Even if the ‘new normal’ is starting to feel almost routine, we can’t escape the fact that the job market is going to be somewhat different from the one we knew only a few months ago. To find out what companies will be paying close attention to when assessing candidates, CareerCast caught up with Fran Thompson, managing director of Pathfinder Talent, a Hong Kong-based search firm that specialises in the fintech sector. In this episode, Fran identifies the different types of fintech roles, pointing out that some are more disruptive than others. You will also learn about the vital skills needed to impress today’s hiring managers. What’s more, Fran offers some guidance on personality testing and how it can help you stand out in a field of equally qualified applicants.
