Times Business Solutions Ltd has released a new revamped mobile site for its job portal TimesJobs.com, in order to allow users to search, select and apply to jobs through their mobile phones.

Features: The new mobile site is currently available through mobile browsers at m.timesjobs.com and offers features like auto login support, improved search functionality, ability to register a new profile or edit an existing profile, receive matching job recommendations, save job listings for later viewing, job alerts, search history (up to last five searches on the device), free daily career horoscope predictions and access to TimesJobs’s premium career services.

Apart from that, the new mobile site also features a unified inbox through which users can receive the latest news and announcements from the site, receive status updates on career services packages they have purchased, get a single click access to matching job alerts, get updates on job application responses, view which recruiter has viewed their profile and read their contact messages (if any).

Our Take: We tried it on an Android device. The site has been divided into three different sections – Search, Set Job Alert and Inbox, accessible through a navigation bar on the top. It has been optimised for the mobile screen and is quite touch friendly with large buttons for links and listings.

  

The homepage features a search box for quick job searches, but to make an advanced search, users need to go through an extra step of clicking the advanced search button, unlike in Naukri’s site where it is upfront. That being said, the search history feature is quite nifty and can come in handy if one needs to access previous listings they had checked out earlier.

There is also a dedicated option to download the native Android app, which we assume, changes to the respective native app depending on the mobile platform. The company currently offers an iOS, Android and a Java app.
