In 2020, the Gen Z population made up at least around 40% of the global workforce, with more of them joining each day.
However, unlike generations before them, Gen Zs are typically more picky when searching for a job, as they favour workplace flexibility, good work-life balance, and personal development opportunities.
Not only that, but Gen Zs and millennials are often nano-creators, individuals who create content for a small audience, as can be seen with their active presence on and usage of social media.
Being able to show off their portfolio could mean the difference between landing a job and remaining unemployed, especially since employers now place more focus on experience over academic results.
Job searching platforms have adapted to this demand, with sites like Job Majestic offering the necessary tools to help Gen Z creators find jobs efficiently and more reliably. Here are some of its useful features for job seekers.
Spend less time filling up forms
Filling up an online form with your work experience can be quite a tedious process. Alas, it’s necessary since you would want to provide as much crucial information as possible so employers can make easier and faster decisions.
Job Majestic has a feature that automatically fills in all the required information in around 10 seconds or less by scanning through your resume, which streamlines the entire onboarding process.
By streamlining the onboarding process, job seekers can go from registering an account to applying for jobs quickly.
If you are a fresh graduate and don’t have a resume ready, you can fill in all the necessary details and have a resume generated for you.
On top of that, it’s also possible to upload a video resume to show off your skills in order to stand out from the crowd. It is especially useful if you’re applying for a job that requires video editing and visual effects experience.
Easily link your portfolio of content across various sites
Content creators usually manage multiple social media platforms, which is why Job Majestic features a section where you can upload your portfolio and include links to all your social media platforms that you manage.
This helps strengthen the job seeker’s profile, increasing their chance of getting hired as it provides businesses with an idea of how your content is like, and how you manage your social media platforms.
Here’s a list of platforms Job Majestic currently support:
Narrow down your options more efficiently with detailed filters
Choosing a job is a two-way street, it’s not only about what you can offer to the employer, but also what they can offer in return.
Besides the salary range, there are other things that typically inform a job seeker’s decision too, like whether medical claims, transportation claims, and yearly performance bonuses are provided.
With hundreds or even thousands of jobs to choose from, individually clicking into each job listing is not only time-consuming, but it could lead to job seekers feeling overwhelmed.
To prevent this, the platform comes with a job filtering system that lets you find jobs with specific benefits in mind.
For example, by choosing “Next to LRT” and “Petrol Allowance”, Job Majestic will only show jobs that contain these benefits which helps you narrow down your search.
Improve your resume with the help of trusted peers
Much like creating a dating profile, building a job profile on an online platform is essential so that potential employers are able to find out more about you.
New job seekers might not be aware of the do’s and don’ts when creating an effective profile, such as avoiding walls of texts, checking for spelling inaccuracies, and cutting out unnecessary personal information.
Having your profile vetted by friends and family members is a sure-fire way to spot these mistakes before they affect your chances of landing a job.
Disclaimer: The “profile review” feature will only be available from next year onwards.
Take the guesswork out of when to expect a response
On job searching sites, businesses that do not respond in a timely manner can be quite discouraging for job seekers, and the companies may even end up missing out on skilled talent.
Job Majestic aims to alleviate that issue using their “Super Responsive” feature, which provides job applicants real-time data of how quickly a business typically responds.
Businesses that are active and fast to respond will be consolidated into a list for job seekers that are urgently looking for a job vacancy.
This should encourage companies to respond to applicants more quickly, and it also gives job applicants an idea of when to expect a response from the job they are applying for.
Disclaimer: The “Super Responsive” feature will only be available from August 2022 onwards.
Job search in the language you’re comfortable with
Therefore, creators can pick a language that they’re more comfortable using to navigate the website efficiently, and the same goes for the companies too.
By catering to different market segments as well, Job Majestic should ideally have a larger, more diverse pool of employers and job seekers for both parties to benefit from.
