The innovative Tech solutions provider, eFutureTech Systems Ltd., shined with two gold awards at the SLT Zero One Awards 2018 organised by Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) to recognise institutions, individuals and brands for achievements by leveraging digital technologies. Jobpal.lk, one of eFutureTech Systems’ flagship products, bagged two gold awards, namely ‘Best Website or Micro Site’ in the ‘Professional Services’ category and ‘Best Website or Micro Site’ in the ‘Information Services’ category.
Launched in June 2017, Jobpal.lk provides a web and a mobile portal where those who seek jobs (candidates) and those who seek personnel (employers) could connect with each other easily. Job advertisements are displayed free of charge for employers, and in addition to those who directly respond to such advertisements; the Jobpal.lk staff also intervenes to find suitable candidates for those vacancies.
Anyone can register with Jobpal.lk free of charge and browse and apply for job vacancies. As a featured service, information regarding suitable job vacancies can be obtained via USSD and SMS by registering with Jobpal’s premium service for a fee of Rs. 3 a day (plus tax).
There are no additional or hidden charges in an event of obtaining a job. “Just as much, unemployment troubles the jobless; easy way to find a suitable person for a vacancy is a problem to employers. And the effectiveness of the solution we presented to address this problem is evident in the awards we received. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the staff at eFutureTech Systems Ltd. and both candidates and employers who helped to bring Jobpal.lk to its current state within a period of just over a year.” Said Jobpal.lk Head and Founder Anjana Ratnayake.
