Myjobo.com, the country’s online recruitment portal, will from August this year transition from a mostly free online recruitment services provider into a social impact Malawian business, a statement from the company has said.
This means the firm will be providing paying job advertising and talent search services to employers looking for fast, modern and cost-effective recruitment services.
Over the past three years, Myjobo.com has been pioneering online recruitment movement in Malawi.
The firm’s founder Kondwani Mwangulube said speed, low cost, flexibility and reach are among the most common factors cited by recruiters when considering online job advertising or recruitment.
“Employers advertising on Myjobo.com have reported receiving applications within 15 minutes after a position appeared on the website. That shows how effective and trustworthy our job site is,” he said in a statement.
Mwangulube said the transition of the job site to a paying business model is a reflection of the increasing value that time conscious and busy employers and human resources professionals place on Myjobo.com.
“Many non-governmental organisations and private sector employers have expressed willingness to pay for the services after satisfying results during the pilot phase,” he said.
The paying services will include online job advertising, staff vetting, curriculum vitae search and reference checks.
