Last week, we reported that Naukri.com, the job search portal came to the various mobile application shops, so users could apply to jobs on the go. Now, rival MonsterIndia.com has launched an application for BlackBerry smartphones, which will allow jobseekers to look for employment on the go. The app provides all the same feature that the web service provides. It also supports the Universal Search feature on smartphones running the BlackBerry 6 OS, and higher. For job seekers, the app provides mobile access to available jobs on Monster.com. The app integrates job alerts with the user's BlackBerry device to deliver matching jobs directly to their message inbox and users can manage their Monster.com account on the go.
Search for jobs on your BlackBerry device
For employers, the app allows them to post and manage new jobs, and also allows them to search and shortlist relevant resumes. The app is a BBM connected application allowing seekers and employers running BBM version 6 (or higher) to share the Monster application and search results with their BBM friends. Sanjay Modi, Managing Director, Monster.com (India/Middle East/South East Asia) said, “We are excited to launch the Monster application on a BlackBerry platform. The significant reach and popularity of BlackBerry smartphones in India provides us an ideal platform to reach out to both jobseekers and employers who want access to MonsterIndia.com from their handset.”
Monster set up shop in India in 2001 with headquarters in Hyderabad and offices in 11 other cities in the country, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata. They also have a portal, Rozgarduniya.com, which acts as a site, exclusively for jobseekers in rural India. It enables employers in corporate India to connect with rural talent. They also partnered up with DishTV to bring a job search service “Monsterjobs Active” to television. The MonsterIndia.com BlackBerry application is available for free, from the BlackBerry App World.
