Amid a Surge in Traffic, PDT Job Site has 36,000 Hits and Climbing

Since October 2008 the Peace Dividend Trust has been trying to improve the systems whereby employers link with prospective employees in Timor-Leste. To this end it created a jobs posting site, named Serbisu Iha Timor-Leste (Jobs in Timor-Leste), in which jobs are posted for nationals in Timor-Leste.

While the posting service got off to a slow start it has lifted off since January 2009, and in just five months users have visited the site on 7,763 occasions, viewing over 36,811 pages. (See graphic). To date dozens of private and public sector organizations have advertised hundreds of positions on this site.

Peace Dividend Trust is funded by AusAID and Norway.
