Team Talk

The Jobs market in Fiji 30th September, 2018*. In this quarter, we at MyJobsFiji.com sent out a total of 385,300 email alerts for 1,495 jobs from 592 employers. Best of all we counted over 2,036 direct job applications from our site. A change was made so that candidates can apply directly to the employers. We continue to see more graduates joining our site with good qualifications along with demand for “clerical” / less skilled roles. We are mindful that we have to cater to all ends of the employment qualification spectrum. Unsurprisingly, the tourism sector remains the dominant employer along with jobs in Suva and Nadi corridors (we did have a tourism job on Viwa Island – and yes, pleasingly a candidate was found). The job the MJF team would like to work in is Entertainer and Singer on a Captain Cook Cruise ship which was one of the roles advertised. Some employers continued to hire for expansion such as Six Senses along with EFL and Carpenters. Kudos from us to Holiday Inn Suva whose HR department is going digital with applications in support of their business recent digital POS systems. We also noted a number of overseas firms are interested in hiring staff in skilled roles which whilst filled from our site we continue to see many go unfilled. Overall, we continue to see enthusiasm and optimism in the economy with employers looking for innovative ways to source candidates from an increasingly digitally savvy Fijian population. * These results and analysis are based on our own insights and analytics. Newsflash : We just sent out our 6,000th application and now send out 5,000 email alerts daily. We are pleased to be satisfying our mission and look forward to more of you joining it.  
So you are looking for staff and have had a "hard time" finding "good staff ". We hear those words over and over from CEOs, managers and HR professionals. And, we see them post vacancies/ job opportunities over and over in traditional media. One company reposted a larger advert in the newspaper when a smaller one brought no job applications.  So "what's wrong with that " you ask...?  Ummm, actually nothing is wrong unless you have loads of cash to burn listing jobs on places where candidates no longer "hang out" and having your clients constantly bugging you. Nearly 60% of job seekers look for jobs online via job boards or social media sites. The message is clear if you are looking for talent - "post jobs where the candidates are".  Here's what digital media offers over traditional media... 1. Wider reach - anyone with a smartphone can view job vacancies posted online. 2. Faster response - allowing candidates to apply instantly and for you to receive them. No response means a "re-do" the advertisement. 3. Cost-effective - digital media has a lower cost per person reach.  4. Receive applications online in digital format - get applications delivered to your laptop/phone ready to filter in the one spot  5. Modify listings anytime - post adverts anytime (online adverts can be modified anytime for a better response). 6. No deadlines - no 3 pm deadline means you can post when it suits you - any time, any day.   7. Meet the demographic that is Fiji - 69% of Fijians are under 40...what do you think they actually read daily? Don't fall into the insanity loop of "doing the same thing and expecting different results". Job seekers are increasingly looking at different ways of looking for vacancies.  Networking and digital media are replacing the traditional flipping through the papers. People are time poor and busy - but everyone has a smartphone and are "connected"! 
Summary Here is the presentation from our  launch event last week.  We share observations from what we have learnt from being digital in Fiji. Most of all we share our aspirations for all Human Resources staff to collaborating and perhaps even creating a digital culture that not only benefits Fiji but creates a future Google or Amazon.  We hope that the event allowed the opportunity for ongoing dialogue and networking and look forward to collaborating online and face to face at the next event soon. Launch Event We had our successful launch event at the Tanoa Plaza in Suva. We had a number of organisations attend and it was wonderful to share thoughts ideas and issues in a friendly atmosphere with HR and business professionals. What was readily evident  is that the Human Resource staff are determined to contribute to their organisations and the profession of Human Resources in Fiji. The challenges faced are varied from retention to turnover and what was also interesting were some of the innovative ways these have been tackled. We probably met the hardest working group of HR people that we have known. We from MyjobsFiji shared some of our observations from a "big data" point of view and shared what ultimately is our ambition for Fiji. We think the 4th Industrial Revolution is a real opportunity that is validated by the Infosys Report. Importantly HR is in prime position to influence this. At a micro level we focused on for instance the quality of candidates applying, the attention to detail the writing style etc..and how this needs a lot of work.   Many of these observations  were validated by the practitioners attending. We would have thought after receiving over 2500 applications that some candidates would have been found through the platform. It was heartening to hear that a number of candidates had been sourced from MyjobsFiji. Let's get Fiji connected!                  
So what makes you more valuable than the others.....in your organisation ? Here are three simple things... 1. Trust  Specifically building trust. Trust comes from two things - integrity and being capable of doing your job. Honesty is a highly valued trait and is often is part of what defines your integrity. Speak your mind appropriately when asked and if you are unsure be honest. It is perfectly "Ok" to not know all the answers or to put your hand up and admit/own your weaknesses. Trust also flows from your capabilities. You were hired for your role because the organisation that hired you had the faith in your technical and interpersonal skills.  2. Go the extra mile... Think outside the square and do not turn a blind eye to things as they are not in your position description. Managers/owners treasure people who are creative and are problem solvers. Don't throw your hands up in the air and declare "too hard". Find a way forward by brainstorming, discussing and researching the issues. If there is a tap leaking water...."tighten the tap properly" or wash the dishes in the sink. It is not in anyone's  job description to tighten leaky taps! Small things get noticed...go with the saying "be the standard that you walk past".  3. Enthusiasm Be excited to be rolling out of bed to go to work!  When an issue or problem is given to you -  show that you have a 'can do attitude".  Be positive at work and when asked "how are you feeling?" Do not spend the next 30 minutes doing a download of the million issues you are facing in your life. That may be the last time someone asks you that question and everyone will probably avoid you in the lunch room. (Of course seek help if you genuinely have problems....but not everyone at work will be ready to hear your issues and are your friends). If it is too painful thinking about work.....you are not in the right job.There are two options available:  a.change the environment at work so that it is a fun environment and, b. if you can't change that environment - go somewhere else where you will be happy!  Radical right! Well we have discussed with a lot of people over the years and have also experienced this first hand. Gandhi is credited with saying "Be the change you want to see in the world"...start being that change!
Through the jobs placed on our job platform www.myjobsfiji.com , we are able to analyse not only the number of visits, applications and alerts by candidates we are also able to carefully analyse the database of advertisements. This article is about occupations that are seemingly hard to fill in Fiji yet despite this, some organisations are still successful in hiring these hard to fill roles. We have been promising to write about our observations of "good" advertisements - and we promise we will do so in a later post. Meanwhile, let's focus on the hardest vacancies to fill.  Hardest Vacancies to Fill in Fiji? Here is the list based on our analysis: 1. Drivers - yes drivers!. Whether they are Class 2 or Class 6+  passenger levels we find that these vacancies tend to be advertised for longer and go unapplied for. 2. Chefs - Commis /Demi/ Sous - any title  - we find they do not seem to get filled readily.  3. Food & Beverage Specialists - we say specialists in that role that are not waiting and serving staff but those that are required to mix drinks, manage the function etc. The list we should say is compiled on the basis of a combination of;  length of time advertised, number of times (re) advertised, the volume of applications received if any, ignoring the geographical location and noting the frequency of roles advertised. In a future post in addition to writing about good advertisements we have seen we can talk about the "easy to source" roles. So, how does your organisation compare?  Your thoughts and views are always welcome. Get in touch info@myjobsfiji.com
We launched the   www.myjobsfiji.com   job board exactly two months ago without fanfare. We are sharing our experiences based on the advertisements we have seen so far. If you are an employer, professional in Human Resources, and/or simply interested in improving your recruitment process this may be of interest to you. Our top five observations All job vacancies listed on our job board were viewed by at least one or more prospective candidates (100% viewership).  84% of all vacancies listed had one or more application sent to the employer (84% response rate).  The average number of views for each vacancy listing was 21 (on average 21 candidates viewed each advertisement - remember we only started recently and growing daily and all you need is the right candidate to see it!). 15% of the companies had no response to their advert  - this is lower than traditional media though  (more on that later in future posts as to why - a lot of it is due to the advertisement itself). Faster recruitment cycle. The fastest application by a candidate was 3 minutes after a job was listed, and the fastest hire by an employer was 1 working day..see below.   In reality, these are from YOUR experiences we are merely reporting these.  We have been humbled to hear about us making a difference for employers and in turn candidates who are fellow Fijians. A story to share Here's a win-win that we would like to share. A job listing was placed on the  www.myjobsfiji.com  site on a Saturday.  The vacancy was viewed by a candidate and they applied for the role on next day (Sunday). The candidate was shortlisted and interviewed and offered the role on Monday! That's the shortest time frame we are aware of in a full recruitment cycle. Okay, not a big deal we hear you say. And, you could well be right however as we said in a previous article, we are fans of Einstein's definition of insanity - "doing the same thing and expecting different results".  We think we are onto something more than a hunch when an average of over 25 applications are sent daily from our job board - from a standing start. And besides, isn't it a cost to the business to carry a vacancy for a long time? A recent survey found In our recent survey we gained interesting insights into candidate behaviour. 58% of the people relied solely on digital/internet when seeking job opportunities. So put another way, if you are advertising job vacancies through traditional media eg. newspapers, then the chances are that it is only reaching 42% of the potential candidates. Which leads us to the big question incorporating Einstein's definition of 'insanity' : If digital is the future for business everywhere else - why not in Fiji...?
