TechDesk360: Google New App Launch “Kormo“: On this wednesday, Google India has launched a new job searching app in India. This app was first launched in Bangladesh in 2018, and then was expanded to Indonesia in 2019.
Kormo helps you to find jobs which match according to your Curriculum Vitae (CV). It also recommends jobs on the basis of user profile and they can apply for suitable matches.
Last year, Google brought an initial experience of Kormo Jobs to the Indian market through a Jobs Spot section on Google Pay. The company claims that through the Google Pay integration, employers including Dunzo and Zomato were able to post over 20 lakh verified jobs. There are, however, no details about how many people were able to receive employment from those listings of jobs.
Jobs Spot on Google Pay was specifically designed for entry-level positions. With Kormo Jobs, Google may go beyond entry-level positions to compete with LinkedIn as well as India job portals including Naukri, Shine.com, and TimesJobs. The arrival of the Google app could also make the competition tougher for classified advertising platforms Quickr and Olx that have dedicated job listings to cater to job seekers.
