Xpressjobs is a startup that was launched in November 2015, to fill a vacuum between jobseekers and employers. Pioneered by Chathum Henegama and Dr. Oshadie Korale (B.Sc) (PhD), the website is meant to provide a relevant platform for job seekers to connect with companies that require staff in a quick and effective manner.
The online portal has now gone the extra mile by launching Video Job Ads – which is available to all recruiters who can post an employment opportunity and also follow this advertisement with a two to three minute video clip, addressing jobseekers with exact details regarding the position offered, company details and also a very clear recruitment call-out so interested job-seekers can understand what is required of them.
Xpressjobs has been an innovator in the recruitment industry and this new step leverages visual media technology in order to serve both professionals, job seekers and recruiters alike.
There are several Video Job Ads already on the portal and you can look these up at www.xpressjobs
“These Video Job Ads will help attract right candidates for the job. Your job advert video will be available to be viewed by over 30,000 registered candidates and over 70,000 jobseeker on our social media groups,” said Dr. Korale.
She went on to say, “XpressJobs did a pilot launch and the results were awesome. Jobseekers love these as there is no room for misunderstanding and it is much easier for people to listen and comprehend what is required of them. There is also that immediate feedback to react and act – by applying for the jobs – so we are getting a higher number of responses as well.” Xpressjobs has enjoyed unprecedented popularity, as in the last 12 months alone they have collected an impressive lineup of over 1,200 companies offering employment, including top companies such as MAS Holdings, the Colombo Stock Exchange, John Keells Holdings and HSBC, etc.
