recruit.net 101

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
-Mohandas K. Gandhi.

So this is where it begins, with the desire for change. With the motivation to solve a problem, and deliver a solution.

We believe that the internet is best place to find a new job. The problem is that the process of searching for jobs on the internet is becoming more and more time consuming and complicated. Where do you go on the internet when you want to find a job? Do you visit the large job sites? Do you search the newspapers online classifieds ? Do you visit the web site of your favorite recruitment agency to check their new postings? Do you go directly to the career section on Microsoft or Google’s web site?

Herein lies the problem for the job seeker. Too many searches, too much information, too many places to go.

Our goal with recruit.net is to make online job searching fun and easy. We visit thousands every day searching for all the latest jobs. We include listings from company web sites, newspapers, job boards, associations and wherever else we can find them and we make them all accessible free of charge to the job seeker through one simple search.

We built this service on the basis of two fundamental beliefs:

1) The growth of the online job market in Asia Pacific is going to be phenomenal. The global classified publishing industry is becoming an online business and Asia Pacific is still far beihind the USA in the transition from traditional media (offline) postings to online postings. The number of job sources online is growing rapidly and that trend is not going to stop. We estimate that by 2008, 90% of the Fortune 500 and 65% of the Asia Pacific SME’s (small and medium sizes enterprises) will have comprehensive career sections with job listings on their web sites.

2) The internet is a perfect medium for job search. Unlike countless other business that are just wasting their time online.The benefits of instantaneous publishing and distribution are ideally suited to the business of job search and recruitment. Within seconds of an employer writing a job specification it can be electronically matched and distributed to thousands of qualified candidates. Similarly from a job seeker perspective services like recruit.net job alerts deliver daily updates of jobs from thousands of online sources matching specific criteria including combinations of keywords, locations, dates and even company names. The power of the internet and it’s implications on jobs & recruiting are only just taking shape!

We’re just beginning to, so please give us your feedback and suggestions, try out our search, or browse for jobs by country and industry, upload your resume, and help spread the word. Whether you’re looking to work as a reporter in Beijing, an Accounting Manager in Tokyo or perhaps a dive instructor in Australia you’ve come to the right place. Welcome.

    I am thinking for a job search engine for long time. Good to see someone else do it. Still looking if it includes most of available online sources or not, well, we will see.
