Google Indonesia has introduced Kormo, an application for job seekers to connect with hundreds of businesses that are looking to hire.

The app, currently available in Bangladesh and India, also allows job seekers to create a digital curriculum vitae (CV), as well as apply for a job, schedule an interview and learn some new skills.

As a CV is one of the most vital steps in securing a job, Kormo helps create resumes by only requiring the job seekers to fill in personal data, alongside their vision and interests. The CV created can be printed for further use as well.

Another highlight of the Kormo app is the Learn tab that provides videos, articles and courses that job seekers could use for free in order to update and improve their skills. When a job seeker completes a training module, he or she will be awarded a badge that recruiters could see.

First launched in March, Kormo Indonesia can now connect job seekers with job openings in Jakarta, Bali, Surabaya in East Java and Yogyakarta.

“We are already connected with 25,000 workers and teaming up with hundreds of companies in this phase,” Bickey Russell, project lead of Kormo, said on Wednesday at a Google Indonesia event as quoted by kompas.com.

Among the companies that have posted job openings on Kormo are Bukalapak, tiket.com, Go-Life and Union Group.

Previously, Google had a “job search” feature in Google Search, which Russell said was not used as often as expected. (vel/mut)
