“Although the fair is primarily virtual, we will hold an in-person Opening Ceremony at the Santiago headquarters on November 20.”

“This event will provide a valuable networking opportunity and the possibility to interact directly with experts and prominent professionals,” explained IGS in a statement.

The central focus of the fair will be the impact of technology and artificial intelligence on the financial sector, considering the growing influence of technology in finance and the recent approval of the Fintech Law.

During the fair, three cycles of talks and workshops will address key topics, such as strengthening employability skills, promoting knowledge about various employing companies, and transforming the financial market through technology and artificial intelligence.

Furthermore, through the platform, companies and organizations can post professional internship vacancies or job offers, both full-time and part-time, free of charge.
