A new application, Empzilla, which connects you directly to the recruiters, was launched on Saturday in Delhi. The app was launched by BJP’s National General Secretary Arun Singh at the Siri Fort auditorium.
The application offers a platform to the users which eases the process of recruitment or employment in a conveniently habituated method of ‘Global Chat’.
The mobile app gets conversation between employers and job seekers going in seconds and the latter can chat with the potential employer even within his office set up without letting his peers and seniors know the context of the conversation. It also relieves the Human Resource department of excessive load of mails and the need to download all the profiles which is time consuming and confusing.
In the traditional way of communication via mail, SMS or personal call, the candidate and the recruiter are unaware of the exact distance between the hiring venue and candidate’s domicile. The feature of geo location in Empzilla indentifies the exact distance between the hiring venue and the registered location of the candidate.
Even checking and downloading all the profiles from mails becomes hectic for the HR department. The HR may miss on the productive older mails also. In Empzilla, it becomes easy for the recruiter and the hierarchy to monitor the activity as well the chat. It also becomes easy for the recruiter who can simply review the profile in the app itself rather than downloading the resume in detail.
The candidate receives the notification at every step from ‘application viewed’ to ‘application in review’ further ‘shortlisted’ till ‘interview invite’. The traditional approach by mail/call creates a larger chance to miss the targeted candidate due to unfavorable conditions like the candidate being in the office premises which restricts him or her to discuss other job opportunities. He or she can also ignore recruiter’s calls being unaware of the caller’s source and purpose. Chat is least missed when compared to a call.
This initiative takes the Modi government’s ‘Digital India’ platform to a new level.
