TimesJobs.com has entered into a strategic partnership with NowPos Online Services Pvt Ltd, a Hyderabad-based niche voice technologies products company, to launch what it claims, the world’s first voice resume service. The service is exclusively targeted at the BPO industry in its first phase.
Potential and existing BPO employees can now “speak and record” their resumes, including answering a few typical questions and read a randomly system-chosen paragraph as part of their online resume. The entire technology of this voice suite is available TimesJobs.com and has been branded as Timesjobs Talkies.
“TimesJobs Talkies will cut recruitment cycles, reduce cost, time and manpower involved in recruitment and enable BPO companies to enter a straight third-round interview after the online shortlisting of CVs,” said R Sundar, President, Times Business Solutions.
Ayyappa Nagubandi, Leader, NowPos, said, “The partnership with TimesJobs.com creates several unique solutions for the BPO industry, and will be later extended to the entire HR industry, where CVs, first round short-listing and subsequent interviews, empowered by NowPos patent-applied voice technology, will change the way jobs are to be found and people recruited.”
NowPos was set up by Nagubandi in partnership with three other people in 2004. The company kicked off the first solution voice email last year in various languages, which can be used by handicapped people as well. NowPos was rated by Frost & Sullivan as among ‘Top 20 Broadband Innovations in Asia Pacific’, the only Indian company to feature in the list.
