Bengaluru-based staffing solutions company Quess Corp has launched QJobs, its proprietary platform to help blue collar job seekers find jobs closer to where they are, based on their interests and skills. The app which is currently available in five languages â Hindi, English, Tamil, Kannada and Telugu, is designed for both mobile and web-based experience.
According to a survey commissioned by Quess Corp, demand for contractual employees and specialised gig workers has shot up by 30% over the last year â and expected to increase further.
Through QJobs, Quess aims to address the issues of job creation, job discoverability and job matching by providing a comprehensive solution that allows employers to find the right talent, while allowing job seekers to showcase their skills and find employment closer to their location.
The App has advanced matching capabilities that not only help job seekers discover the right job at the right time but also provisions for the creation of a digital profile called âJob passportsâ that can be updated with their skills in a certain domain (from Basic English to Sales Proficiency etc.). Further, QJobs creates a long-term career trajectory for blue collar workers, offering them access to resources such as resume building as well as certification modules, to develop new skills or upskill themselves over time and highlight the same, thus creating a pipeline of industry-ready talent that retains its relevance over time.
The app also has the ability to screen candidates based on requirements of the organisation which posts the job. It comes with a skill verification feature which would help companies choose candidates who only have verified their skills using the skill tests within the app.
