The HR ministry is tweaking their job hunting and matching software and adding the final touches their website to ready themselves for coming online on 12th this month. Its one of the many pledges the current government has made to the people to do something about the job crisis and at last somethings seems to be moving in the right direction. But the big questions is “will it work?”
Making a database and having the people enter their names and info on to a database is one thing and having the employers actually make use of the database is quite another. The employers being employers would need a good reason to log on to a government created database to find talent which is abundant wherever they seek. HR departments in most resorts recieve innumerable (that’s an exaggeration … forgive me) unsolicited cv’s and job applications from all corners of the globe (this too is not true.. cos earth is not a cube…) and the government would have a hard sell if it were to convince the HR directors to choose from fellow countrymen in the midst of an economic crisis and a dollar shortage (too distinct issues actually in Maldives). Anyways we commend their effort and hope the project bears fruit.
For our part we have added one more page in our blog to list all the employers we come across with links to their websites where jobs are listed. If you know any good links pls comment and we will add promptly..
