Goodbye JobsDB Philippines

I was surprised to find this email in my inbox.

I had a flashback of when I was still a fresh graduate way back 2000 (or was it 2001?). I have used this job search engine to look for jobs within Metro Manila. They were able to pair me up with job searches that is related to my field or based on what I have ticked on their checklist.

I have also used jobsDB when my husband announced that he wants to go back to the Philippines. I searched and see if there are any job opportunities that will suit my profile. I also read their articles about how to get the job and their job seeking tips. It also gave me a chance to see what the companies are looking for. 

It was not just a one-sided search because I also used other job search engines like Jobstreet and Inquirer's as well. 

Reading more about the notice, I commend them that they point their jobseekers to the other job search engine, Jobstreet. I like that kind of attitude. It seems there was no bitterness (but of course, this is just me reading the notice I received). 

JobsDB will be closing the site on June 30, 2016. I guess it was a good fight. 

Though it makes me think, what has changed with the hunting process done by job seekers and what do companies use now to get their ad out there?
