We ran a story yesterday about how job hunting has become so difficult for a lot of people around the world. It is particularly important to note that people are finding it hard to get jobs right now and a recession is looming as well. So we need a proper way in which people can find jobs and that should be easy as well. For that reason, we already have a lot of platforms trying to solve the problem and make job hunting easy for everyone but they are limited to some parts of the world.
Jobhopin raised funding for an automated job recruitment platform
Now, we have a new startup that aims to make the process of job hunting easier for people in the Southeast Asia region, and this startup is named JobHopin. This startup is based out of Vietnam and we know that JobHopin raised funding to built an automated platform for job recruitment which means that finding and applying for jobs will be much easier than before. JobHopin raised funding of $2.45 million in their Series A round.
As per the company’s claims, they currently have “a database of more than 1.4 million job candidates derived from online databases and 2,000 enterprise clients in Vietnam, and provides real-time market data analysis of salaries, talent supply (or the number of people qualified to fill certain roles) and hiring demand. Those features can be integrated into services like online education platforms, testing services, and third-party job portals”.
EduLab Capital Partners, the firm that has funded in this startup, released a statement which is as follows: “We are excited to now be part of the JobHopin story and lend our support. This is a company that is connecting the growing Vietnamese economy to a talented workforce while finding ways to help the jobseeker improve their profile and bridge the skills gap.”
