This case study describes how, in 2012, myStarJob.com entered the Malaysian online classified jobs market. However, although there were one million jobseekers a month, the top four players had already signed up most of them. The generic but still effective claim of 'bigger is better' (more job listings, members etc) was not one that was available to myStarJob.com, given its significantly smaller user base.
