Thousands of Nigerians flock to the internet on a daily basis in search of jobs. Despite the explosion of apps, websites and other tools for job applicants seeking to optimise their hunt for employment in Nigeria, many are still unable to use the technology available to its fullest potential.
There are however some startups that are making real strides in combating this dilemma. If you have your CV ready and are looking for the best free job portals, then look no further as Jovago.com, shares the details on the top 3 start-ups revolutionising job search in Nigeria.
Jobberman is one of the simplest and most far-reaching job search engines for employment seekers in Nigeria. It was co-founded in 2009 by Opeyemi Awoyemi, Ayodeji Adewunmi and Olalekan Olude and claims to be the “Nigeria’s No. 1 Jobs Website.”
The site creates a marketplace where job seekers and employers can find one another quickly and cost-effectively. It sources jobs directly from companies and recruiting agencies and broadcasts them through their website, blog, email, partner websites and social networks.
Applicants search and apply for jobs by either visiting the website directly, or through partner portals.
Njorku Nigeria works like Google; however, it focuses on helping people search and find job pages in Nigeria. The portal searches for employment opportunities around the country and aggregates the results available in one place to make things simple.
So, instead of visiting different job sites, you can merely log in to Njorku.com, outline your search criteria and be offered jobs that are available in your region. It makes job search not only easy and free, but also less time consuming.
A relatively new startup that goes beyond just being a job hunt portal. PushCV is an online enterprise solution service and web-based platform that provides only the best – pre-screened and fully tested- candidates for top employers and recruitment agencies. It allows individuals submit CVs, which are then forwarded to employers based on skill set matching employers’ preferences.
