JobStreet Thailand bids farewell after 4 years of operations

By

Where will job seekers go, now that JobStreet Thailand has ceased all operations?

JobStreet,com Thailand, the Thai subsidiary of Malaysia’s online jobs portal, announced last night that “from midnight February 28, 2014, it will cease its operations with immediate effect”.

Users of JobStreet Thailand will still be able to log in and apply for existing jobs for the next two months. However, they are advised to “export any important data” before the site goes down permanently.

The news come shortly after Australian online counterpart SEEK was reported to be looking at buying JobStreet Corporation Berhad for US$523.5 million.

    I am thinking of the direction for these job portal? Is it dying after the impact of social recruitment and social networking site for professionals?
