Starcomms launches Jobs on Phone services
Starcomms Plc has introduced jobs on phone service on mobiles for job-seekers especially young graduates and experienced professionals who seek new employments.
The new service, aptly titled Jobs-on-phone according to the chief commercial officer of Starcomms, Tushar Maheshwari, is a personalized voice based job portal, which helps Starcomms customers to seek new employment or recruitments through their Starcomms fixed or mobile phones.
He explained that the idea about the service was informed by the Starcomms customers’ request on solutions to the difficulty they experience regarding employment opportunities, adding that job vacancies appear in most cases in the newspapers or on the Internet, both of which have limited circulation, time frame and user groups.
Maheshwari said the huge opportunity that the service presents is part of the commitment of Starcomms to listen and proffer solutions to the teeming customers
“The service is designed as a portal, which links employees with prospective employers. It is a service that can be easily accessed by all mobile and fixed Starcomms customers anytime, anywhere, thus providing a large-scale database of jobseekers. It is unique in the sense that it has diversity and a readily available database of jobseekers from different strata of the society rather than just in the newspapers or the Internet. It is very interactive and fast,” Maheshwari said.
He explained that Starcomms customers only required to dial the service code, *32640 to register and create their profile in the voice data base to use the Jobs-on-phone service.
Maheshwari stated that the required data will include information like age, gender, location, qualifications and experience, as soon as a vacancy exists that matches the profile of the customer, and they will be notified on their Starcomms phones via SMS. The customer he added is then expected to dial into the service to listen to the job openings and respond to the advertisement.
Maheshwari, “After this, the profile of the job seekers will be sent to the recruiter. The recruiter listens to the voice profiles of the job seekers and invites those that fit their requirements for test or interview. The recruiter at this stage can call the candidate directly.”
