work achieved by the team, designing and delivering their first virtual fair in just 17 working days. It is testament of our client delivery and commitment of agility, speed, customisation and responsiveness. We are delighted to be working with the team again on their second Virtual Fair. We can't wait to see the results of this one!" SeeMeCV representative.
