Let’s be real: In this day and age, working just for the money can be very draining physically and mentally (and sometimes, even emotionally). Job seekers now pick employers that can give the best salary and quality of life. The salary can easily be checked prior to contract signing; however, snooping around for feedback regarding the almost non-existent work-life-balance can be challenging. Good thing that such factors are now considered in this new employment app that we discovered from APPScape.
To help combat unemployment, APPscape recently introduced LapitJobs – an employment app that is completely free to download for applicants nationwide. This is their team’s way to help Filipinos get back on their feet again and adjust to the needs of a “new normal” lifestyle after the economic decline that took a hard toll on over 27.3 million people in the country. LapitJobs takes advantage of technology and social media for applicants to get ahead from the competition.
HOW TO USE IT
Job seekers only need to download the app and register for an account. Once it’s activated, device location must be enabled in order to find jobs near the user. Users can choose the acceptable distance of potential employers from their home and what Job Type they prefer. Users also have the option to check a certain location for a job position they’d like to apply for.
After seeing the lists of jobs, it’s worth noting that the LapitJobs app can check both Net Pay and Quality of Life Factor Score for every app user:
- The Net Pay indicates how much of the estimated salary will be brought home after deductions from benefits as well as the time that need to be allotted for transportation.
- The Quality of Life Factor Score will let users know their estimated Job Satisfaction by taking into consideration the distance and salary if applicants were to proceed with the job position.
LAPITTAUHAN FOR EMPLOYERS
Meanwhile, LapitTauhan makes it easier for employers to be found by other job applicants. Employers can post an offer along with their location in the portal. LapitTauhan has a dashboard that can help employers in shortlisting, scheduling, and conducting interviews – preferably online, with applicants by informing them of the status of their application.
The best part? It’s free to register for now! There’s also a learning resource page called Tambayan – a platform feature for leaders to share their success stories or mentor those seeking advice online, which works like a forum.
LapitJobs is now available for download via Google Play and App Store, but you can also check out their website at lapitjobs.com/.
