News.com.au article Posted June 08, 2018 08:11:07 A 16-year-old Melbourne boy has created an app for his friends to find jobs.
The app, called “Job Seekers, Inc”, lets users find work at their local coffee shop and work out how much they will be paid and how much the local council would pay them.
Mr Bannister said he created the app for friends to share their experiences in search of a job.
“I thought it was funny that some people were looking for work and the only way to do that is by looking for a job, so I thought it would be really useful to the community and to people in Melbourne,” he said.
“It’s just really interesting, because if you’re in a place where you can’t find work, and you’re just looking for some extra cash, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it.”
Mr Bantillier said the app would help job seekers find out how many job vacancies there were in their area and to ask them to share any relevant details about their location.
He said the information would help the app find jobs for local people who might not be able to find work locally.
The teen said he was inspired to create the app after seeing some people applying for jobs online and seeing that there were jobs available.
“You get these emails, and they’re looking for you,” he explained.
“But the first thing you’re going to find out is how much you’re making, how much time you’re spending in there, how many hours you’re getting paid, and how many of those hours are unpaid.”
The app is now available for free for Mac users and Windows users.
A new app, Job Seekers Inc, aims to help jobseekers find jobs by sharing information about local businesses.
Job Seeker Inc will be available in the next two weeks for $1.99.
