A new local company, JobsTT has launched online bringing a new approach to the world of online recruitment as the premier destination for Trinidad and Tobago’s Employers and Jobseekers seeking a better Return on Investment (ROI) and Career opportunities.

Much more than just a job board, JobsTT.com offers recruiters a more powerful filtering using screening questionnaires, a greater reach to jobseekers through social media, a more flexible pricing structure that allows anyone to advertise online and offering job seekers career advice and support.

The results reported so far have been phenomenal; more than 1,000 new registered users every week, tens of thousands of unique visitors to the website and Facebook page, all contributing to a very successful launch. The growth rate since launching has exceeded expectations, with an excellent response from both Jobseekers and employers with many making note of the superior experience due to the use of innovative technology and friendly user interface.

A better ROI is also being reported by Employers, helped by the heavy use of targeted Social media to reach out to more relevant users. And now more than 50 local employers, SME and large conglomerates trust JobsTT.

JobsTT.com starts working for employers as soon as a job opening is posted. Thousands of jobseekers automatically receive a message alerting them of a new career opportunity. Jobseeker applications are received in real time and the job posting is always visible to all users.

Thousands of registered users visit JobsTT.com every day in addition to thousands of followers via Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+.

    This is something I’ve thought of a lot. I read the article and let it simmer, trying to put it into a more Trini context… and I think I failed in that regard, mainly because it’s clear to me that the media houses in Trinidad (specific) don’t really understand the Internet.

    This is not to say that there aren’t pockets of people who do understand the ebb and flow, it’s to say that they don’t appear to be in control of the engines or rudder.

    First and foremost – and I apologize to my friends who are good writers and/or journalists – the writing generally lacks cohesion. People claiming to know more than me explain that away as editors trying to use space effectively, or I’ve even been told that they are targeting a certain level of education. The former is not forgivable, the latter a poor reflection on poor reflection. I’m sure someone can come up with a better excuse for articles containing unrelated articles, or unimaginative rewrites of old topics, or… oh, I could go on.

    Then, there’s the issue of photographs being used without even permission – something that rears it’s ugly head now and then, demonstrating an uninformed perspective on the Internet, or one willfully ignorant.

    But what we’re really talking about is a simple business problem. I made a faint stab at doing blog based stuff with KnowTNT.com some years ago, and that’s exactly what it was: A stab. It was by no means a business; it was a hobby that was interesting for a while and taught me much.

    The key to this, though, is the audience. Not the present audience. It’s about changing the audience. And changing the audience, in my book, would be to have more of an international reach – which, in turn, would mean more things of international interest than Carnival and Jazz festivals. There are inklings of that in the more traveled media (planes), and that is a hint of the media landscape that really has a chance to be lucrative.

    That’s my thought right now, subject to change… a layperson who reads voraciously, but counts calories when he does. A layperson who knows we have talented people to create media, and to build the backbone of it – having judged contests at UWI, and made friends with some of the aspiring tech people as they grow into their potential… Global Voices started down a path, but it had it’s own bias which left out some things…

    But how to do it? I believe that there is a hint in there for a few people. Maybe it’s something I’ll look at again someday.

    For now, Google News gets me what I want, unless I want a daily count of dead people, which constable is investigating what, and what freshman political drama is happening.
