One of Jobee's selling points is that employers needn't pay anything if they fail to hire through the site.

How a new jobs site is going the extra mile

This could be the kind of dream recruitment site that small businesses want, and which job hunters would love to use.

First of all, there is no charge for posting an ad if the company fails to hire anyone through the website — terms that will gladden the hearts of cost-conscious small business owners.

Then, there is also no limit to the size of an ad, and no time duration limit either.

Newspapers and online recruitment platforms usually put a limit on the number of words of an ad. Because of such constraint, employers cannot tell potential applicants more about the company to help them make the right decision, Satoru Harada, founder of Jobee told SMB World.

The issue is also a headache for job seekers.

“Job seekers may spend a lot of time screening for the right job, only to find out it’s not the kind of workplace they are after”, prompting them to quit early, Harada said.

The younger generation is not only interested in the money, they may prefer to work in a place that has a chic style.

They also care more about the company culture and whether it’s easy to get along with colleagues.

Understanding their concerns, Jobee is designed to facilitate communication between the two parties.

The site accommodates photos and videos and allows employers to post their openings on the platform with no length restriction on the job descriptions.

To make it as convenient as possible for users, companies can upload recruitment details through the mobile phone and job seekers can also search and apply for suitable positions on the go.

As a newcomer, Jobee is offering bonuses to successful job hunters and 50 percent discount for employers to attract more users.

It would be interesting to see how incumbent players respond to Jobee’s innovative approach.
