In the listing, the logo, the job title, the company name, the publication date, the location, the experience required, the level of education, the salary and the hours are visible.

Bossjob: The First Job Hiring Website to Offer Rewards from Grab, Lazada
Your job search should be fun and rewarding, according to Bossjob.ph, the job portal for professionals in Philippines
Makati, Philippines, 19 December 2018 - Recruiters have long struggled with the arduous process of hiring the right candidates. This inefficiency leads to long working hours, wasted resources and under-par candidates being hired. Yolo Technology Pte. Ltd., a company founded with the mission to enrich lives through technology, resolved this recruitment problem by launching Bossjob.ph, a job search website for professionals in the Philippines. Now it is easier for job seekers and recruiters to connect with one another and find the perfect match.
Launched in September 2017, Bossjob has over 12,000 registered companies hiring and hundreds of thousands of registered users. Bossjob is more than an ordinary job search website; it strives to offer innovative features to enhance the job seeking and hiring process.
With the intention to make job search and recruitment more rewarding, the platform came up with its very own reward feature known as the BossPoints. Released in October 2018, the BossPoints feature set Bossjob apart from other job sites as they are the first to reward users as they search for jobs or hire candidates.
Bossjob users get 200 BossPoints upon sign-up, and can start earning more by completing simple tasks such as daily login, sharing of job posts via Facebook, applying for jobs, posting jobs, hiring candidates and more. Users can then redeem their accumulated BossPoints for vouchers from well-known brands like LAZADA, GRAB, GMovies and Petron. This means Bossjob users can get rewarded for their job search and hiring efforts, a refreshing concept compared to other players in the industry.
Having seen a gap in the market, Bossjob goes beyond the traditional job search site to push out pioneering features within a sleek, user-friendly interface. ‘BossPoints’ transforms the process of job hunting and candidate hiring from boring and mundane to an enriching and rewarding experience.
