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.
