Bong Pheak Gives Hope to Young Low-Skilled Job Seeker

usaid-ctip-case-study-3-photo-copyJanuary 2017, Phnom Penh – Lihorn Naw is from Kampong Cham province in Cambodia and is 24-years old. She has never migrated before but started to consider migrating because she had been searching unsuccessfully for a job for such a long time within Cambodia. After applying to more than 50 jobs through different popular human resource websites in Cambodia she was not shortlisted for even a single interview. Lihorn became extremely frustrated because of the difficult process that she had to go through every time she applied for a new position.

After finding out through Facebook about Bong Pheak, an innovative employment platform for low and unskilled job seekers in Cambodia, Lihorn said she decided to try searching for a job using it as, “it seemed easy to apply”.

Thanks to the Bong Pheak service, Lihorn secured a position as a Seller and Cashier at Hagar Catering & Facilities Management. The Human Resources Manager of Hagar Catering & Facilities Management reported that the Bong Pheak platform has been a great tool for his business, noting that after only two weeks being registered he had received over 30 applications. Bong Pheak aims to offer information on safe local employment opportunities for low and unskilled job seekers in Cambodia as an alternative to risky migration. To learn more about Bong Pheak, please visit its website and Facebook page.
