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,

How will it work ?

·          This is a variation of JAM. Here, in the  “ Job Preference” Form, a jobseeker will specify name / names of only those companies, whose job-advts he wants to receive, as alert. Other “ Match- criteria” such as “ City / Function / Designation- Level / Exp” etc may still remain / apply.

Now only jobs advertised by those companies (on any partner jobsite) will get delivered to him as alerts.

Who benefits and how ?

·          A choosey candidate benefits by narrowing down his choice / preference to a few top / well- known / reputed employers, rather than hundreds of companies operating in any particular industry. He does not wish to get inundated with alerts from these second- rung / also – ran companies.

·          By charging Rs. 10 /- per such alert / apply online, Mobile service Provider too, will benefit, for this SUPER PREMIUM SMS

Resume Alert Broadcast [ RAB ]

How will it work?

·          The only difference between RAM and RAB is that

Ø RAM aggregates all matching resumes posted during last 24 hours (on all partner websites) and delivers these profiles to Recruitment Managers, once a day, on their mobiles.


Ø   RAB delivers the suitable candidate’s profile to concerned Recruitment Manager WITHIN 5 MINUTES of that resume getting posted on any partner jobs file!

No Duplicates! No more writing! Grab the candidate before your competitor grabs him!

Who will benefit and How ?

·          The main beneficiaries are the recruitment Managers, who are expected to “ Fill that vacancy yesterday “!

·          Mobile Service Providers will also benefit, because of thousands of PULL (MO) SMS from these Recruitment Managers, requesting delivery of full resume through email.
Resume Alert Mobile [ RAM ]
How will it work ?

·         This is reverse of JAM. Here, a Corporate Recruitment Manager tells us (through “Resume Preference” Form):

  “ Whenever you come across resumes, which match my resume-preference criteria, please send me, once-a-day, 160 character (SMS) profiles of all such candidates on my mobile. Then whichever profiles I like, I will ask you to deliver to me, the full resume, by sending to WWJ, a PULL SMS (MO) as

RAM < PEN NO > 8282 [or any short code]

I don’t want to wait for conducting a resume – search (which is, in any case, absent on WWJ) OR wait till a jobseeker “ Applies online “

Who will it benefit and how ?

·         This is a great convenience to Recruitment Managers. They have to enter their “ Resume Preferences “ only ONCE on WWJ. Then forget PC / Intranet! Now, profiles of perfectly “matched” candidates are delivered on his mobile, once-a-day, wherever the manager may happen to be. MSP’s benefit through increased revenue.

Receiving SMS job–alerts on Mobile,
without submitting resume on WWJ

How will it work ?

·         Senior Executives will “ Register “ and enter their “ Job Preferences “ on WWJ, without submitting themselves to senior to “ Apply Online ” but they are very much interested to know what / how many interesting jobs (at their level) are coming up in the market.

Everyday, WWJ will send them job-alert SMS which match their declared “Job – Alert “ SMS which match their declared “ Job – Preferences “

Who benefits and how ?

·           Of course, these senior executives will benefit. Upon receiving an interesting job – alert SMS, most likely, they will get in touch with a Headhunter and ask him to make discreet inquiry with the advertising company re: his suitability, without, at this stage, revealing his identity.
Job Advt Broadcast [ JAB ]

How will JAB work ?

·         In normal course, WWJ will aggregate all “ matching “ job–advts, for past 24 hours and then send the job-alert SMS on the next day to each JAM subscriber.

However, Corporate HR managers are under tremendous pressure to fill -up vacancies within days. They cannot afford to wait “ passively “. They want their job-advts to reach “ suitable “ candidates WITHIN HOURS.

Under JAB, jobs posted on our partner jobsites will get delivered to “ suitable “ JAM subscribers (as SMS) WITHIN 15 MINUTES of getting posted.

Who benefits and how ?

·         Corporate employers benefit because their jobs will reach hundreds or thousands of “ Matching “ candidates within minutes of posting their advertisements and start receiving resumes within 30 minutes.

·         Jobseekers will get to know of interesting jobs immediately and be first in the queue of applicants by applying online ( - and generating revenue for service provider)

Job Alerts for Clerical Staff / Factory Workers /
Retailing Staff etc.

How will it work?

·         Concept of JAM (Job Alerts On Mobile) will stay the same.
However, for each of these “ categories “, the “Job-Preference” forms and the “Submit-Resume” Forms, will be multiple-choice drop lists and much more narrowly structured.

These will be matched against the “ Classified “ recruitment advts appearing on jobsites, as well as in newspapers (with whom we will tie-up)

Delivery of job-alerts will be as SMS.
Same with “Apply Online“ (MO) SMS.

Who will benefit and how ?

·         From large cities and rich people, mobiles are moving to small towns and (relatively) poor people- to reach 200 million by 2008. Most of these mobiles will belong to categories of jobseekers described here.

For these millions, today, there is an “asymmetry of job-related information“. JAM will provide them with a level-playing-field vis-à-vis their urban counterparts. Now, they will have “access” to jobs, around the country. 
Jobs from USA - UK - CANADA etc.

How will it work ?

·         Currently WWJ downloads / aggregates jobs getting posted on major Indian jobsites (during past 24 hours). We have already developed software to download jobs from American job portals.
     Soon, we will offer / send job-alerts for vacancies in Microsoft / GE / Computer Associate / Oracle/ CISCO/ DELL etc. etc.

     And, Indian IT / ITES professionals, working in Chennai/ Bangalore/ Gurgaon/ Hyderabad/ Mumbai/ Pune etc. (some 850,000?) will get these alerts on their mobiles and will be able to “apply online” to these American Employers, right from their mobiles, halfway across the World

Who will benefit and how ?

·         Biggest beneficiaries will be Indian IT professionals (all of whom, anyway want to migrate to USA!) For a mere Rs. 3/-, they will be able to get their resumes emailed within minutes, to American employers.

·         Mobile Service Providers, too will benefit
