Finding a new job has never been an easy task. Usually, people would have to walk from one office to another, submitting copies of their resume and hoping to get called for an interview. Thanks to the internet, we now have job websites that serve both the job seeker and the hiring organisations. People can directly apply for vacancies listed on these sites, upload their resumes and fill in contact details.
Some of such platforms go as far as testing and maintaining a pool of qualified job seekers, making it easier for recruiters to find good talent. They also offer CV services – helping job seekers draft a comprehensive resume.
Check out some online job boards below:
Jobberman is Nigeria’s foremost indigenous online career portal. Recruiters always turn to Jobberman when they need to make new hires, making it a good place for job seekers to pitch their tent. After signing up on Jobberman, you can go through the job listing, or search by keyword or by location to narrow down the listings. If you find a job you are interested in, you’ll be prompted to fill in your contact details and upload your resume. Jobberman then takes care of all the correspondence with the recruiter and would get back to you with interview schedule. In case that job doesn’t work out, Jobberman will also recommend other jobs and sometimes prebook you for interviews.
