It’s not fighting One Africa Media’s Jobberman, Slotjobs.com has launched to change Nigeria’s job ad market for good. The online platform is focused on micro-jobs and aims to help Nigeria’s youth find work at a time when unemployment rate is at 29.5%.
The casual jobs website is a product of Abuja’s Stardom Quest Global Services Nigeria Limited founded by Joseph Okechukwu Nwudu.
“The issue of unemployment in Nigeria is alarming, and so many students and young graduates are unemployed. Many are waiting for a big opportunity with the blue chip companies and organizations, which is having a negative effect on not only our economy but our society as well,” comments the Nwudu. “I wanted to create a company and online job market platform that would provide opportunities for work now, thus Slotjobs.com was born.”
He says he realized that the micro jobs market was unexplored in Nigeria, which lead to a huge vacuum that needed to be filled, so Slotjobs.com was developed as a way to help young people find quick casual work to earn an income. The site is free and easy to use for Nigerian job seekers and business owners, matching employers with employees.
The site is free to sign up for both individuals, companies and businesses, has a resume builder for job seekers, has a professional profile builder for firms and a verified accounts for easy hiring as well as a talent forum.
Job seekers can find jobs online from individuals who have small job opportunities plus, businesses and companies who are looking to hire casual workers and skilled professionals can also advertise on the website by directly accessing the database pool of skilled artisans freely on the website.
It is set to offer young graduates an easy opportunity to find micro jobs and earn an income while searching for desired long term jobs or careers.
“The slotjobs.com project is under intense development and is achieving serious attention. It will offer Nigerians a wealth of resources to help them find, keep and explore career opportunities outside white collar employment.” Joseph concludes.
