With the digital revolution taking place and the rise of social and online media, consumers are increasingly focusing on the internet to fulfill all their information needs, ranging from entertainment to purchasing and even employment.
Job vacancies on online job portals such as Bikroy.com and BDJobs currently span entry level to management positions and feature a wide variety of jobs within this range. These job sites have also attracted vacancies from organizations ranging from SMEs to leading corporates to the site, thereby providing job seekers with access to a cross section of job opportunities, with Bikroy.com focusing mainly on blue and grey collar jobs and BDJobs skewed towards white collar jobs. At present, trending jobs on Bikroy.com include Customer Service Executives for the BPO industry, Accounting Executives for the finance industry, and Android developers for the IT industry. Many other vacancies also exist such as Quality Control Officers for the garment industry.
As a result of online job portals, finding the right job has become far easier for job seekers who not only have access to a wealth of job opportunities, but can do so with ease from the comfort of their homes and offices. A new feature on Bikroy.com, which enables the applicant’s CV to be attached, offers greater convenience to the job seeker, while speeding up the recruitment process for the employer. “I was trying so many different ways to find a job until I applied to Safara Online through Bikroy.com. The application process was so easy – I just attached my CV and filled out the given fields and within a few days, I got a call for an interview and was hired almost immediately. Bikroy.com’s job site really does work well.” – Shawon Molla (Executive, Safara Online)
Online vacancy ads are effective and convenient to both employers and employees. The Bangladesh Association of Call Center & Outsourcing (BACCO) has recently attracted over 1500 interested applicants for various call center positions at their partner organizations. “We were pleasantly surprised to find such a high volume of qualified applicants,” said Mr. Towhid Hossain, Secretary General, BACCO, “and we needed Bikroy.com’s help just to sort through all the applications!”
