Glo launches job search by SMS

Glo Nigeria has introduced a new service that allows job seekers on its network to send their CVs or resumes to prospective employers through SMS.

Named Glo Job Xpress, the service is a new feature of Glo Messenger and it allows subscribers to send their CVs from any type of phone, using regular SMSes. The service will be most useful to job seekers who have no internet access but need to send their CVs on the go as well as those who need to respond instantly to job openings without having to type applications and edit their CVs before sending.

Globacom’s Head of Value Added Services, Samson Isa, said that Glo Job Xpress is the first of its kind in the country and is expected to revolutionize the manner in which applicants apply for positions as they can now send their resumes instantly from any location with the greatest of ease.

Isa says when a subscriber uses Glo Job Xpress, the CV sent via SMS is delivered to the recipient such as the employer, recruitment agent or Human Resources Department 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.

“The most exciting part of Glo Job Xpress, however, is that it allows the subscriber to upload a maximum of 4 resumes or CVs on the online portal www.glomessenger.com. The subscriber can then decide which of the CVs he wants to send out and the selected CV can then be sent instantly to the prospective employer using sms”, he said.

To subscribe, the customer is required to text the keyword CV or REG to 2034 and follow the instructions. Registered users will automatically be assigned an email address unique to their Glo phone numbers which will appear, for example, as [email protected] After registration, the subscriber will be required to upload a maximum of 4 resumes only once on the online portal. Thereafter, subscribers can use the service to send their CVs from anywhere, using SMS only.
