Online job seekers obviously rely on job websites &ndash; job portals like ours as well as agencies &ndash; but perhaps surprisingly, they don&rsquo;t always rely on these directly. Facebook was a recurring response for surveyors, and this refers to job websites who post jobs on Facebook. Jobs are clicked and/or the Facebook post is shared among friends.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">So why has 50 percent of job searching in Yangon moved online? Fast and cheap internet is certainly a big part of it, but there are also more incentives. Online job searching is practically &ldquo;weightless&rdquo; &ndash; you would have to stuff the equivalent of thousands of jobs worth of offline material to compete with the job listing of a website. But it&rsquo;s not just about total number of jobs, it&rsquo;s also how you can filter through thousands of listings according to your preferences.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Online platforms have embedded search engines that allow you to easily filter thousands of jobs based on a number of preferences like location, salary and industry, among others.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Jort Statema, country manager of Work.com.mm, said, &ldquo;Online is the way to go. It&rsquo;s simply faster and more convenient. With the expected rise in internet penetration for Myanmar, we are ready to facilitate and help the Myanmar people in their search for a better career.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Statema said job websites are like a &quot;giant see-saw,&quot; where the emergence of more qualified job seekers compels more companies offering high quality jobs to jump aboard, and vice versa.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&quot;As such, job seekers are also moving online because more and more companies are posting jobs online,&quot; he said.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Going online also makes sense for companies. Jobs can be found and applied to by over 40,000 registered job seekers, and companies can more efficiently source talent with a standardised CV platform. Job seeker support staff is also very active in helping job seekers complete their CVs &ndash; companies can then evaluate talent based on more detailed dynamics.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">As momentous the shift online has been so far, many job seekers still have reservations, specifically with the online application process. &ldquo;Seeing is believing,&rdquo; when it comes to delivering your application in person &ndash; even though the internet is improving, there&rsquo;s a lasting concern about what losing connection means for online applications successfully reaching the company&rsquo;s inbox. Another reason job seekers are keeping with tradition is because in-person application is considered more respectful, displaying a more positive association with the particular job applicant who showed up personally to the company&rsquo;s HR department.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">To address these concerns, we&rsquo;ve developed two features that alert you when your application has been 1) received and 2) read. In terms of paying respect, we&rsquo;re not in the business of persuading a different belief, but we do believe that you can both show respect and convey yourself dynamically online. In fact, our CV is designed and optimised for the exact purpose of conveying yourself in full colour. Interests and activities, top skills, target job and an about me section complement the foundational work experience, education and language skills to create a fuller representation of job seekers in the form of a CV.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">A more complete CV means that job seekers can better match their own skills to detailed job post descriptions. Also, companies can better evaluate their CVs, which means a higher chance of getting recruited to the job you want.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">As a job website, we are also in the business of match-making: the ultimate goal is to have each side, the job seeker and their CV and the company and its job posting, represent themselves dynamically and transparently so that companies find the right employee and job seekers find the right job. It&rsquo;s about informing more job seekers and alleviating concerns to have more job seekers jump onboard, online, with us.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;"><em>Bennett Christian is the PR &amp; Business Partner at&nbsp;<a href="http://work.com.mm/" target="_blank" style="text-decoration: none; color: rgb(4, 50, 109);">Work.com.mm</a>.

font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Myanmar Payment Union (MPU), the national payment network founded by the Central Bank of Myanmar (CBM), and Japan Credit Bureau (JCB) International Co Ltd have signed a deal on issuing co-branded debit cards to Myanmar residents.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The scope of the memorandum of agreement, signed January 9, is for MPU member banks in Myanmar to issue MPU/JCB co-branded debit cards linking to their customer&rsquo;s saving accounts.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The initial timeframe of the deal anticipates the launch of the card within this year.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The cards will be accepted on the JCB international network which includes about 27 million JCB merchants in 190 countries and territories around the world.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Koremitsu Sannomiya, president and COO of JCBI, said, &ldquo;Myanmar&rsquo;s payment card market has high potential for the future as the nation has opened to the world and the economy and consumer affluence continue to grow.&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">MPU and JCBI have been developing their partnership since entering into the Master License Agreement for merchant acquiring in July 2013. Now JCB cards may be used at most MPU accepting locations through MPU&rsquo;s national payment network.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">JCB said this card issuing initiative would be a &ldquo;valuable addition&rdquo; to MPU and its member bank&rsquo;s domestic payment scheme portfolio. At the same time, the use of J/Smart, JCB&rsquo;s EMV-compliant chip program, will also help in implementing EMV acceptance in Myanmar, the Japanese payment giant said.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Mya Than, chairman of MPU, said, &ldquo;Currently, MPU has opened most of the 3,000 MPU accepting POS for JCB card members from outside of Myanmar. A card issuing partnership would provide our member banks the opportunity to expand their product portfolio and allow consumers to reach the global market and also the international E-commerce market with one single card.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">MPU was established under the guidance of CBM with 20 local banks as the national payment network in Myanmar to promote the acceptance and issuance of payment cards in the country.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">MPU cards, currently only for domestic payment use, will be accepted internationally by adding JCB payment service through this partnership.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-name-field-author field-type-text field-label-hidden view-mode-full" style="clear: both;

margin-top: 10px; font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Myanmar and Indonesia came out as the most favoured destinations for new factories over the next five years, followed by the Philippines and Vietnam, a new Baker &amp; McKenzie report revealed.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Re-drawing the ASEAN map,&rdquo; based on a survey conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit in late 2014 on behalf of Baker &amp; McKenzie, asked 171 business leaders at large global multinationals for their views on the formation of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and how it is impacting their strategy.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The report shows Myanmar and Indonesia stand out as the countries where manufacturing investment will grow quickest, with the number of factories in Myanmar to grow from currently zero to 27 by 2018 among companies surveyed.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">That number in Indonesia is expected to rise by nearly 70 percent over the next five years, while Vietnam and the Philippines are also poised to gain considerable manufacturing investment.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The Baker &amp; McKenzie report also reveals that companies are re-adjusting their manufacturing strategy, both consolidating their operations to take advantage of economies of scale as well as fragmenting their value chains to put different parts of the manufacturing process in places where local cost structures and skills are most appropriate.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">There remains concern that the ASEAN single market strategy, which allows free flow of goods and labour within the region, may hurt local small and medium businesses as they lack financing and advanced technology as opposed to their superior foreign counterparts.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">However, Chris Hughes, managing partner of Baker &amp; McKenzie in Yangon, doesn&rsquo;t think that&rsquo;s going to be the case. &ldquo;While it&rsquo;s no doubt true that some companies may find it harder to adapt to a more open and regionalised environment there will be opportunities for many more firms to access bigger and new markets, skills, knowhow and capital and flourish,&rdquo; he told&nbsp;<em>Myanmar Business Today</em>&nbsp;via email.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;The experience of increasing openness and economic engagement with overseas investors and trading partners over the last few years has already delivered many major benefits &ndash; I think the case for continuing this process is a good one,&rdquo; he added.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">As manufacturing investors rush into Myanmar with its recent opening up they also face major obstacles, the primary one being the complete lack of infrastructure such as road networks and electricity.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Hughes said a lot of attention is being already given to developing the infrastructure and the government has the support of many other nations and international bodies in this area and there&rsquo;s a significant role for the private sector to play too.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;While there is much to do, when you see things like the development of the telecommunications system over the last 12 months and projects like the Thilawa SEZ occurring you can see what is possible, and investors gain confidence from that.&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Another critical issue that investors face in Myanmar is its antiquated and dysfunctional legal system. Hughes said a clear and robust legal framework is &ldquo;fundamental&rdquo; to attracting and sustaining major investments.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;The common law system that has been in place here for many years does provide a basis for working but it&rsquo;s correct to say that development is needed. This is well understood by the lawmakers and real progress has been made with further important reforms under way, including in areas of real importance to investors such as banking and finance laws, IP laws, arbitration and company law.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Practices are changing quite quickly and our clients are finding ways to develop their businesses here but for many it is still a difficult and risky proposition. Continued reform will reduce these risks, build confidence and surely lead to increased investment for the good of the country as a whole,&rdquo; Hughes said.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;"><em><span style="font-weight: 700;">The ASEAN integration</span></em></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">A total of 97 percent of the surveyed companies believe the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community will be achieved. This contrasts with a 95 percent affirmation rate in a similar 2012 Baker &amp; McKenzie report &ldquo;Riding the ASEAN elephant: How business is responding to an unusual animal?&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">However, ASEAN has a tricky mix of developed, emerging and least developed economies and the countries do have to tackle the disparity to make a successful integration happen.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Eugene Lim, head of Baker &amp; McKenzie&rsquo;s Asia Pacific Trade and Commerce Practice, thinks the different levels of development actually bode well for ASEAN.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;It means that the countries have different competitive advantages and which in turn provides greater economic depth to ASEAN as a region,&rdquo; he told&nbsp;<em>Myanmar Business Today</em>&nbsp;via email.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;To illustrate, Cambodia and Myanmar may have cheaper labour costs and infrastructure that does not currently allow for manufacturing of high tech goods. However, they would still be able to engage in more labour intensive manufacturing activities compared to other more established manufacturing hubs like Thailand and Malaysia. Singapore may have much high costs structures but also more managerial expertise, which would make it a regional headquarter location.&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">Lim said the complex mix of different economies and different stages of economic development can, with careful and considered planning, allow for businesses to site various functions in locations which make best use of the local advantages.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">&ldquo;It allows cross-border businesses to organise and optimise their operations very efficiently to best tap the Asian markets,&rdquo; he said.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">The survey showed 88 percent of the surveyed companies indicate ASEAN integration is important to their strategic planning compared with 83 percent in 2012, and 76 percent have a strategy oriented around the ASEAN.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify;">ASEAN is home to nearly 10 percent of the world&rsquo;s population with more than 600 million people and currently ranks as the world&rsquo;s seventh largest economy.
