Terming its new Android mobile App as a major development in the Indian job portal sector, Naukri.com Tuesday claimed to have record more than 2.9 lakh downloads of the App within a month of its launch.
According to the company this mobile App is available for free at the Google App store and is currently ranked 134 with a rating of 4.4 stars.
Vibhore Sharma, CTO-Naukri said, “More than two lakh downloads was an important milestone for us. Now it clearly demonstrates that this App has filled the need of job seekers.”
When asked to highlight some of the reasons behind the record number of App downloads, Sharma said that a lot of companies in the present era have a prohibition on recruitment sites in their offices. This App overcomes this problem by letting job seekers obtain access to jobs through their mobile phones.
“23% of our job seekers visit Naukri.com from mobile phones. Job seekers’ response to the android app has been overwhelming. With over 4 lakh detailed job description views , 43,000 searches and more than 50,000 applies a day - Naukri’s Adroid App has made significant inroads into the mobile phones of job seekers,” he said.
Executive Vice President Product and Analytics Naukri, Vivek Jain said this mobile Android is the most extensively used platforms and therefore it was a natural choice for the company to launch an App catering to Android devices.
“Through this App we want to broaden our user base by engaging more with Android users” Vivek said.
