babajob

Every job portal shows formal jobs and it is restricted only to some jobs. However, Babajobs is a portal that allows informal job searching to the job seekers. It is one of the India’s largest informal and entry-level job portals.

The main aim of babajob.com is to provide the job seekers better paying jobs that are near to their vicinity. This saves time and effort. The idea behind starting this job portal is that employers of informal labor lack digital solutions for hiring needs. Usually this informal job searching is of offline method and they are often troublesome. The sourcing of appropriate candidate may not be possible by the offline methods.

In order to solve this problem Babajobs started India’s largest digital database for informal sector jobs and job seekers. This job portal provides ingress to both employers and seekers through a variety of mediums like digital channels, web, voice and mobile services in various languages.
