Summer Jobmatch 2022

Finally, we will be able to meet in person when the postponed Jobmatch event will take place in the Nordic House on the 26th August from 12.00-18.00.

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, Summer 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 physical Jobmatch event. Jobmatch is a unique opportunity to learn more about job possibilities in the Faroe Islands and to introduce yourself to potential employers.

The organizers have developed a feature on the Jobmatch webpage to make it possible for you to book a JobPrát (JobTalk) meeting with participants that you would like to get in contact with. A JobPrát is a short informal conversation where you can explain a little about your work experience and education, and learn about the participant.

If you would like to participate at the Summer Jobmatch event you are to 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. The JobPrát meeting will be held at the partisipant’s booth in the Nordic House on the 26th of August 2022. If you already registered in the Jobmatch portal and have a user, you should only click on the blue button *Rita inn*.

It will be possible to book JobPrát from early July and the deadline for booking is on the 25th August at 8pm.

If you are not able to visit the Jobmatch event in the Nordic House on the 26th August it will also be possible to book a virtual JobPrát with the participants. After booking a virtual (talgilt) JobPrát the participant will contact you to find a suitable meeting time and media. Please note that in July and August most companies have summer holidays so you can expect the participant to contact you regarding a JobPrát late August.

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 Summer Jobmatch 2022. 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 25th August at 8pm
