Job-hunting via trabaho.com
Manila Bulletin, September 4, 1997
With the Internet evolving into a versatile mass reach communications tool, cyberspace has become a melting pot for students doing research, companies advertising their product line, consumers looking for a good buy and, in recent years, even tyros and experts hunting for a job vacancy in their chosen fields.
Fresh graduates and seasoned professionals shopping around for their dream job might very well find it in http://www.trabaho.com, a one-year old web site which currently lists the job vacancies and contact information for top Filipino and multinational companies such as Motorola, Andersen Consulting, Intel and Globe Telecoms.
Since opening in August of last year, trabaho.com, which is owned and administered by Web Philippines, has helped numerous applicants and has published more than 18,000 job vacancies for over 300 companies.
"The objective of Trabaho.com is to be a cost effective medium which links the job seeker with corresponding job openings. The success of this idea can be attributed to the fact that more and more people are getting on the Internet. Also, with the low rates provided by ISP's (Internet Service Providers) right now, the Internet is already considered as one of the fastest and most affordable ways of information transfer," explains Ramon Canumay, Web Phils. president.
