How RightJobs Helps Employers Give Their Listings Top Billing
There are times when companies need to get the word out for a high-value and urgent vacancy that has opened up in their organzations. Advertising for a position in traditional media outlets can be deemed slow and ends up wasting the company’s time and money. RightJobs has two-tiers for companies who want to highlight their jobs top and center – Featured and Platinum.

Job listings also geature social media integration with Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter for maximum virality and visibility. Featured job listings can avail keywords matching, data filter, unlimited registered by applicants and will be responded to timely as well. The Featured tier is valid for 5 days for job listings.
For companies that want to outsource the interview and human resource component of the hiring process to able professionals, RightJobs.pk can step in to take care of this gap. The Platinum model also gives companies a month’s worth of being featured on the main page. This tier also includes Phone interviews as well as access to dedicated recruitment professionals that can result in a 70% successful interview turn-up ratio.

In addition to the Featured and Platinum tiers, there are some jobs where nothing can be left to chance. For this the company offers headhunting services that works towards finding the best and guaranteed resource for your company.
Given these features, RightJobs Pk goes certain steps ahead of the competition when it comes to online job portals in Pakistan.
How RightJobs Cuts Down on the Shortlisting Process
The online jobs portal relies on two-pronged approach to shortlisting candidates that match the skills for a job listing. For the 1st phase, the company helps to narrow down suggested candidates by considering a candidate’s personal network, moving on to a pro-active search, and finally streamlining the right person via the database search. This can help weed out candidates that don’t possess the prerequisite skillsets that the employer requires. For the next phase, the employer calls up the shortlisted candidate via a telephone interview.
Be it young graduates or industry veterans, the young and vibrant team at RightJobs,pk has, in a span of 2 years, attracted 12,000 registered employers (companies) and 2.5 million professionals using it for securing that right job. Online job postings are updated on a daily basis up to the tune of 10,000 listings (both old and new alike).
RightJobs currently has 3 regional offices in Pakistan in Islamabad, Faisalabad and Lahore.
