In Indonesia, although online look out is getting more popular, newspaper is still the most favorite method, especially for the middle-low segment. This fact brings down one more topic to the discussion, which is from the employer point of view. Our client idea is to combine a job matching algorithm with feature phone message delivery.
The app will allow job seeker to register him/herself through SMS (short message) or USSD. The registered database will be processed, scored, and matched up with job vacancy from companies. The result will be sent back out to the seeker also through SMS. As the technical team, WGS' main chore is to develop a system that is able to communicate with SMS gateway and ensure accurate match up between job seeker and employer.
We use PHP with MySQL, and came up with features listed below:
The scoring algorithm calculates job requirements (i.e. age, location, job type, salary, abilities, experience, etc.) with the job seeker profile. It also considers vacancy status, number of employees required, and vacancy expiration date. Once scoring is finished, employer have options to review the candidates or automatically call them to a scheduled interview. Tapping the feature phone market is very lucrative.
Once registrant number reached a critical mass, the client can easily monetize the information gathered or ask for volume sharing from the cell phone operator. It's also highly possible to upgrade the market segment since WGS has already prepared the email and web infrastructure.
