  JOBSTREET.COM HR NETWORKING EVENT HIGHLIGHTS SHIFT IN EMPLOYMENT MARKET

Thursday 22/07/2010

Kuala Lumpur, 22 July 2010: Over 380 Top Human Resource Practitioners At JobStreet.com’s 22nd HR Networking Event (HRNE) Today, Discussed About The Major Shift In The Employment Market.

Now with another ‘Talent War’ on the horizon after the recession, JobStreet.com has centered the HR Networking Event around this theme to further prepare top HR practitioners in facing it.

Eight prominent speakers, including Mr. Malek Ali, Founder & Managing Director, BFM Media Sdn Bhd, and Ms. Malini Vijaya Rajah, Sr. Manager, RBC Dexia Investor Services Sdn Bhd, spoke on various topics about retaining and hiring top talents.

Job trends have been growing exponentially since 2009 and increased dramatically in March where job numbers on JobStreet.com hit an all time high of 19,000 available positions.

“We are definitely seeing encouraging growth trends in 2010. In comparison to last year, we averaged around only 12,000 job positions during the recession. Jobs this year are up by almost 50%,” said Mark Chang, CEO, JobStreet.com.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive growth of jobs, JobStreet.com has also decided to announce the end of the JobStreet Retrenchment Helpline (RHL). The programme was a response to the job market downturn during the economic crisis last year.

“We are happy that the JobStreet RHL served its purpose in assisting many retrenched and unemployed jobseekers to find new careers as part of our CSR effort,” said Chook Yuh Yng, Country Manager, JobStreet.com.

JobStreet.com conducted over 100 free Resume & Career Clinics (RCC) where it was attended by more than 5,500 jobseekers nationwide.

Since the inception of the RHL, over 50% of retrenched JobStreet.com members have secured jobs during the past year through JobStreet.com (source: RHL survey, 2009)

The JobStreet.com HRNE will also be in Penang on 6 August 2010.
