This app harnesses social networks to connect job seekers, companies


Aside from tapping their social network for recommendations on what food to try, which series to watch, or which music genre to explore, Filipinos also use their network to seek job opportunities or for reliable workers. In fact, approaching a close contact is the method of job searching most used by the unemployed based on a survey by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in 2019.

Aside from making the search easier for the job seeker, some of the benefits to utilizing referrals include boosting the chances of being seriously considered and a higher probability to be interviewed for the position. Once employed, referral hires are also shown to be more productive and have greater job satisfaction.

With all the benefits of referral hiring, it would be a no-brainer for companies to implement an employee referral program to help fill job vacancies. However, setting up a referral program could also spell more work for the company if it doesn’t already have an existing system in place.

It’s a match

PasaJob provides that solution. As a long-chain referral-based job platform, it allows companies, job seekers, and employees to participate in a system that rewards successful referrers while matching employers to quality candidates.

Unlike traditional job boards where the only allowed action is to apply, PasaJob enables users to also refer contacts that will be suitable for the role, and they’ll be given a payout if their referral is successfully hired.

By signing up with PasaJob, companies can skip the hassle of creating their own referral program by using the app to encourage referral hiring. By doing so, they immediately reap the multiple benefits from referred hires along with the pros that come from the platform. These include:

  • setting a preferred referral fee
  • tracking the referral chains of employees
  • automating the process from job posting to payout

“We want to bring jobs closer to Filipinos through their networks. There will always be jobs to fill and professionals who are looking for opportunities. This platform enables us to bridge the gap through connectors whom we reward through referral fees, an additional income source that requires no investment,” said Kristen Mariano, founder and CEO of PasaJob.

In future versions of PasaJob, there will be side contests and weekly challenges to keep users engaged and rewarded with prizes.

Companies and organizations interested in utilizing PasaJob’s job referral platform may contact for inquiries. Meanwhile, job seekers and potential referrers can download the app from Google Play and the App Store.
