Information technology professionals in West Bengal on the lookout for jobs now have a facilitator in the form of the ‘Karma Bhumi’ app. Professionals who have returned from other parts of the country during the pandemic, and are seeking employment opportunities can enlist themselves on the app, which already boasts of over 40,000 enrolled professionals and 400 employers. Almost 8,000 professionals have already bagged jobs through the app.
The app serves as a meeting point for employers and job seekers in the IT and ITeS sectors. It is actually a platform where professionals can register their skills.
It is reported that even employers from outside the country have found suitable candidates on the app’s talent pool.
The state government will soon work to expand the database so that even students from colleges and universities can benefit.
Meanwhile, technology firm, Vegavid Technology, has developed an application called ‘MyRojgaar’, which can connect skilled and unskilled workers with employers or businesses who need their services across the country.
The objective is to connect labourers with companies/MSMEs across sectors, such as hospitality, agriculture, construction, manufacturing and transportation. The app helps workers bag jobs suited to their skills and location.
Apple is also reported to be working on an app that will help connect millions of migrant workers in the country to needy employers. Aptly called ‘Apna’, it is expected to benefit the less privileged workers, who do not speak English.
