SMART PHONE MFRRS.

You know it better than anyone else

Some 6 Million Smart Phones / Tablets will be sold in India in 2012

All because of the Apps

Apps like  “ My Jobs “  widget , which Suneet Tuli [ Datawind ] plans to pre-install on all Aakash / Ubislate Tablets , starting end Jan

To quote Suneet :

“ Dear Hemen

Thank you for your proposal. I think this is a great app and would be useful to our customer base. We would be happy to include your App on all our devices “

May be you would too

If so feel free to phone me ( M ) 0-98,67,55,08,08

WHY IS MY JOB BETTER

On Android Market , you will find a number of “ Job Search “ apps, such as :

> Monster Job Search            > Job Street Job Search
> Indeed Jobs                       > LinkUp Job Search Engine
> Job Search HireADroid        > Career Builder
> Dice Job Search                 >  TimesJobs ………………  etc

All of these apps ask jobseekers to enter , one or more , of the following “ Search Parameters “, on a small mobile screen( - since it cannot accommodate long drop-lists ? ) :

>  Job Title                >  Keywords            >  Type of Job
>  Skills                    >   Function             >  Location
>  Company Name     > Boolean [ and / or / not ]

Then return between 50 to 1500 so-called “ matching jobs “, which , a jobseeker must open / read , one at a time , to finally “ zero –in “ on 5 !

These apps are trying to replicate the PC context on a 3” screen – assuming jobseeker will remain glued for 4 hours !

“ My Jobs “ begs to differ !

It believes in matching the resume of each jobseeker , every morning , with 400,000 + jobs in our database , find those 5 perfectly matching jobs  and deliver only those 5 onto his mobile screen!

In the words of author Chuck Martin [ The Third Screen ], it makes “ My Jobs “ , a “ Finder “ type app , rather than a “ Searcher “ type apps – which , Chuck believes , are totally unsuitable for the mobile context

I request you to give me an opportunity to personally explain the advantage of “ pre – installing “ My Jobs “ app on Smart phones / Tablets being manufactured by your company

Do not hesitate to phone me on 0-98,67,55,08,08 (Mumbai )
