New mobile tool to connect students and bosses 3,000 jobs at career fair; 51 firms taking part for the first time Energy firms make big entry Business student Ivan Koh one of many with a job months before final exams
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has found another way to connect its graduating students to companies looking to fill vacancies. It is introducing JobPASS, NTU’s new job app for smartphones, which allows students to find the perfect company to start building their career – even before they graduate. The job mobile app is the first of its kind for a Singapore university.
Available for both Apple and Android smart phones, JobPASS enables NTU students to view the latest job opportunities, apply for jobs conveniently and get instant notifications on their job application status, career events and latest updates from participating employers.
JobPASS allows the user to set personal preferences, such as the type of industry, for more accurate job matching. When the user sees a job he likes, he can simply apply for it right away on his mobile phone, anywhere, anytime. The user will also be notified directly through the app when he has been shortlisted or accepted by the company. JobPASS is also a boon for participating employers as they can now reach out to students directly via the mobile app.
The new JobPASS app marks another big step for NTU, as the University continues to leverage new technologies to better connect employers to the Generation Y, which uses technology to connect with the world around them in more diverse ways and in greater numbers than any other age group.
Professor Freddy Boey, NTU’s Provost said, “Over the last few years, NTU has been utilising technology to better connect employers to the Internet- and technology-savvy Generation Y students. NTU JobPASS will complement NTU’s existing Talent Site, giving our students an added edge as they search for their dream job. I trust the employers will fully utilise this innovative way of engaging our students via their mobile devices, making outreach and recruitment more engaging and efficient.”
The JobPASS was unveiled today by Professor Boey at the launch of the University’s Career Fair 2013. The new app is directly linked and complements NTU’s existing online recruitment platforms. In 2010, NTU introduced its Talent Site that enables graduating students to submit their resumes online, including short introductory video-clips of themselves directly to employers. NTU followed up a year later with the iFair, a virtual career fair that is fully interactive, offering online live chats with participating employers at selected times.
