JobCrystal is an online career management service for all candidates searching for job opportunities and companies looking to hire candidates within South Africa. Candidates can upload their details to ensure that when a Company uploads a job specification, that should they match the criteria they will be notified and can choose to accept an interview. Other opportunities on the site exists for Companies to advertise and to purchase packages in order for JobCrystal to do checks on candidates.
Of course! You can change any of your preferences or details from your dashboard at any time. Do keep your details up to date, so that we can always give you information that's relevant to your career, and match you to the most appropriate positions.
Getting a job is just the start. JobCrystal is about managing your career on an ongoing basis, not merely finding a single job on one occasion. Even while you're happily employed, you’ll be regularly informed of your marketability, your potential career paths and any other positions that will help you to move closer to your dream job.
Nope. In fact, that's one of the best things about JobCrystal. We've never actually met anyone who enjoyed setting up their CV – it's a horrible, difficult, time-consuming process, and incredibly hard to get right, so we decided to just do away with it altogether. Instead we'll create a streamlined profile for you, based on all the information that you supply during registration (or make it easier and just give us your current document and we will automatically upload it so you don’t need to re-do anything or just send your linkedin profile) and later via your JobCrystal dashboard. This is the profile that potential employers will see – minus your personal and contact details, of course, until you give us permission to release those.
JobCrystal uses your Job Specification (or minimum requirements you upload) and finds the right candidate on our JobCrystal base (more than 250,000 candidates). Should none of our candidates match your requirements you can choose to advertise on our site for a minimal fee or choose to advertise on a range of selected other sites to look at a wider audience. Once you have found your employee we can assist in doing checks and balances to ensure they are completely suitable for you in our ‘Check Package’.
Should the employee placed through the JobCrystal website (and not through advertisements on the other websites) then JobCrystal offers a 2 month guarantee should the employee. If the employment relationship between the Employer and Employee (as placed by virtue of the JobCrystal Self-Service ) ends for a reason other than redundancy, retrenchment, unfair dismissal, unfair labour practice, death or out of Court settlement, within 2 (two) months of the Employee commencing duties with the Employer, JobCrystal will offer a Full Replacement, on the condition that the Employer has paid the invoice within the payment terms (please see Terms).
