Job search portal Naukri.com, has introduced free job search apps on mobile for all smart phone users. This includes special apps for iphone, Blackberry and Android devices and an exclusive HTML5 site.
Info Edge, the company behind the site, said on Thursday, "Both the mobile app and the site is enriched with features which allow jobseekers to filter job openings by location, keywords, functional area, experience bracket and minimum expected salary. Also, users can create up to five custom job alerts on the basis of the search criterion defined by them."
The job alerts are directly sent to the users' inbox three times a week. To make job search further convenient and mobile friendly, as soon as the user logs into the site it will automatically recommend jobs on the basis of the information provided during the profile creation process. Jobseekers can view the detailed job descriptions and apply directly from their mobile devices.
Commenting on the same, Vibhore Sharma, EVP, Technology, Naukri.com said, "Mobile devices are bringing about a revolution in the way people use Internet and consume content from the web and smartphones are the new basic phones that would eventually engage users more than a PC. With the launch of our apps and (re-purposed) 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 HTML5 site has been optimized to work with all popular smart phones. Further, through this platform jobseekers can also manage and update their Naukri profile. Users can keep a track on how many times their CV has been viewed by an employer and also which companies have they applied for jobs earlier.
