About Us

Since our debut on 24 March 2006, STJobs (previously ST701 Jobs) has been an engaging, trusted and relevant online portal to both job seekers and employers.

Under the ST701 umbrella, the online pedigree and hybrid of CATS Classified for Jobs, Cars, Property and Products & Services, STJobs carries the initials of The Straits Times at the forefront, while dropping the ‘701’ to reveal a catchier name.

The Ideal Job is out there for everyone at STJobs

Job seekers have access to more than 50, 000 employers in our portal. This adds up to a rough estimate of over 30, 000 jobs at any one time, spanning industries from finance to oil and gas and covering a spectrum of full-time, part-time and temp positions.

At STJobs, we pride ourselves in offering a balance of quality and quantity in our job positions while delivering the ultimate online user experience.

Users have the benefit of our job matching technology which matches suitable jobs based on credentials, qualifications and work experience – or what we term as the STJobs profile completeness.

There is also the Resume Scan where the intuitive CV parsing system dispatches particulars into templated fields, cutting down on the time it takes to key in personal information. Or how about the useful resources where you can read all about industry trends, interview tips, workplace success and the latest in hiring policies?

There is an ideal job out there for everyone and STJobs is here to help job seekers take the first step towards finding it and paving the way to a successful career.
