More than 75 job seekers are currently being considered to join the local financial services industry.
That is according to BVI Finance, which is hosting a Financial Services Opportunities Expo next week to facilitate the process.
“We already knew that there were over 35 firms that were hiring. From the resumes that have been collected, our small team made up of human resources professionals within the industry are reviewing those resumes and working to match those with vacancies we have registered,” said event Chairman, Meade Malone.
He continued: “This is about creating real opportunities for people, and we are looking forward to success on March 22 at the Expo to push those resumes forward to make a connection that ends in persons being hired, or entrepreneurs finding meaningful relationships within our industry.”
Breakout and feedback sessions
A media release from BVI Finance said participants at the Expo will have opportunities to speak directly with firms and be interviewed for available positions.
They will also have a chance to attend breakout sessions surrounding professional development in the industry, and participate in feedback sessions designed for entrepreneurs.
“The Expo aims to help the islands rebuild by facilitating gainful employment. This initiative is from the Committee to Revitalize Financial Services of the Virgin Islands that was established last year. Later this year, similar expos will be planned for the tourism and general business industries,” BVI Finance said.
The venue for next week’s expo will be announced in the coming days.
