In the month of October, this year, India recorded its highest unemployment rate, compared to the last three years. The unemployment rate jumped to 8.5 percent, the data from the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) revealed. This was the highest since August 2016.
During this phase, Way2News, a Hyperlocal Short News App despite this news development, helped the youth in India find jobs.
According to the statistics received for October, more than two thousand jobless youth had finally found jobs after receiving job notifications via the app called Way2News. Our partners like IKYA Human Capital Solutions, Hyderabad Jobs Club, TeamLease Services Ltd, Big C, Randstad India, Maxmuller Global Education, SBI Cap, Lot mobiles, Happi mobiles, Matrimony.com and others were left amazed seeing the app users engaging with the companies to apply for the posts. “The traffic we received was dangerous. We had to close down our telephone lines. We could not handle it,” said Mr. Ravi, associated with Randstad India.
The engagement on this short news application is massive from the rest. It is far ahead from other news aggregators. The app has an hyperlocal approach which makes it more reachable to different areas based on the user select location. Job portals might be doing wonders in the urban world but Way2News, which is known for its Hyperlocal presence is going great guns in both the arenas. The Human Resourse professionals were surprised as thousands of job-seekers flooded their telephonic lines. This is just a beginning of something big!!!
The highest recruitment number was recorded in Hyderabad Jobs Club (250) and Ikya Human Solutions (160). The other companies recruited between 100-120 job seekers.
How Did This Work?
Way2News, on October 1st, 2019 launched a new category – Job Notifications to help the jobless across India find a decent work for a better future. India’s unemployment rate is touching new heights every day and people in the country are finding it tough to find better workplaces. The app wanted to fill the gap. Based on a user’s location, his/her app behavior, his/her search activity on the app, the company sent personalised job notifications finding them fit for the post. Surprisingly, it worked. In just 30 Days during our trial stage, we were able to help more than 2000 people find jobs on this platform.
In the month of November, we are expecting the numbers to double. We encourage you to share this massive feat achieved by the company and help people in need find jobs on the go. Install the app using Play Store or App Store. We have a special category for Jobs, find it and you are good to go.
