Google’s Kormo Jobs to help job seekers in India


• Google has expanded its jobs app, called Kormo Jobs, to India as it looks to displace Microsoft’s LinkedIn in the world’s second-largest internet market

• First launched in Bangladesh in 2018 and expanded it to Indonesia last year

• Google says a number of companies, including Zomato and Dunzo have posted more than 2 million verified jobs on the platform

• In addition to helping users identify open calls for entry-level roles, the Kormo Jobs app is also designed to help them learn new skills, and easily create a CV

• Earlier this month, Google rolled out a virtual visiting card feature in India

• In India, LinkedIn had about 24 million monthly active users on Android in July, up from about 22 million during the same period a year ago while Google reaches about 400 million users in India
