Besides launching special apps for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices, the job portal has also introduced an HTML5 site.
To make its presence felt in the mobile space, job portal Naukri.com has introduced free job search apps on mobile for smart phones. This includes special apps for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices. The portal has also launched an exclusive HTML5 site as part of the offered mobility solutions.
On the development, Vibhore Sharma, executive vice-president, technology, Naukri.com, says, "Mobile devices are bringing about a revolution in the way people use internet and consume content from the web. Smartphones are the new basic phones that will eventually engage users more than a PC. With the launch of our apps and the repurposed website for mobile devices, we aim to offer our users the ability to continue their job search on the go and never miss out on a career opportunity."
The apps and the site come with features that allow job-seekers to filter job openings by location, keywords, functional area, experience bracket, and minimum expected salary. Users can create up to five custom job alerts on the basis of the defined search criterion.
The alerts will be directly sent to the users' inbox three times a week. Jobs will be recommended to the user as soon as he/she logs into the site on the basis of information provided during the profile creation process. Job applications will be secure and confidential. Users can also track the number of times a resume has been viewed by an employer, and the companies they have applied to earlier.
The company also considers this as yet another opportunity for employers who now have an additional platform from where to reach out to their target audience. With the mobile site, the company sees the response time for jobs posted being reduced, and thus help recruiters cater to a larger audience in less time.
