Job hunt is easy with this K–DISC app linking you to employers world-wide

Thiruvananthapuram: For Keralites all the world is the hunting ground for jobs. More than 5 million job-seekers in Kerala are set to benefit from a mobile application designed to connect them with the employers around the world. The app which is developed by the Digital University would go on floors by next month.

The Digital Workforce Management System (DWMS) developed by Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K–DISC) would be turned into an app.

Even though DWMS was part of the K–DISC website, it wasn’t popular. Among the 3.94 lakh registered users, only 1.5 lakh were regular visitors.

Meanwhile, around 900 employers have been registered so far. The authorities are trying to increase the number of employers in order to create at least 2,000 job opportunities per day.

Jobs are aplenty, reveals the website. More than 8,000 vacancies remain vacant as eligible candidates have not been found.

Until now the registered users had to log into the website regularly to keep up with the updates. With the introduction of the app, the candidates would get notifications of vacancies as per their qualifications, on their mobile phones.

Survey by Kudumbashree
Kudumbashree workers would visit homes to register the job-seekers on behalf of the K–DISC.

Only the educational details of the job seekers would be collected in the survey. The candidates may add additional qualifications, work experience, aptitude and the expected salary while registering on the app.

Contract-based jobs in the public departments where recruitment is not done through the Public Service Commission or other recruitment bodies too would come under this app. However, job placement agencies would be avoided.
