JobStreet goes hyperlocal by launching microsites and having a virtual career fairs in several regions this coming Labor day



If you are one of those looking for a job, this one is for you.  JobStreet, a leading online job portal will be having an online job fair this coming Labor Day.  JobStreet is going hyperlocal as it launches its dedicated microsite for Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao. The initiatives help boost the job market in provinces as the public is encouraged to decongest Metro Manila following the ongoing pandemic.

Jobseekers from Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao can now browse thousands of jobs available in their locality through the respective microsites. Candidates can also learn from work-life guides and advice from JObStreet’s career hub will be written in their local dialect.

“Many Filipinos recently returned to their provinces because of layoffs of the new work from home arrangements and this caused a shift in the labor market. We’ve also observed that candidates from major provinces have increased their activities in terms of platform website visits, which is why we really targeted to promote local employment and provide them valuable support in their career through their own dialect,” said JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.


Hyperlocal Microsites

The microsite for Cebu offers opportunities from the top industries with 12.5% from Call Centers, 7.6% from Manufacturing industries, 6.5% from Healthcare, 5.5% from Education, and 5.2% from Construction industries. As of the moment the average salary reported in Cebu is Php 31,487.

Candidates from Davao can also apply for jobs with an average salary of Php 27,370. These top industries are coming from 13.6% Healthcare, 9.2% from Call Centers, 8.3% from Education, 5.6% from Constructions, and 5.3% from Food & Beverage industries.

As of 2021, JobStreet earned a 13% growth in average platform visit from Cebu, 56% from Davao, and 44% in Iloilo. Moreover, hirers from the said provinces are gradually picking up. Based on the JobStreet Database as of March 2021, job offerings based in Central Visayas grew by 9% from a sharp decline in 2020. Western Visayas recently jumped to a 44% increase in job openings, while Davao Region is also recovering with 26% job postings this year.

Ensuring that the initiative will be advantageous for both local hirers and candidates, JobStreet is also establishing a local team in each province to accommodate queries.
