Job seekers on the popular job seeking site BrighterMonday can now get their application history complete with regrets or accepted requests thanks to the automatic feedback feature by the company to make job seeking more transparent.
“In our new platform currently going through final tests, employers are now able to communicate the recruitment stage to an applicant. For example, when a CV is viewed, candidates are informed electronically and when they are shortlisted or rejected, an automatic email is sent informing them of the change in status,” general manager for East Africa Robert Kimani
The Business Daily reports that in the second half of last year, the site recorded 45,000 jobs from both large and small employers.
According to Kimani,potential employers prefer web applicants because of it saves time when looking for qualified candidates.
The job listing portal is under the One Africa Media group that recently got a capital injection of Kshs 1.8 billion ($20 million) from Australia-based recruitment portal Seek.
The latter is also on an expansion drive in the continent.
