Get in contact with the Faroese labour market on Jobmatch 2021

Because of the corona restrictions here on the Faroe Islands the organizers have decided to postpone the physical Jobmatch event that was supposed to take place on the 29th December in the Nordic House. Although corona has made it difficult for us to meet face to face, we are still able to meet virtually through virtual meetings.

If you have a higher education, have acquired skills within a certain trade, or have a professional experience and would like to engage in the Faroese job market, Jobmatch might be the right event for you to attend. At Jobmatch you can expand your business network to companies and institutions that will be participating in the virtual Jobmatch event. Jobmatch is a unique opportunity to learn more about job possibilities in the Faroe Islands and to introduce yourself to potential employers.

This year the organizers have developed a new feature on the www.jobmatch.fo webpage to make it possible for you to book a virtual JobPrát (JobTalk) meeting with those participants that you would like to get in contact with. A JobPrát is a short informal conversation with those Jobmatch participants, that you would like to get in contact with.

If you would like to participate at the virtual Jobmatch event you must register by clicking on the green button *Melda til Jobmatch* in the upper right corner. Hereafter you can book a JobPrát with those businesses that you would like to get in contact with. Some of the participants have specific timeslots on the 29th that you can book, and others give you the opportunity to book an unspecified timeslot (blue button *Umbið talgilt JobPrát*). After booking an unspecified timeslot the participant will contact you to find a suitable meeting time. The JobPrát meeting is to take place on your personal Jobmatch profile under *Míni JobPrát* by clicking on the specific participant.

When you register at jobmatch.fo it is recommendable to complete the registration sheet as accurately as possible. The participating private and public business have access to the below information about you:

–        Age
–        The business areas that have your interest
–        Educational status
–        Name of education
–        Educational level
–        If you have attached a CV (only participants that you have booked a JobPrát with or from whom you have accepted a JobPrát will have access to you CV)

Hence, the above information will be displayed anonymously, so that the participants can see if your profile matches what they are looking for. The participant can book a JobPrát with you if there is a match. You will then receive notifications regarding this on your personal Jobmatch profile and by email and you are then to accept or deny the reserved JobPrát.

When you book a JobPrát with a participant or accept a reserved JobPrát this participant will get access to all your registered information. Before you accept a reserved JobPrát or book a JobPrát the participant will only see the above listed information about you. You can also update your Jobmatch profile at any time.

We hope to ‘see’ you at Jobmatch 2021. Book a JobPrát with those participants that you would like to get in contact with to grow your network. Deadline to book a JobPrát and get in contact with the Faroese labour market is on the 28th December at midnight.
