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.
