JobStreet by SEEK, the leading talent recruitment and job-seeking platform in the Philippines, launches its newest innovation: seekMAX.
seekMAX is an in-app learning content platform, dedicated to helping professionals further hone their skills and advance in their careers. The launch of this new app was held at BGC Immersive “Wisdom of Da Vinci” at One Bonifacio High Street.
Through seekMAX, Filipino candidates can explore over a thousand free bite-sized video content that can be accessed anytime, anywhere via the JobStreet mobile app. Creating an account is not required, but logging in is highly recommended for a more personalized experience that allows you to seamlessly continue watching content from where you left off.
In collaboration with leading companies, local industry experts, and media like Bloomberg, Microsoft, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Complexly, Tech in Asia, SDG Academy, Open Academy, and Deutsche Welle, among others, jobseekers are given access to high quality and engaging videos that feature industry-specific topics, soft skills, leadership tips, and various career-related advice. Candidates can also get first dibs on salary negotiation tips from seekMAX’s original series Salary Squad.
“Candidates need to continue upskilling not only for professional growth, but also for honing their soft skills which is what most industries look out for nowadays more than the candidate’s proficiency in their technical skills. Through seekMAX, they can learn new things, master their expertise, and be connected with industry experts as well as a supportive professional community,” shares Dannah Majarocon, JobStreet Philippines’ Managing Director.
With the ever-changing world of work, employees are expected to continuously learn new skills to adapt. According to the recent Decoding the Digital Talent Challenge report by JobStreet, 75% of Filipinos who are willing to retrain professionally prefer self-studying, while 65% use digital learning platforms. Not only does seekMAX offer helpful career-related content, but it also makes upskilling and reskilling more accessible and attainable.
Initially launched in Indonesia in 2022, seekMAX successfully reached over 2.5 million users who have consumed 6.5 million minutes of content on the platform. The most popular among the content categories are job search advice, career advice, salary advice, and self-development. As for the most-watched series by far, seekMAX’s original Salary Squad remains on the list.
“As we continue making strides in our commitment to innovation, we are pushing forward to being more than a job-seeking and recruitment platform. We also want to help talents become more well-rounded because, at JobStreet, we strongly advocate for training and continuous learning. This guarantees our partner hirers a high-quality pool of candidates that can potentially become a part of their organization,” said Peter Bithos, SEEK Asia’s Chief Executive Officer.
With this latest innovation, talents can rely on JobStreet’s talent market expertise to continuously provide exclusive and valuable career resources for ever-growing professionals like them.
As a constant career and recruitment partner, JobStreet continues to empower and equip talents no matter their level of expertise. With seekMAX, they can also find like-minded individuals with whom they can engage in career-related discussions, share the latest industry trends, and connect with industry professionals.
After the launch, JobStreet treated their guests to a sumptuous lunch at Lore restaurant where we got to talk to our foreign visitors and guests from Singapore.
