studentjobs-africa.com is Africa's largest fast-growing job platform founded and designed by Eunice Pohlmann to enable employers advertise their internship as well as graduate and temporary job openings in Africa for FREE. We are dedicated to making job search for university students, graduates and young professionals across Africa easy and affordable.
Eunice required a new product focused website to help connect students and fresh graduates from Africa to potential employers and to become a market leader online with the overall goal of becoming a ‘trusted advisor’ within the human resource sector.
With over 10,000 listings and a potential for a much larger scale, one of the core objectives of the platform was the need for a very clever search system. User’s needed to be able to search on a variety of jobs, resume and profile meta. The system needed to show results as you type, provide similar matching results and most importantly return results fast.
The search engine implemented returns results for 5,000 products in under 30ms on average!
In just 3 months the new platform saw a massive 260% increase in average sign ups, 220% increase in the number of jobs and 350 new student accounts requested to be opened.
The new platform has positioned Kenya and Africa at the digital forefront of the human resource industry and it’s clear both employers and students are already appreciating the benefits of an easy to use job search system.
