Qjobs, a jobs platform for blue and grey collar recruitment, has achieved 10x growth amassing 2 million job seekers in a year.
The job-seeking platform added the latest 1 million job seekers in a record time of 100 days and more than doubled jobs in the third quarter (Q3) of the financial year (FY22) itself, buoyed by the festive seasonal demand by Enterprises and SMBs.
Qjobs has just launched a category disrupting AI-assisted recruitment module, ‘Fastrack,’ which aims to cut the recruitment time by 99percent – to 5 minutes from the typical three days.
Fastrack can pre-screen candidates, conduct video interviews, and release offers to skilled and verified workforce enabling companies to hire at scale. The platform plans to eventually make Fastrack available to more than 4,000 companies in Q4 FY22.
