Slotjobs.com debuts online to help Nigerian job seekers find work through micro job market platform

With Nigeria's unemployment rate at 29.5%, a fast growing company has launched a website outlet to help young people find quick, casual jobs to continue earning an income while they wait for their big opportunities. As the youth population continues to climb in Nigeria, so does the unemployment rate.

In fact, unemployed youth numbered about 11.1 million in 2012, as noted in a 2012 report conducted by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

 
It’s the younger youth that struggle even more to find jobs, as at least two-thirds of unemployed Nigerians are between 18 and 28 years of age.


“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 Owner and Founder, Joseph Okechukwu Nwudu. “I wanted to create a company and online job market platform that would provide opportunities for work now, thus Slotjobs.com was born.”

Joseph felt that the micro jobs market was unexplored in Nigeria, which lead to a huge vacuum that needed to be filled, so he developed Slotjobs.com as a way to help young people find quick casual jobs to continue earning an income while they wait for their big opportunity. The site is free and easy to use for Nigerian job seekers and business owners.

The sites added features include:

l  Free account creation: Individuals, companies and businesses can sign up and make an account for free, and from there they can post and edit unlimited jobs, apply for unlimited jobs and communicate freely without any restriction.

l  Resume builder: Nigerian job seekers can build and modify their resume on the website, sharing their resume link with employers and applying for jobs with a single click.

l  Professional Profile Builder: Job seekers can list their micro job strengths and create detailed profiles of them to be seen by employers who are looking for new employees.

l  Hiring with confidence: Employers can search through and hire verified professionals backed by Slotjobs.com reducing time and resources of potentially hiring unskilled professionals that would be handling jobs they are not qualified for.

l  Talent Forum: Through Slotjobs.com’s “help slot”, users can find quality job solutions through user recommendations. Employers can pose and ask a question and hire the skilled professionals with the best answer – all from the Talent Hunt section of the website.

Now thanks to the micro jobs website, job seekers can find jobs online from individuals who havemicro 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 on the website freely.

Even in its infant stage, Slotjobs.com has already seen a positive response by users and is set to offer young graduates an easy opportunity to find micro jobs and earn an income while they search for their job in their desired career field long term.

“The slotjobs.com project is under intense development and will offer Nigerians a wealth of resources to help them find, keep and explore career opportunities outside white collar employment.” Joseph concludes.
