Job seekers will be able to easily check various job openings posted on WorkNet by searching on Google or calling the 114 information service (02-114).
The Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL) and the Korea Employment Information Service (KEIS) have entered into service partnerships with Google LLC and KT innovative solution (KT is) in June.
MOEL and KEIS signed an MOU with Google LLC on June 25th. As a result, from July, confirmed job postings on WorkNet will be found on Google for Jobs (Google’s job search function) on the request of companies looking for employees.
Currently, WorkNet provides information on job opportunities identified by MOEL or the 35 private and public job portals with which MOEL has signed MOUs. Every day, WorkNet offers an average of 80,000 job postings confirmed by MOEL’s Job Centers and local governments.
Any company posting a vacancy on WorkNet may have the job posting included in the search results of Google for Jobs. In this case, the following information will appear in the search results: the company name, job position, place of work, posting date, application deadline, qualification requirements (career experience and educational background) and working conditions (pay and employment type).
On June 27th, MOEL and KEIS will also conclude an MOU with KT is, which has been operating the 114 information service (02-114). The MOU is intended to help people who lack digital skills, such as older people. People can soon call 114 for job vacancy information.
In accordance with the MOU, MOEL and KEIS will utilize KT is’ information service network to provide job information posted on WorkNet through both online and offline channels. If a jobseeker calls 114 and asks for job information, KT is’ job counseling division will send the requested information posted on WorkNet to the jobseeker through text messages.
“The purpose of these MOUs is to give people easy access to various job postings on WorkNet and support people who are unfamiliar with the Internet and have had little access to digital information,” Mr. Na Young-don, Deputy Minister of the Employment Policy Office, said. “We will spare no effort to achieve government innovation based on data services and ensure that WorkNet fulfills its social responsibility as a public job portal.”
