An online recruitment site to provide a platform for free job advertising to companies and free job searching service to all job seekers for Malawi ‘Myjobo.com’ has been launched,.
According to Geoffrey Banda, the Operations Director for Myjobo.com, the offers “a wealth of benefits outside formal jobs. We call this Jobonology.”
Banda explained that as Malawians increasingly turn to the internet as their main source of information, Myjobo.com offers companies and job seekers alike a safe way to advertise and recruit.
“With Facebook and other social media becoming ever more popular, an online recruitment site is essential in today’s market,” he said. “Providing companies and organizations with a potentially much larger pool of candidates than traditional recruitment methods can reach, Myjobo.com gives access to not just local, but Malawians staying abroad too.”
Acting Director at Commonwealth, who is mentoring the Myjobo.com Team Watipaso Mkandawire, said he was approached to review this project concept and he is more than convinced that Myjobo.com offers the right solutions to Malawi’s human resources initiatives at this time when technology is ruling in all aspects.
“Malawians in Diaspora have their prayers answered – especially those that want to go back and contribute to the development of the country. They can apply for jobs online,” said Mkandawire.
Myjobo.com which will operate as a completely free service provides a platform beyond formal jobs or occupations and features a careers section offering advice to those entering the job market or needing help on where to go next.
The site is also interactive as visitors can also comment or ask any questions on any particular advertised job.
