Monster.com ties up with CSC to launch an eKYC-based job portal

Monster.com has tied up with CSC eGovernance Services India Ltd, a governance portal by the Department of Information and monsterTechnology, to launch a new e-KYC based job portal for rural India.

Through this portal, Village level entrepreneurs (VLEs) can help job seekers who have an Aadhaar number upload their resume and access the services of the Common Services Centres (CSC) for jobs. The website can be accessed at csc.rozgarduniya.com.

From an initial look, the website seems to be active only for job seekers in Uttar Pradesh at the moment. It currently offers jobs for professionals, technicians, clerks, agricultural & fishery workers, craft workers and plant & machine operators among others.

The site suggests that the job portal will have a brick and mortar presence across all states and 1,26,000 CSC villages through Common Service Centres (CSCs) managed by CSC eGovernance Services India. Monster.com will be providing its technology expertise to the site.

CSC RozgarDuniya

Rozgar Duniya: Note that this isn’t the first time Monster.com has provided technology support for rural job portals in India. Earlier in 2009, it had partnered with ITC to create RozgarDuniya using the e-chaupals kiosk network.

What’s however different in the current iteration is that it is looking at village level entrepreneurs to take a more active role in fielding candidates and resumes. VLEs now can earn commissions ranging from Rs 16 to Rs 118 for various tasks such as registrations, uploading of CVs, verification of documents, ensuring that the candidate has an Aadhaar card, and getting job seekers to subscribe to receive job SMS job alerts among others.

The new website however does not provide support to Indic languages and is available only in English at the moment. We feel this might put off job seekers considering they are catering to the rural market. In comparison, The Rozgar Duniya website was in Hindi & English. It offered jobs across various categories such as textiles and weaving, teaching, mechanic and auto repair, data entry and industrial jobs such as motor binding, steel fabrication, glass blowing, khallasi and administration jobs. More on that here.
