Live Opportunities in AP. AP GTa Opportunities are focused on Short-term BD, IT & MKT (supplying from Pakistan) & GTe Opportunities focused on long-term (supplying from Vietnam), our key players
[Left] applications applying to AP iGTa iGTe opportunities (main supply from AP & MEA); [Right] where our youth are applying to (main demand to AM & EU)

As we are working towards attraction, it is important to know the major SnDs in the region and plenary.

For iGTa iGTe: especially if you have opportunities that has been live for a while, you could consider repackaging them and promote once again to your IR partners

For oGTa oGTe: take the initiative to look for opportunities currently live / approach IR partners or any potential partners for alignment and attraction support.

Global Direction: Purpose Driven GTa & GTe
Building a GT Culture: shape process to support GTa GTe value proposition, align our membership to understand and be excited about what GTa GTe entails as well
Customer Experience Focus: we focus on shaping a better experience for our youths and partners

GTa & GTe focus:

- #OPEN & #APL peak (Constant synergy with marketing and IR partners)
- IR & SnD alignment (SnD Master: aies.ec/apgt2122master)

(Global MKT Campaign brief: http://aies.ec/vppmkt01)

Attraction GCP (iCX Vietnam): New OPENs

Achievement: 4 new openings in August

Pt #1: JD-based sales instead of field-based

Figured out that actually there is some positions in hiring market that has the high need, for example, IT positions, and not necessarily restricted in any industry, but rather there is a high need in almost all industry. Focus on the JD and offer it to different types of the company who is recruiting for that.

Pt #2: Choose the focus based on capabilities of Suppliers

Notice that most IT solutions companies would require a very high level of experience which we can not easily provide. The way to do is to shift focus into another field like Digital Marketing, Digital Service,… so that it is easier to align the requirements.

Pt #3: Understand the Decision Maker in different types of company

They figured out that with each type of company size the Decision Maker will be different. For example: For a company which has a scale of around 100–150 employees they found the Decision Maker will be Talent Acquisition Manager or HR Manager. So only when the focus is put on them, they have more results.

Knowing how to effectively and efficiently screen/interview candidates was another pain point many recruiters raised.
