Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created by Sterling Tech (which used to be Openovate Labs), Jobayan has only been around for about a year, which explains their low visibility (only 159 020 clicks per month). However, they have many things going for them, including an interesting blog, some employment tools and reactive staff. Their followers are mostly on Facebook (just under 30 000) and they have 94 841 users (jobseekers and recruiters) according to the website. They have even joined forces with theTrinity Asian University to help graduates find work.
Design: Light blue is the dominant colour of the website. The homepage has candidate profiles continuously scrolling vertically down the page with names, photos and a sentence about what they are looking for. There is also a form for new candidates to fill out if they wish to appear on the wall. The page also features a number of jobs, the blog article, salary calculator and graphs (graduates in the work place, the job market in a particular era). Each job offer has an “interested” button, which indicates how many candidates are interested (it also sends your details to the company). The best paying jobs appear on the right-hand side and the search engine (in two parts) is at the top of the page. At the bottom of the page, we have the top industries, the top locations and the top positions. When looking through job offers, you actually look through jobs and candidates, in order of the latest, the most popular, the company or jobseekers. The pages are relatively similar: the jobseekers and companies have their joining date (and if the company recruits often), keywords, similar profiles/jobs/companies and the “I am ____, looking for ____”summary sentence. The filters include the kind of advert (seeker or company), the location, the industry and the hours. If you click on a job offer, you get the job qualifications and the benefits.
The job board objective: It’s all about simplifying the job search and matching jobseekers with the right companies. "Jobayan" means "job community" and they really to strive to create a community for their users.
Recruiter observations: To create an account, you need to “request a quote”. When you click on a jobseeker profile, it tells you when they joined the website. They also give you similar jobseekers and popular jobseekers.
Jobseeker observations: It’s very easy to create an account, but you need to be in the Philippines (or at least know the city you want to work in). Your profile remains on the website for 60 days and they check if you are real person with Facebook or Linkedin, so you do need to have one or the other. As for jobs, you can choose to be notified when the company matches your search or if a company likes your profile.
The job offers: The most popular industries (based on the users research) are administration and skilled trades.
Reactivity: They respond very quickly, and there is also a chat support but you need a Facebook account to use it.
Special features: The salary calculator (which does not work); the verified badge; the featured Facebook campaign; Chatbot; the interview scheduler; the blog (interesting articles); the “interested” button; similar companies; the graduate employment statistic pie charts; the superhero images for profiles without photos; the industry summary (with references); rankings and points; the forums.
Verdict: Despite some small flaws, Jobayan is a charming job board with a lot to offer for jobseekers ad recruiters alike. It is so easy to browse through the candidates looking for work. It is just getting started so they desperately need to get more job offers for their job seekers, but we have high hopes for Jobayan.
