With the government’s easing of the lockout, many unemployed people like Netra and Vipin have started looking for jobs through digital platforms, i.e. online platforms.
As the number of digital users has increased in recent times, now there is an arrangement to get a job by applying through online plate. In which you can find jobs from online platform, website, Facebook page, Instagram and mobile app.
Unemployed people will be able to apply for a job online through various websites. Similarly, in Nepal, Mero Job, Rozgari.com, Global Job.com, Jobs Nepal, HR Nepal, Kumari Jawal and other companies have been working to provide jobs by negotiating between employers and job seekers.
Shailendra Giri, the founder of the company, says that he has succeeded in becoming a pioneer of Nepal’s online job.
“Everyone’s activities went down immediately after the lockdown. For five months, only 5 percent of the work was done, ‘Giri said.
However, he said that the vacancies of the employer companies have come down with the closure of business in the market. He says that it is natural that there will be less vacancies from the employers as soon as the lockdown is closed. According to him, the number of people applying for vacancies in the market has increased.
Now that the lockdown has eased, people have started applying for jobs such as managers, accountants, drivers and laborers. My job is to open vacancies for managers, accountants, marketing and office workers. Similarly, at Rozgari.com, drivers, laborers, construction helpers, peons and construction workers can apply for the post.
He claims that the online platform ‘My Job’, which was established in 2009, has so far employed more than one lakh people. Similarly, he said that more than 20,000 people have got employment through ‘Rozgari.com’ established in 2012.
HR Nepal has also been working for a long time through online platforms for employers, employees and the general public.
Similarly, the number of applicants has increased due to the shortage of vacancies during the lockdown, said Dev Giri, founder of HR Nepal. He is of the view that the number of applicants has also increased due to high unemployment during the lockdown.
“As a result of the lockdown, many businesses have been shut down and staff cuts have been made,” he said.
According to him, the number of vacancies from employers is less than in the past. He says that currently even 10 percent vacancies have not come in the market.
This organization provides job vacancies for people above 12 years of age. In which vacancies are opened for people like official staff, managers, schools, colleges, consultants, manpower, salesmen, accountants.
In the past, 50/60 people used to come to the office to understand, but now the number of people looking for a job by phone or through virtual means has increased. He said that due to the current corona, people are not able to walk outside much, so the employers who need employees have started conducting interviews through virtual ones.
Similarly, according to Pushpa Neupane, Head of Customer Service at Global Jobs Nepal, the market went down due to the lockdown.
“No company can hire new employees in this situation,” she said. “No employer is trying to hire new employees in an emergency.”
According to her, despite the increase in the number of searches, the number of vacancies for employers has come down. According to her, the vacancy rate has dropped by 20 percent. She also said that even during the lockdown period, some people are doing work from home through virtual interviews.
Corona, which has been employing 20 to 25 people in the past, has made it difficult to place even 5 to 10 people, according to the online founders. In addition, 80 percent of employers have said that the number of vacancies has decreased.
All the online founders say that the vacancies have come down due to the fact that most of the companies have made cuts due to the lockdown. As a result, the number of applicants has increased.
