JobStreet, the country’s top online job portal and career partner, has bagged two awards at the esteemed 19th IABC Philippine Quill Awards recently.
This year, the company secured recognitions for its entries Going Hyperlocal: JobStreet’s Microsite Launch under Marketing and Brand Communication Category; and COVIDCOMMS 2021: Boosting the Job Market through JobStreet’s Government Virtual Career Fairs under Government Relations Category.
Aiming to help boost the job market in provinces, the campaign “Going Hyperlocal ” introduced local employment opportunities in Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao with helpful guides and resources written in their respective dialect through a dedicated microsite platform. This initiative allowed province-based hirers to easily connect with nearby candidates and likewise encourage job seekers in finding jobs that matter in their locality to help decongest Metro Manila during the pandemic.
The other entry entitled “Boosting the Job Marketing through JobStreet’s Government Virtual Career Fairs” is in partnership with the Civil Service Commission which was held in 2020 and 2021. The program aimed to help boost the job market and economy by bringing together jobseekers and companies to present new employment opportunities nationwide, conveniently through a mobile-first design application and series of webinars.
“Since the pandemic, JobStreet has been ensuring the welfare of both our hirer and candidates and we are honored that our initiatives have been acknowledged by IABC Quill awards. This recognition only drives us to continue our mission of giving Filipinos the jobs that matter paired with insightful guidance to help them thrive in their industries and professions,” shared JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.
JobStreet has been actively extending its support to help stabilize the labor market through career webinars, virtual career fairs, and more to equip candidates in the new normal. Last year, JobStreet took home four awards for its #TogetherAhead: JobStreet’s Response to the Covid-19 Impact program which aimed to provide job seekers and employers support, resources, and inspiration amidst the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
