Local Part-Time Jobs: New App Seeks To Democratize Part-Time Employment
EZJobs has just launched its smartphone application on the App Store and Play Store. The app aims at bridging the gap between employers and employees for local, part-time and seasonal jobs
The app makers claim EZJobs will make life easier for both employers and employees as it tackles some key and unaddressed challenges informal in the informal jobs sector. The app itself comes free of cost for both employees and employers. Job seekers can download the app, search for suitable jobs, be discovered by employers and chat with employers.
EZJobs pitches a 4-step hiring solution for employers looking for employees for local, part-time, seasonal and even full-time portfolios. Once they have downloaded the app, employers can either search for candidates or post jobs and let candidates apply to them. Once they connect with employees, they can chat with the employees and recruit suitable talent.
Furthering on the utility of the app for employers, Priyadarshan Patil, co-founder and CTO of EZJobs, said: "The most useful feature of the EZJobs for the employer point-of-view is the ease of hiring. All employers need to do is find someone who they think will be a good fit for the job at hand. Instead of sifting through dozens of pages of copy-pasted resumes, employers can listen and watch candidates in their self-recorded videos."
Priyadarshan elaborated on how the same convenience applies to employees using the app. "With the EZJobs app, there's convenience on both sides. A number of local and part-time employees do not have professional resumes to showcase their features. We are working on something that will allow them to present their resumes to potential employers even in the absence of a resume."
Addressing his followers on social media, Sahasrajit Mitta, Project Coordinator and Technical Consultant at EZJobs, pressed upon the need for an app that targets local employment. "We are living in a time when everyone and everything looks up to high-flying tech portfolios and big-ticket paychecks. While that is important, a big section of the workforce still relies on local and part-time jobs. That is the segment we are addressing with the EZJobs app."
"And there's no hidden compulsions on either side just because the app is free of cost," Sahasrajit continued. "Both employees and employers have total control on which talent or job they choose and what they ignore. Moreover, employees and employers both agree to each other's terms independently, thereby democratizing the local part-time job scene."
The app makers are set to implement new features to expand on the utility of the app in the upcoming versions. At the moment, the app is available for download on the app store and play store.
