Likeajob.com.au takes the guess work out of recruiting the right person for the right job by using ‘dating site’ technology to match employers to job seekers based on location,qualifications, skills and experience.
Having launched in early 2015, Likeajob is quickly becoming the platform of choice for Canberra’s Gen Y job seekers who literally live through their mobile phones.
Job seekers simply create a free profile and list their last 3 places of employment, areas of specialty and highest level of education. They can then view their job matches and ‘like’ any to send their profile
directly to the employer.
“They can apply for 5 jobs in 5 seconds and there’s no middle man.They can also advise if they are available now or just ‘open to offers’,Managing Director, Chris Hansen said.
It’s free for employers to post as many jobs as they like and the best matched candidates rise to the top of the list.
But it’s better than a job board. Employers can effectively ‘head hunt’ by ‘liking’ any profile to send the job description to the job seeker. If the job seeker also ‘likes’ the job, the employer can get in touch from as little as $9.90 a pop,” Chris said.
Recruiting for a role is a lengthy, time consuming and expensive process. It’s important to open the lines of communication, or risk your chance of hiring the wrong person.
“At Likeajob, our custom built algorithm – the ‘Like-O-Meter’provides a percentage match to users, allowing employers to see how well the candidates stack up to a job. You only pay for results, not to post the ad,” Mr Hansen explained.
According to Mr Hansen Likeajob is working beautifully in the hospitality, construction, administration and child care sectors.
“With nearly 8000 job seekers registered on the site, why not post a free job ad for your business today and see who’s out there that you like?” Mr Hansen concluded.
