Malawi’s job website Myjobo.com which was launched two years ago to improve job advertising and access in Malawi boasts of over 23,000 registered users who receive daily job advertisement updates by email.
Myjobo.com, Malawi’s largest online jobsite, is now celebrating two years of existence as it continues on its quest towards connecting employers with potential employees.
Myjobo.com Manager Bertha Mambala explained that companies can now also start buying advertising space.
“We have grown and we are now a fully functional site with more big employers registering and advertising jobs with us. Our platform enables thousands of people who are unable to access job vacancies and tips through other means, “ Mambala said.
Two years ago, Myjobo.com was launched as a pilot to help employers reduce job advertising costs, improve efficiency in recruitment processes, and increase access to job opportunities and related information among Malawians.
The jobsite boasts of 176 registered employers with over 7,000 job vacancies posted on the site in the two years of its existence and Myjobo.com has had over 6 million visits carried out by over 350,000 unique visitors while the Facebook page has over 93,000 fans.
Gloria Zimba, Human Resources Manager at Chibuku Products Limited is one of an early adopter, who said they have used Myjobo.com since 2014 and they have found it an ideal and very effective medium for reaching out to the best Malawian talent.
“Chibuku Products gets responses within 10 minutes after posting a job advertisement. We receive over 70 percent of the applications within the first week of posting a job advert. Being online means that people can find job vacancies anytime and share with their friend,” said Zimba.
Employers advertise jobs on Myjobo.com for free once registered and can immediately post job vacancies online.
