jobpilot AG, Europe's career market on the internet, announces the opening of five new sites in the Asia/Pacific area to serve the key markets of Australia (www.australia.jobpilot.com), Hong Kong (www.hongkong.jobpilot.com), Korea (www.korea.jobpilot.com), India (www.india.jobpilot.com) and the Middle East (www.mideast.jobpilot.com).
With the opening of these five sites, jobpilot takes a firm grip on the Asian continent. Already considered a major player in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand the company is now in a position to offer global recruitment solutions beyond in Europe and Asia. All Asian sites are operated technically and cost efficiently by the Asian head-office in Thailand where jobpilot currently has 25 employees including a team of 10 designers and software developers.
This expansion in Asia takes into account the needs expressed by current key customers in Europe, whose recruitment models have evolved dramatically over the past few years. The international outsourcing of qualified staff as well as the transfer of skills on a global scale have recently become major issues for large organisations.
"Most blue-chips are confronted with an increasing shortage of skilled manpower, especially in sensitive areas such as IT or Consulting. The creation of a bridge between Europe and Asia is part of the solution that we can offer to our clients to solve these recruitment problems", underlines Dr Roland Metzger, founder and CEO of jobpilot.
