Reliance Mobile today announced that it will be offering Job services on its VAS platform R-World. The Job search service is powered by with Babajob.com, a company that specializes in informal labour hiring, to launch this service on a pan-India basis.
Reliance Mobile’s job service is for job seekers who are not computer literate as well as not qualified for jobs that get advertised on well-known job portals.
The compnay claims Reliance Mobile’s job service offers Employers an easy access to reachable candidates and allows them to reach job seekers who often lack web access and hence better job opportunities. Additionally, it offers rural users information about jobs in their districts as well as often higher paying jobs in nearby cities.
Mr Krishna Durbha, Head VAS, Reliance Communications quoted, “This is is a scalable, replicable solution which will connect computer/voice-based employers to job-seekers with mobile phones. We see major usage of this service in Tier 3 and rural locations. This service will enable informal job seekers to find lucrative employment opportunities at a click of a single button. We are currently launching this job search service in 5 languages – Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil & English. We plan to go live with additional languages within the next one month.”
Sean Blagsvedt, CEO of Babajob.com adds, “We are extremely excited to partner with Reliance Mobile to bring their customers access to our growing database of informal sector jobs and candidates. Our vision is create an efficient marketplace for employers to connect with blue-collar labor and help the vast middle and lower classes of India connect with better job opportunities; this partnership with Reliance represents a giant step towards making that vision a reality for the over 80 million Reliance Mobile customers in India.”
