  • FactSet Philippines Inc. partnered with one of the leading universities in the country, the University of the Philippines (Diliman Campus), for an online career fair held on April 3, 2020. The event was organized by the university's Career Assistance Program. This is in line with the career fairs that were recently cancelled due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) that was implemented in the region to fight against COVID-19 pandemic. The online career fair was attended by Business/Finance major students from the premier university who are looking for employment and internship opportunities. The Manila Talent Acquisition Team received questions from interested applicants regarding qualifications and the processes for open positions. With the help of this event, the team acquired additional applications that were processed particularly for Research Analysts and Client Solutions Advisors despite the ongoing lockdown and ECQ that Manila is facing.
