Amritsar, NFAPost: Google has launched its employment application Kormo Jobs in India. This new app is set to allow job seekers find and apply for positions across the nation.
India is the third country where Kormo Jobs has been launched so far. The app was first launched in Bangladesh in 2018, followed by an expansion to Indonesia in 2019.
Until now, Google’s job search option was available as a feature in its Google Pay app under the brand ‘Jobs as Spot’. Now, the company has decided to rebrand the feature as Kormo Jobs and offer a dedicated app.
“In the wake of the pandemic, the jobs landscape stands altered, with demand shifting to new services that require different sets of skills and experience,” Google India said on its official blog.
“Encouraged by this momentum and to lend support to employment efforts in a post-pandemic world, we are bringing our Kormo Jobs Android app to India to help even more job seekers discover and apply for jobs across India with an additional gateway,” the blog added.
This launch by Google is another significant step in India after the company recently joined hands with the Maharashtra government to provide its digital classroom services and committed to invest $10 billion to accelerate the adoption of digital services by 2027. Google had also infused $5.7 billion in Reliance Jio last month.
This app is also launched at a time when according to the latest report provided by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy 5 million salaried people have lost their jobs across the country in July, while a total of 18.9 million salaried jobs have been lost since the onset of lockdown in India.
In its blog Google mentioned that services such as Zomato and Dunzo have found the job matching algorithm of Kormo Jobs effective and have posted over 2 million verified jobs on the platform.
So far, Kormo Jobs has more than 1 million installs on Google Play Store.
