Mumbai: Short jobs.in is an on-demand platform launched by Eye Media Networks for flexible work opportunities with a vision to fill in the gaps between people who have lost their jobs in this pandemic and companies looking to fill the contract based/ temporary jobs. It aims to mobilize on the open talent economy, commonly known as the gig economy, and aims to democratise the Indian job market using new age technology.
Today’s job market is very uncertain due to the Corona crisis and the gig economy consists of contractors, consultants, freelancers, and subject matter experts who are increasingly seeking flexible models of employment. That’s when Mr.Umang M got motivated to bridge the gap between job seekers and the employers and help the people who are losing jobs and virtually had nothing at home. Umang explained, “We have developed a platform that will give the jobseekers an opportunity to find jobs which may not be permanent jobs but short jobs/ contract assignments. They can find temporary jobs depending on their skills sets. For example anyone in IT who has expertise in different fields can look for an assignment in one IT back-end job for a short period similarly a person working in a hotel industry who has lost his job can look for a job as COVID-19 marshal. They can get an appointment in companies and hospitals and bigger offices where marshals are being appointed and trained to guide the visitors. You can search for hundreds of jobs over this platform that matches your skill sets. Similarly Companies looking out for talents across industries get access to different skill sets of individuals. Employers can offer opportunities across levels and roles in the organisation. They also open themselves up to a larger talent pool, which includes people who have lost their jobs, new mothers, homemakers, freshers and retired professionals.”
