The search giant hopes to help millions of people looking for entry-level jobs and further replace Microsoft LinkedIn as the world’s second-largest Internet market.
the company launched kormo jobs in Bangladesh for the first time in 2018 and expanded it to Indonesia last year. Also last year, Google used jobs spot as its brand name for kormo in its Google pay app in India. Some companies, including zomato and dunzo, a Bangalore based start-up, have released more than two million validated jobs on the platform, Google said.
Google said today that it is renaming the jobs spot on Google pay as kormo jobs in India, and it is also providing independent Android applications in India, one of its major overseas markets. In addition to open recruitment for entry-level positions, the kormo jobs app is designed to help users learn new skills and easily create resumes.
bickey Russell, regional manager and head of operations for kormo jobs, said the company will continue to invest in bringing new functions and positions to the app in the future. The move further illustrates Google’s growing interest in pursuing a large piece of work-related search business. The company launched a working search engine in the United States in 2017 and has since expanded it to multiple markets. Earlier this month, it launched a similar feature in India.
Google’s efforts in this area are in the position of harming LinkedIn, because LinkedIn’s influence in emerging markets is not strong. Take India as an example. According to app Annie, LinkedIn’s Android monthly active users were about 24 million in July, up from about 22 million in the same period last year. Google has about 400 million users in India. In any case, any app that helps people find jobs will come in handy for tens of millions of Indians, who reported record high unemployment at the height of the new epidemic. Global Tech
