Blogging community was tapped recently by Philippine Daily Inquirer to witness the launching of jobmarketonline.com and pinoybestdeals.com.

The move has made a new milestone for PDI family, currently the first local newspaper to establish its online presence in the ad/job placement/job-seeking/recruitment industry. Mr. Jesse Francis Rebustillo (Head of the Classified Ads Section of PDI) further explains the bold step to connect with the target audience on the online and social media channels. Since job-hunting these days are considered in tune with the digital age. Gone are the days when a job seeker painstakingly reads classified ads randomly and carefully cuts a box ad (with scissor) a potential employer and later on send resumes by dropping off personally at the employer’s head office. Buy new clothes to appeal with the business-look requirement and with a 15% percentage of getting hired. Today, job seekers learn to strategize to make their lives efficient by seeking jobs online and sending document digitally. The emergence of internet has captured average people, anyone with a PC, laptop, tablet and even mobile phones can access the world-wide-web’s possibilities. With Job Market Online: register for free, create/upload resumes, search for jobs according to categories and apply. For the recruitment group, 5 job posts credits for 30 days FREE; resume banks are guaranteed clean and free from old and inaccurate database. Find out more about the offer by contacting JM directly.

The idea of Job Market Online is highly amenable specifically to individuals and job advertisers living in provincial areas. Job prospects can be better viewed if only these people utilize the proper use of these technology tools – computer and internet. The value of time, money and energy for job hunters will be minimized. The companies seeking for targeted employees with geographic preferences can be possibly done. Some local towns nationwide are still not consummate with the advent of internet technology. We call for the attention of the job seekers and ad placement agencies to make a better use of (opportunities) what is available in your area and land that job you dreamed of or post available jobs needed on geo-target locations, if there’s internet connection and available computer units or laptops, USE IT! Or better yet, share the good news to your neighbor or “kababayan” (fellow countrymen).

For job seekers, job market online is now integrated with mobile services via SMS. Receive job alerts on your mobile phone by texting “JOIN JM <CATEGORY>” and SEND to 4467. The service is charged PhP1 per message. Job Market is published every Sunday with the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Another portal to watch out by the consumers is the online retail shop powered by Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Pinoy Best Deals. There are numbers of websites offering the same niche – a market place for group buying and discounted products/services. But what makes pinoybestdeals.com different among the rest, it’s a secure place to close a deal with  and make successful transaction amidst the scam sellers and bogus buyers.

The online selling portal offers small-scale entrepreneur a venue to display their goods/services while online shoppers have a variety of categories to browse for the shop queries. Seller and buyer can communicate privately thru sending message to one another; the transaction is made by the two parties. Also it allows a customer feedback section applicable to all the sellers in Pinoy Best Deals. The online marketplace accepts banner ads for those interested to display company logo to reach potential customers with minimal charges.

Whether news headlines, lifestyle, entertainment, business news, classified ads, consumer deals  and even obituaries, Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) sees to it they deliver the message using the right tools and diverse technology available. The newmaker group has established an active participation on all channels via print media, radio, television, websites and now with the social media.

This meet up is a testament of the growing influence of social media and inquirer is right to work with bloggers in promoting their products and offerings.

It’s a great idea to have an online version of the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Job Market. People who are looking for employment opportunities no longer have to spend a lot of time with the newspapers or go from company to company in search of a job. =D

This is really the way of the future and I really expect the Inquirer, being the industry leader, to spearhead this effort!
