In order to find a right job opportunity for candidates and at the same time finding the right candidate for employers, JobStreet artificial intelligence is sending job alerts to millions of candidates every day who match with specific skill sets, working experience and education background that employers are looking for on their job ads.As JobStreet is an online job market place, it opens access to job opportunities even for people in small cities that have not been exposed to jobs opening in their own cities or other cities due to conventional way of looking for jobs through newspaper, friends or referrals, and letters are not scalable. They often miss job openings that could land them in a suitable position.

In order to find job opportunities, candidates simply register on the platform and then fill out the information that is needed by employers such as education background, working experience, and skillsets. Candidates may then search job opportunities on the site by searching using keywords or advanced search using filters such as location, specialization, and even their expected salary. Candidates may also get regular job alert to their email if they do not want to miss any new job opportunity available. Using advanced artificial intelligence, job alert system finds jobs that match with criteria that candidates are looking for.
As talent partner for employers, JobStreet does not only provide a space for employers to list their job ads, but an employer can also search candidates profile that they are looking for on JobStreet's database (only for candidates that are willing to open their profiles to be searched by employers). Like a search engine, using a feature called Talent Search, an HR professional or hiring manager could easily find the right candidates using keywords and advance filter such as position title, years of working experience, location, industry, specialization, even expected salary.
JobStreet is also partnering with local universities to run seminars to provide students with knowledge on what and how to prepare for their career journey, giving them career tips, trends, and insights, how to improve their personal growth to get a better career. JobStreet and local universities also run career fairs for students to apply for jobs and see what their potential employers are offering as well as the culture and values of the company. JobStreet also partners with the ministry of manpower to run seminars and career fairs in small cities and towns to help government decrease unemployment in Indonesia.
JobStreet also runs a number of CSR activities to support education, a cleaner environment, and donation. In order to improve the literacy of Indonesian children, JobStreet is collecting books from employees to be donated to children foundations. To encourage employees to read and improve their personal growth, JobStreet also provides a smart corner or small library in the office where employees can donate their books and other employees could borrow the books for small fees that will be donated again to children's foundations.
To do its part for a better and cleaner environment, JobStreet is running an internal campaign of less trash in the office. Learning from Japan that you can significantly reduce the number of trash bins in public places like cities but still manage to become one of the cleanest countries, JobStreet also removes all trash bins in employees area and only put one big trash bin in the pantry. This leads to employees throwing away less trash and significantly reducing the trash daily volume. Management also keeps reminding and encouraging employees to use a tumbler, and to reduce plastic and Styrofoam use.
On the social part, an employee committee will collect donations from employees every Monday that will be donated to children with cancer. The committee will visit and spend time with the children every month when delivering the donations.
Currently, JobStreet is taking on a big project called laws of attraction where the company will run the biggest candidate survey in Indonesia with over 6 thousand respondents to find out key drivers attraction for candidates to apply for a job and stay in a company. The project is expected to give in-depth and actionable insights for employers to attract talents to their company and retain their employees. The result of the survey is expected to change employers policy for examples giving a better career and development for employees, better work and life balance, and improve salary and compensation. Eventually, this change of policy is expected to give employees a better career and improve their lives.
Looking at high unemployment in Indonesia, especially access to jobs in small and remote cities and towns, the leaders aim to cover more parts of Indonesia to increase job opportunities. They also focus on bringing only quality jobs and filter out/eliminate jobs that are suspicious scams/frauds, or disadvantage for candidates, e.g. do not offer fixed salary, commission only.
Millions of candidates are hired through JobStreet and many candidates are helped to get a better career as JobStreet is there for them from the beginning of their life and career stage as fresh graduates until they are in the top management, they have a family and getting back to corporate lives.
Not only candidates but also employers from SME to multinational companies are able to fill in positions with talents that they are looking for to grow their business. JobStreet is also there for employers from the beginning of their journey as small companies until they grow bigger with more complex recruitment needs.
The mission of the company to give a job for every Indonesian and improving lives through a better career is always ingrained in the company's initiatives, action, and journey. The company is not only improving people lives but at the same time also improving their culture and values shared among the leaders and employees in the company.
