Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: In 1997, Jobstreet was created by Malaysian businessman, Mark Chang Mun Kee, who also created the e-payment enabler website, MOL.com. In 2014, SEEK bought the aggregator to extend their Asian reach (they already owned 60% of JobsDB and 78.2% of Zhaopin). Jobstreet was definitely a smart move because it is the leading job board in the Philippines (34th most active website, with a steady 5.4million visits per month), has 12 500 followers on Twitter, 1 031 019 on Facebook and it offers a wide range or recruiting services. It is present in Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam and has an extensive list of partners.
Design: Large images of happy people at the office or using their phone are featured on the homepage. To access the job offers, you can click on “search jobs” which leads to a listing with filters on the left-hand side (keyword, location, specialization, salary). You can display all the jobs, only the ones in the Philippines or only international ones and each job offer indicates the job title, the company name and logo, a description, the salary (optional), the location and the publication date. If you click on “specialization”, you can access the number of jobs per category. To view the offers, you can sort them by date, job title, company, location or salary. The job adverts themselves are very long, they can include a description of the company, the company snapshot (information about the company), company overview, “why join us” and the location. As for the company pages, they have ratings from employees, the overview and other particularities (benefits, dress code, etc.). Submitting an application is very easy. Their events section has been abandoned since 2012 and oddly enough, some job adverts are not secure.
The job board objective: Jobstreet offers all kinds of feedback for recruiters and jobseekers to make the recruitment process easier.
Recruiter observations: Creating an account is easy and they use the SiVA recruitment center for your dashboard (with a focus on the calendar). You can access the CV database for free but company verification is required before you can retrieve any resumes (which means you need to send your registration number). Names and photos are hidden but many filters are available to look through candidates (education, languages, work experience, last active, etc.) and the job board can even recommend CVs. You need to call them for the cost of packages, but other prices can be found on the website, and you can even purchase classifieds advert space. In your advert, you need to include the salary (Jobstreet gives you the average salary for similar positions in case you are not sure of what the salary should be). They also create the advert for you with the basic information you included. You need a company registration number.
Jobseeker observations: Creating an account appears to be easier than it actually is because you need to fill out sections after validating your e-mail address (or Facebook), but they do not check the consistency of your information. The dashboard is very straightforward. Companies have ratings, which you can then dub “helpful” in order to make it easier to sort them (recent or most helpful). When applying to a job offer, you can see who else applied (including information about their background) and how long it usually takes the company to process candidates.
The job offers: There are 81 979 job offers. Sales (11 841) and services (17 987) are by far the categories with the most job offers but many other categories also have thousands of job offers. In fact, Jobstreet has almost 30 000 more jobs than it did at the same time last year.
Reactivity: They answer within a day with a lot of information.
Special features: job alerts; feedback request; advert writing tools and aid; similar companies; the blog (in Career Resources); company reviews; information about who else applied; the CV-database; the “helpful” review button; the safe job search guide.
Verdict: Jobstreet is a great website for recruiting in the Philippines. The CV database alone is worth checking out for recruiters, and jobseekers will appreciate the information concerning the different companies.
