It's great to see Manila coming back to being one of the iGaming hotspots in Asia.
It is with great pleasure to inform you that Ellen Frojd will succeed me as CEO of SmartRecruitment.com (SmartConsulting Inc). Ellen has been with the company since it started in 2018 and has held the roles of Recruitment Consultant and Head of Asia. During these years Ellen has shown super star quality and results which makes this a natural next step for her.
For myself, to hand over the CEO role to Ellen is my proudest work/career achievement ever - to be able to see the progress from the day I hired Ellen as my Assistant in Stockholm, to the day we moved to Manila and co-started SmartRecruitment.com, to the position we have today doing business in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
Go Ellen and well deserved. Cheers!
Founder (and Former CEO)
After a two-year pause from live events in Manila, it was finally time for some much-needed face-to-face networking!
It is always great to reconnect with old friends and meet new connections. If you're interested in attending one soon, keep an eye on SiGMA's Webpage for information on upcoming iGatherings and Gaming Festivals.
One of our recruiters responds to a question about how writing your resume in a specific way will help your application rise to the top of the stack on LinkedIn or any other ATS.
Q: How can I improve my CV or LinkedIn profile based on how a recruiter look for candidates?
A: Use (the right) Keywords in your resume and profile.
These are words or phrases that are particular in your line of work or role. It can be programming skills (Phyton, JAVA, etc.), language/s (Mandarin, Korean, French, etc.), market experience (ASIA, SEA, EU, etc.), action words (business growth, strategy work, budgeting, team management etc.).
Keywords play a huge role in search work from a recruiter’s perspective – and a great profile can easily be missed. It may improve your chances of being selected for an interview because your CV is clear and concise, and it may also appear at the top of an online search (LinkedIn, Google etc.) by recruiters. To know what keywords to use, you could for example look at JDs for roles you are interested in.
Another thing to always have in your CV would be a short introduction of yourself, summarizing your professional experience and what value you believe you will bring to the table.
Finally, if you can pick out and bullet some of your main career achievements, that is a great way for you to “brag” about yourself and in a clear way show your main accomplishments.
In terms of how the Blockchain is integrated into the wider framework, this technological foundation will allow users to transparently access the betting process as all bets and earnings would be recorded on a digital ledger that is publicly available for viewing.

Online gaming in India is still in its early stages, resulting to a host of taxation and valuation issues. The challenge it poses to the entire industry led the federal government to set up a panel to review its current legal requirements and any ambiguity around the valuation of casino, racetrack, and internet gambling services.
