We want to make it easy for them to reach us and make jobs just a touch away. Through this app, it will now be possible to track job applications status on-the-go.”
Dinesh Singh, Head of Mobile Technology, added, “Aasaanjobs app is the only app that makes location-based job search possible. Unique quality of this app where user can schedule the first round of interview from the app. It is lightweight and has clean user interface. Special attention has been given to the ease of using. It is as easy as making your own facebook profile is.”
The Asasaanjobs app, available for Android, is free to download and currently features no ads. After downloading the app, job seekers enter their location and preferred line of work. After entering the required details and tapping the search button, the app is supposed to display a list of relevant job vacancies in the user’s location. The user then selects a job from the list, and the app is supposed to reveal a page wherein the user can view the details of the vacancy and apply for employment.

The company said, “We are in the process of creating a digital identity for the millions who play such a crucial role in the ever expanding service industry of the country. The platform went live in August 2014. The company is focused on disrupting the extremely frictional recruitment industry by making the process quick, convenient and smooth for all the collaborators. The playfield is a multi-billion dollar domestic market and an even bigger international market, which is looking for meaningful consolidation. Such a consolidation would ensure that people are not haggling with sub-standard products but are being offered a delightful one.”
