Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Aim of Job Alert Channel is to take job-alerts to every jobseeker.

There could be 4 jobseekers in a family. Each would want job alerts which perfectly match his / her respective resume.

Hence, thru same Subscriber ID / unique Set-top Box No., we should be able to deliver individualized / personalized alerts to each.

Can be done.

While registering on www.bigtv.co.in , each will enter

  • Personal / individual mobile no.,   but

  • Common Subscriber ID / Set-top Box no. belonging to family.

Immediately upon registration, following message will flash:

“Your unique PEN (Permanent Executive Number) is ……………“.

 Whenever you want to see your job-alerts, send following SMS;

 “ JAT< space > PEN < space > Subscriber ID “


BigTV Short code “

This would enable our server to deliver to Reliance Server, job alerts for that particular member of that family.

And from that BigTV prepaid a/c, Re.1/- will get deducted.

I have no doubt, such micro-payment will encourage

·     All job seeking family members to register

·     Daily viewing by each family member

Very likely, a Big TV Subscriber will turn this into a business opportunity.

By inviting job seeking neighbors (who do not have a BigTV subscription), to avail of this facility for Rs.2 /-  !

Then there is following logic in asking for a inclusion of “Subscriber ID “in the SMS :

Let us say Dilip is a registered jobseeker having BigTV subscription.

He is visiting his friend Manoj who is also a BigTV subscriber.

Dilip will send an SMS as described above but type Manoj’s Subscriber Id.

We will deliver Dilip’s job-alerts at Manoj’s residence !

So, Dilip can “ access “ his job-alerts on TV Set of any BigTv Subscriber, anywhere , anytime ! He need not remain tethered to his home !

Of course, you will debit Re.1/- to such BigTV  subscriber who permits his TV set to be used for “ accessing “ job-alerts.

I would not be surprised if 100,000 + CyberCafes of India buy a BigTV Subscription and turn into BigTV JobCafes !
