Empzilla, a chat-based job search mobile app, the first of its kind in the entire country, was unveiled on 20th January 2018 in New Delhi. This launch is in sync with the Digital India initiative of Prime Minister of the country, Shri Narendra Modi. The Chief Guest of the launch function was Mr Arun Singh, National General Secretary, Bharatiya Janata Party. This product is geared towards eliminating presentday limitations of both employers as well as job-seekers. With this, the entire selection process for any job becomes faster and more reasonable. The mobile app gets conversation between both parties started within a matter of a few seconds. Its security features ensure that the prospective employee can chat with his or her future employers within the present office premises without any fear of
anyone coming to know of what he or she is doing or saying. The burden of constant e-mailing and messaging on the HRD also gets reduced to a mere fraction. The app can be downloaded easily from Google Playstore and comes free of cost, as per Mr Akash Attre, Chairman, Empzilla. Empzilla also comes with a geo location feature with which one can pin-point the exact distance between the hiring venue and the registered location of the prospective candidate. A dashboard panel in Empzilla monitors the information flow and makes it easy to access. It does all this by maintaining its security at the same time. The candidate’s resume can be viewed within the app itself and this saves valuable time which would otherwise be spent in downloading it. The candidate can view the exact steps of the entire process right from ‘application viewed’ to ‘application in review’ to ‘shortlisted’ and ‘interview invite’ stages. The conventional method of calling or mailing often is cumbersome and counter-productive as well. In the words of Mr Arun Singh, “we are excited that Digital India is inspiring people to come out with new offerings which not only seek to solve some of the existing problems but also save on costs. I am sure Empzilla app will become popular in no time as it obviates some of the current problems relating to communication between recruiters and job seekers.” With the rising popularity of the internet, Mobile Apps are increasingly being used by people even in smaller cities. The inaugural event was also attended by Mr Raghunath, Joint Commissioner of Income Tax, Mr Sanjay Goel, President, ONGC, Mr. Sameer Anjan and Music Band. Senior officials from TCS, Hindustan Power Ltd, Oracle, Apollo Munich, Apollo Hospital, Tech Mahindra, Ericsson, Wipro Technology, WNS Global Services, HDFC Bank, Bajaj Allianz, Essel Group Ltd, Yes Bank, Jamia Bank and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare were also present on the occasion.
