Falling in on a long line and long hours of wait is not just a waste of time but a waste of money. Jobseekers are supposed to gain money from working. The problem is, job seekers are getting drained, not only physically, but also financially.

Worry not, because JobStream App is here for you. “JobStream was created and designed to overcome these challenges,” Maridel told ASEAN.org. “Candidates can now upload their diplomas, NBI, certificates. Jobseekers can strategically find jobs closer to home to reduce commuting hours so that we can spend more time with other activities, spend more time with family and friends, and can achieve work-life balance,” Maridel added.

Maridel explained what does JobStream do saying, “JobStream is a mobile-centric that even HR practitioners can shortlist a candidate, send and interview request, browse candidate, even hire on the app.”

“JobStream’s goal is to create a space where opportunities are endless. We believe that everybody deserves a chance and JOBSTREAM wants to help to find their way regardless of age, ethnicity, status or educations background. That JobStream can be a tool in assisting them in their journey whether through employment or volunteer opportunity that set them up to be successful individuals and make their meaningful contribution to a team of like-minded co-workers,” she said.

The app is really convenient for both employers and jobseekers as JobStream has a feature that lets jobseekers showcase their talents and communication skills through uploading their video resume.

“JobStream is also designed for people who are looking for volunteer opportunities and want to get involve to communities. We want to welcome Non-Government / Non-profit organizations who need an extra hand to help more people,” Maridel stated.

JobStream is committed to keep innovating and use technologies that are available in the market and incorporate it on hiring talents, to make the process efficient, quick and easy.

“Through the growth of this movement, JobStream’s goal is to empower each Filipinos from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and have an impactful and positive influence on businesses and our communities,” Maridel added.

Of course, all businesses have their ups and downs. Fortunately, ASEANHR.org has the opportunity to ask Maridel her challenges before launching JobStream.

According to Maridel, the vision of JobStream started in Calgary, Canada on December 2016. Unfortunately, the business partnership ended in the 3rd quarter of 2017. She said that this is her very first big challenge as an entrepreneur.

“The second and third huge challenge was during the development process of the first version of the app. There was a lot of bugs & error, user interface was poorly designed, and a lot of the functionality was not working properly,” Maridel said.

She then planned to move all the development process in the Philippines and grow it from there. She had to start from scratch. In October 2018, Maridel did a soft launch and joined SME Business Conference in SMX Convention center to validate the idea.

“During that time, we only have a website to offer so I talked to people and share the vision and everybody can relate on hours of commute and traffic daily,” she said. And that time, they successfully had 600 jobseekers who signed-up and 50 companies. That is also the time where they pushed on the development of Android and iOS.
