QuikrJobs, India based online hiring platform for blue collar and entry level white collar hiring, has recently launched ‘be smart’, a campaign aimed to educate and caution candidates about potential frauds while applying for jobs online.
With stray cases of fraud being reported, QuikrJobs creates awareness about fictitious recruiters and job offers that could potentially mislead job-seekers.
The ‘be smart’ campaign is a proactive step by QuikrJobs to help ensure that job-seekers have a safe and smart job-seeking experience on the platform. It includes safety tips that help identify fake job offers and also advises against making any form of payment to a recruiter, in order to secure a job.
‘Jobs’ as a category in the online medium is one of the most vulnerable and the ‘be smart’ campaign helps combat this vulnerability by creating awareness about potential fraud. As part of ongoing quality improvisations on the QuikrJobs platform, it has increased the level of alerts at every touch point during the job search and application process.
Apart from alerts, QuikrJobs will also be using social media and a combination of direct mailers and SMS updates to educate all its registered job-seekers.
QuikrJobs currently has over 70 lakh active candidates who have applied for a job at least once in the last 6 months. It provides candidates and recruiters easy role based searches with free job and profile postings. Enabling easy profile creation online, it also helps bridge the gap between recruiters and a large portion of the country’s job-seekers that have no access to the internet with the help of Quikr’s pioneering missed call service.
