Tee-Saurus, God bless their creative souls, have been working so hard to come up with cool and genuinely funny products for people to buy. One particular product, in particular, has captured the Singaporean heart. If you look at this work, you’ll know why.
Some one from STJobs.sg’s marketing department must have caught on to this, and decided to copy the crap out of this work without seeking permission. I mean, look at the similarity between the originals above and the copies below:
STJobs.sg basically didn’t have the decency to even ask Tee-Saurus about this. But let’s take a look the core business of STJobs:
- Platform for jobseekers to find jobs
- Employers pay to place jobs on the platform
- STJobs runs career fairs & provides access to career courses, etc
Here’s the problem though: Everything on that list is a copy too.
- STJobs.sg is copy of sites like this, this and this
- Their business model is largely unchanged from competitors
- There are better career fairs.
Now that we’ve established a (shitty) pattern of copying from everyone to achieve crap results, I’d just like to say that they should absolutely give up on this job portal game.
I mean, let’s just look at their website. If you scroll down, you’ll see “Featured Direct Employers”. Guess what? ZILCH. ZERO. NADA. Don’t believe me? Here’s a screenshot.
Go to their competitors, and you’ll see a whole bunch of Direct Employers featured on their sites.
So what’s STJobs really good for?
- Nope. Still nothing.
I hope that STJobs remembers that Firms like Tee-Saurus create original work to survive. For them, it’s more than just a cheap marketing gimmick. This is how they make money to keep employees paid and dreams alive. STJobs needs to sell no such thing to survive. Maybe if STJobs stops ripping off everyone’s ideas, they might just come up with some original ones of their own…. Nah. Who am I kidding?
They’re a bunch of unoriginal copy cats who can’t come up with their own content and have no respect for ideas at the end of the day.
