merojob introduced a feature for job seekers to mark
themselves as “Actively Seeking Job” to prioritize themselves who lost their
job during the pandemic and immediately available to join job seekers as the COVID-19
has hit Nepal's labor market hard with many workers losing their jobs inside
and outside the country.
With the news estimating that millions of Nepalese lost
their jobs during the outbreak; this recently added feature is dedicated to
bridge gap between active employers and active job seekers in the fastest way.
"Job postings had declined significantly during the
pandemic and as things slowly return to some form of normality; industries
mainly Information Technology, NGO/INGO's and Educational sector are showing
signs of recovery in terms of hiring," said Mr. Bishnu Karki, Business
Director at merojob.
merojob strives to ensure that hiring and discovering talent
is effortless for employers and will soon enable database access of job seekers
who is actively looking for jobs to recruiters under this initiative.
To protect job seekers privacy, this indicator as well as
other profile information will be hidden, and therefore who sees this indicator
in job seekers profile will be limited to recruiters with database access. Under
the right circumstances, employers looking for talents can approach directly to
job seeker and on the other hand, job seekers will get opportunities to connect
with 34000+ clients registered at merojob.
