JobGetter was started because of a problem we had. We wanted to find work that worked for us. As job seekers ourselves, we know how frustrating it can be to look for a job, especially one that fits into other obligations, such as study or caring for family, or a job that’s the first, or next step, along your career path.
We thought that finding work that works should be much simpler than sitting on job sites for hours, sending off application after application into what is often a wasteland of silence. We wanted to make the whole process easier – and a lot less painful.
We wanted to make it easy for people to find work that was right for them – the right fit for their availability, skills, personality, preferred location and even favourite companies. Seriously, you can customize everything else these days – why not the thing most of us spend the majority of our lives doing?
As we set about building a job seeker-centric site that would help do that, we realised we could also help in so many other ways. You see, we see who gets the jobs and who doesn’t, so we figured that we had the information to help job seekers along the path. So, that’s what JobGetter does.
We have built world-class technology that enables people to find the right job for them and, by doing that, we help employers find the right people for their business – because we believe that no one should have to compromise. Traditionally, JobGetter started similar to the likes of other job sites – with an online classified site, but now we are so much more than just another job marketplace.
Today, JobGetter is an HR Technology company that’s shaking things up.
You see, we see ourselves as the job seekers advocate – whatever we can do to help you find what you’re looking for, is what we’ll do. We like shaking it up – disrupting the status quo and standing up to say that traditional reactive recruitment processes that just don’t work – for anyone.
For job seekers, we’ll show you what your options are through our career pages with info on industries – and the jobs in them – the skills you’ll need, the career paths available and even the pros and cons. We’ll tell you what it takes to get the job you’re looking for, and even how to best craft your CV and profile – and give you suggestions and guidance as to jobs you might like and the options available to you along your job or career journey.
And, when you apply for any job, you’ll hear back (because we believe that it’s just bad manners if you don’t!) We’ll give you personalised feedback on EVERY job application. EVERY time – something that everyone wants but no one else does – so that you can put your best foot forward next time.
And, if you’re displaced from an industry that’s changing, we can tell you how to migrate to another job with the skills you have – or specifically how you might up-skill to get back into the workforce as quickly as possible.
We’ll do anything we can to help you get into work – so simply tell us how we can help. We LOVE to hear from our job seekers – and we love to help – so always feel free to reach out with suggestions, opinions and questions.
We also want to be your voice – in the media, to Government, employers and the education sector so, if you have a message to send about what you need or want, let us know.
Welcome to the family! 🙂
