Nigeria - Job seekers get help from Globacom
Globacom has introduced a service that allows subscribers, especially job seekers send their Curriculum Vitae (CV) or resumes to prospective employers through Short Messaging Service (SMS).
In a statement, the company said the service, Glo Job Express, is a new feature of Glo Messenger which allows subscribers send their CVs using regular SMS by sending the keyword CV or REG to 2034 to start.
Glo Messenger is an SMS to email/Instant Messaging service that was launched to enable non- Internet users send and receive emails on Yahoo, MSN, etc, directly from their mobile phones via SMS.
Globacom’s Head of Value Added Services, Mr Samson Isa, explained that with Glo Job Express, a subscriber sends CV via SMS. This is delivered to the recipient such as the employer or recruitment agent as a regular mail with pre–composed job application or cover letter in the body of the email with the sender’s CV as an attachment.
