Metamorphosis Group, together with Sustainable PH and the Society of Sustainability Practitioners, is set to launch the first-ever Virtual Sustainability Career Fair this coming March!
Now in its second year, the Virtual Career Academy (VCA) Summit for 2022 is set to bring together employers, job-seekers, and organizations from around the Philippines and abroad to a one-of-a-kind career fair that highlights the theme of Sustainability. The 5-day event will be filled with career-centric activities for participants, including free resume and interview coaching sessions for job seekers to prepare for their job applications, career talks from the most prominent employers in the country, and company-hosted workshops and panel discussions to help employers and job seekers get to know each other better. If that’s not enough, there are also prizes to be won during the daily raffle for lucky participants!
Aside from the daily activities, the event will also spotlight the most prominent talents and employers leading the charge for sustainability through the Sustainability Talent and Employer Awards 2022. The categories include the Cura Personalis Award, Future-Forward Award, and Sustainability Driver Award for employers. Meanwhile, 20 Transformational Leaders, 20 Outstanding Individuals Ahead Of Their Time, and 20 Most Notable Changemakers will be recognized under the talents segment. Nominations open on February 5 (Sat), and winners will be announced on March 21 at the Virtual Career Academy Summit.
“The need for a more sustainable world today cannot be understated,” explains Shawntel Nieto, President of the Society of Sustainability Practitioners. “With this comes the desire people have to build careers centered on what they believe in, alongside the need for companies to become more sustainable in practice, vision, and values. We believe we have a multitude of both in the Philippines, and we are so excited to bridge the two through our upcoming career fair.”
From last year’s record of 17 industry speakers, 600+ participants, 115,000+ people reached, 15,000+ engagements, 17+ companies and employers, and 100+ job openings, the career fair is set to be bigger and better to add more value and diversity to the event.
“Congratulations on the success of VCA so far, MG! Can definitely see how much of an impact you’re making for job-seekers. Looking forward to continuously fortifying our collaboration in years to come. Cheers!” shares Georgia Martelino, Philanthropies Lead of Microsoft Philippines.
“It was awesome working with Metamorphosis Group for the VCA Summit, I had the opportunity to speak to aspiring candidates who are eager and motivated to be the best of themselves, and through our virtual booth and resource speaking, I hope that they have also understood more about cultivating an entrepreneur mindset,” expresses Robin Oh, Head of Training Operations of Reactor School Singapore.
“The event was just grand! It was well-planned and well thought of. It did not just touch points but rather discussed the whole concept of digitization in the eyes of different industries. As a speaker, I enjoyed how relatable the topic was and how engaged both the panel and the audience were. Metamorphosis Group packaged the event with timely relevant topics that may be intimidating for most but turned it into something that almost felt like talking to a friend. Kudos!” says Anna Sasaki, Account Manager of NextPay Philippines.
