News : Tech Mahindra to Expand its Saral Rozgar Job Marketplace
Aug 29, 2014 -- Mahindra Group subsidiary Tech Mahindra Ltd is expanding its job marketplace service Saral Rozgar, reports Livemint.
Saral Rozgar was launched in 2011 by the company in partnership with NGO Rashtriya Rozgar Mission and was deployed on the Tata Docomo network in 2012. The service which piloted in 800 locations across the country will now be expanded to 100,000 locations around the country and be launched as a direct-to-customer service rather than through telecom operators.
Job candidates can now access the service directly via phone by buying the saral rozgar card. The company claims the access cards will be available through telecom recharge retailers across the country. The card allows a candidate to call the company’s call centre and create an online resume.
Companies looking for job seekers can also register through the call centre. The company can then shortlist the candidates from the required category and contact them via automated calls in regional languages or via SMS. Candidates are then able to connect directly with the employers without involving intermediary agencies.
The portal currently lists job openings in accounting, electricals, retail, tailoring, cooks, machine operators, security guards, delivery boys and food and beverage executives from companies like Cafe Coffee Day and Godrej Industries Ltd. among others.
