The Challenge

Insufficient and Irrelevant Applications on Traditional Platforms

As a sizeable startup with international branches in Asia, FunNow also faced difficulties in recruitment. Despite the low volume of applicants received on a few traditional job platforms, the quality-related issues included:

  • Commonly without the required knowledge or relevant experience
  • Random backgrounds applying for specific jobs
  • Asking for unreasonable salary

Luckily, their staff in Taiwan suggested the branch in Hong Kong to use Wantedly...

Problems are then easily solved, voila!

service company launched in 2015.
They offer last-minute online bookings
for hotels, spas, restaurants,
beauty salons, outdoor events
and more. So, just have fun now!
