New Delhi, 20th January 2018:Taking prime minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India initiative forward, a chat based job search mobile app ‘Empzilla’, first ever of its kind in the country, is being launched that will do away with existing limitations of employers and job seekers making selection process quick and cost effective.
The mobileapp gets conversation between employers and job seekers going in seconds andthe latter can chat with the potential employer even within his office set upwithout letting his peers and seniors know the context of the conversation. Italso relieves the Human Resource department of excessive load of mails and theneed to download all the profiles which is time consuming andconfusing.
“We realizedthere were limitations in the way job seekers were communication with employersso far. To do away with those limitations, we are launching this mobile appwhich will revolutionize the way communications happens between job lookers andrecruiters. This can easily be downloaded from Google Playstore and is free. Itwill also take the government’s Digital India initiative forward,” saidMrAkash Attray, Chairman, Empzilla.
In thetraditional way of communication via mail, SMS or personal call, the candidateand the recruiter are unaware of the exact distance between the hiring venueand candidate’s domicile. The feature of geo location in Empzilla indentifiesthe exact distance between the hiring venue and the registered location of thecandidate.
Evenchecking and downloading all the profiles from mails becomes hectic for the HRdepartment. The HR may miss on the productive older mails also. In Empzilla, itbecomes easy for the recruiter and the hierarchy to monitor the activity aswell the chat. It also becomes easy for the recruiter who can simply review theprofile in the app itself rather than downloading the resume in detail.
Thecandidate receives the notification at every step from ‘application viewed’ to‘application in review’ further ‘shortlisted’ till ‘interview invite’. Thetraditional approach by mail/call creates a larger chance to miss the targetedcandidate due to unfavorable conditions like the candidate being in the officepremises which restricts him or her to discuss other job opportunities. He orshe can also ignore recruiter’s calls being unaware of the caller’s source andpurpose. Chat is least missed when compared to a call.
