Australia technology startup Jinitech Group launches “U-Connect” Job Seeker Platform aiming to help University students seeking jobs post COVID-19. The platform is not-for-profit, no cost would be charged to either job seekers or employers. Job seekers can register and upload profiles through the U-Connect platform and employers can post vacancies onto the platform and review applications.
CEO & Co-founder of Jinitech Group Jinnie Yip said, “The Australian unemployment rate shot up to 7.1% and hit a 19-year high during recent COVID-19 pandemic. Creating a social platform for University students, including job searching, is one of Jinitech’s goals. Making use of our database technology to contribute to the community is our starting point. Our ultimate goal is to utilize AI and Blockchain technology to build a smart and decentralized social platform for University students. Job interviews could be done via cloud based live-streaming technology in the future.”
Further, Jinitech Group is planning to launch a partnership program to facilitate meaningful employment for graduates. The initiative showed a high level of interest among community and corporate partners for being part of building a better future for graduates and employers, which is the essential part for the economy.
“We are eager to seek opportunities to partner with Universities and Government to further expand our network and database for University students and graduates,” said Yip.
International students and graduates are a vital economic asset to the community, with direct economic benefits from tuition fees and living expenses. By placing an ideal job after graduation, they can continue to make significant contributions to the Australian economy.
