How do your Jobstreet application looks like to employers

This post is not affiliated with Jobstreet in any way. 

Have you ever feel curious about how your Jobstreet application looks like on the back-end of the employer's screen? I will give you an insight into how your job application looks like on the other side. 

If you are a Jobstreet user, you probably have receive multiple emails from LiNa frequently. LiNa is not a person who works in Jobstreet. It is a candidate module created by Jobstreet. While the job applicants system is called LiNa, the employer’s system is called SiVa. Technically, Jobstreet is a software/system company, and not a recruitment company. They developed these systems to connect employers and job seekers. So you can’t call Jobstreet to look for you a job. It doesn’t work that way. You need to know this, because it is up to you how to attract the attention of the employers. Jobstreet is only providing you the platform to submit your application.
