An Indian job portal has launched a new mobile application that could make your job hunt instant and accessible.

Monsterindia.com says the app will also alert users real time when relevant jobs are posted online.

The company said it is also introducing social networking elements through its Professional Networking platform.

A user will have to first create their profile with career status from pre-defined classifications. “Once you choose this option, the data would be used by the app to pull out only the most relevant job postings and information for you,” the company said in a statement.

According to it the entire app experience, including search results, smart job recommendations, job openings and notifications, is then accordingly customized based on the user’s inputs.

The feature also works in the passive mode so users are alerted to relevant job openings and new opportunities even when they are not actively looking out for a job.

“You can get incisive data on the completeness of your profile, who is viewing your profile, and how often you have appeared in recruiter searches with Activity Meter,” it said.

In case you have failed to update your profile the app also reminds you to do so.

Job seekers can build their professional network now on the Monster Professional Networking for Jobs and connect with other Monster users, recruiters and companies to find better jobs. Users can also import external contacts, follow and connect with potential recruiters and companies, to stay updated with job postings and company updates.
