"We want JobTech to do the heavy lifting for job seekers out there," said JobTech co-founder Charlotte Lim. "Simply upload your resume and our technology will reveal the day's top five job openings that best match your skills. No need to put in keywords, it's all automatic."
Ms Lim added: "Our leading advantage is being able to offer more job matches than any other technology out there. This allows us to provide opportunities that job seekers do not realize they qualify for, and show them exactly how their skills match the jobs."
JobTech unveiled this capability with a "Superhero" campaign aimed to coincide with this year's National Day theme of harnessing the country's "diversity and leaving no one behind." "In the same way, My Dream Job helps to uncover and harness the diverse 'Superhero' skills of job seekers, giving them broader job matches to make sure no one misses out on any opportunity while searching for their dream jobs online," said Ms Lim.
Ernest Tan, 40-year-old, who has been looking for a job in Precision Engineering for the past 3 months said, "As a job seeker, I was getting frustrated not knowing why my resume was not getting me an interview. I need to get past all the noise and to the true situation." The new feature will allow JobTech users like Ernest to easily identify best matched jobs and how their skills match the jobs.
Instead of traditional keyword matching, the technology uses semantic fingerprinting, which results in smarter and more accurate job matches. People looking for jobs do not need to enter keywords such as "Leadership Skills" as the Artificial Intelligence (AI) will automatically pick out a phrase like "led a team of 50" to show leadership skills.
