Global Online Job Fair
Migration is an important issue in Armenia. During the past years, migration has mainly been an outbound process, especially highly qualified professionals have been searching for job opportunities outside Armenia. It is obvious that this has a negative impact on the economic development within the country. As part of the “Mobility Partnership” between Armenia and the EU, a Targeted Initiative has been initiated by different EU member states which aims at strengthening Armenia‘s migration management capacities and puts special emphasize on reintegration activities.
One of the key activities of this project has been the Online Job Fair for Armenians who are currently working and living abroad. The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) has been responsible for organizing such an online event, where employers in Armenia can meet job seekers. The GIZ has decided to conduct this virtual event based on ubivent‘s software platform. Karine Simonyan, who is working for the GIZ in Yerevan (Armenia) as project manager, emphasizes the importance of this decision: “We have been the very first to organize such an online event for Armenia. Going with ubivent has been a natural decision. Their staff is very experienced in this kind of events. At any point in time during the project, the ubivent team has been on top of everything. Despite our role as pioneers in our country, we never had a second of doubt that the project will be anything but a huge success.”
