ICON’s Dig­i­tal So­lu­tion for Job­splus is a Fi­nal­ist at the MCA eBusi­ness Awards

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

ICON’s in­no­va­tive dig­i­tal so­lu­tion for Job­splus has been short­listed as a fi­nal­ist for the ‘Best eGovern­ment Ini­tia­tive’ in the 2016 MCA eBusi­ness Awards. Apart from pro­vid­ing job seek­ers with matched va­can­cies and em­ploy­ers with matched CV pro­files, it gives the op­por­tu­nity to stake­hold­ers to view and an­a­lyse the most com­mon gaps be­tween pro­files and en­ter­prise de­mands.

The por­tal de­vel­oped by ICON is part of a fully-re­spon­sive web­site which can be used seam­lessly on desk­tops, tablets and smart­phones alike. With a deep un­der­stand­ing of the re­cruit­ment sec­tor, and a highly-qual­i­fied team, ICON, a Mi­crosoft and Google Part­ner was able to of­fer a cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion, de­signed to be ap­proach­able and ap­peal to a younger au­di­ence, in line with the brand changes in­tro­duced by the tran­si­tion from the ETC to Job­splus.

Com­ment­ing on the pro­ject, Mr. Josef Cachia, Fi­nance and ICT Depart­ment Man­ager of Job­splus, stated:

“Job­splus is ex­tremely pleased with ICON’s in­volve­ment in this pro­ject and very sat­is­fied with the in­no­va­tive so­lu­tion it re­sulted in. The por­tal is a truly for­mi­da­ble tool which - apart from the var­i­ous on­line ser­vices avail­able to our clients - of­fers an on­line plat­form where job seek­ers and em­ploy­ers can match and com­mu­ni­cate with each other. It will help make our or­gan­i­sa­tion more ef­fi­cient in our day-to-day ac­tiv­i­ties, which in turn will cause Malta’s em­ploy­ment ser­vices to be much more ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient.”

The por­tal of­fers job seek­ers the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a per­son­alised dig­i­tal pro­file, al­low­ing them to search and match while en­abling em­ploy­ers to view their pro­file when it matches with one of their va­can­cies. The process for cre­at­ing a CV from scratch is usu­ally a lengthy, ar­du­ous process and ICON solved this chal­lenge by de­vel­op­ing a smart CV Builder, which en­ables users to find their em­ploy­ment his­tory and pop­u­late the job seeker’s CV au­to­mat­i­cally. A job seeker can fur­ther pop­u­late his or her CV with the rel­e­vant aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions, pre­ferred job types, skills and com­pe­ten­cies he or she is com­pe­tent in along with li­censes they may hold. The por­tal can also high­light which cri­te­ria is miss­ing in the job seeker’s pro­file with re­spect to the va­cancy de­mands, the num­ber of va­can­cies match­ing the job seeker’s pro­file, and the num­ber of pro­files match­ing a spe­cific va­cancy.

This dig­i­tal so­lu­tion is sup­port­ing Malta to re­duce its unem­ploy­ment rate which fur­ther en­hances the econ­omy and the at­trac­tive­ness of our coun­try from an in­vest­ment per­spec­tive.
