Hirect’s New Feature Enables Users to Search for Jobs ‘Nearby’
Hirect has recently launched a new update to their existing application that will enable candidates to easily find jobs closer to their desired location. The new update is focused on simplifying users’ job users’ search experience.
The latest version in iOS 2.4.1 and android 3.1.7 updates of the application include the “Nearby” feature that allows the jobseekers to look out for jobs seamlessly. The “Nearby” feature allows the users to pinpoint their current location and enable them to filter out the relevant job opportunities near to their vicinity. Once the user grants access to the location, the application will populate the job feed of the candidate in ascending order of their distance. For instance, if a candidate is located in Goregaon, Mumbai, he/she can look out for relevant job opportunities and can choose as per their location.
Talking about the latest update, Mr. Raj Das, Global Co-founder and CEO of Hirect India said, “We are thrilled to unveil our brand new feature with the latest release in both the versions of the application. As a brand, we strive to provide better solutions that will help both the job seeker and the recruiters. As part of our research, we found that there is a section of job seekers who are not willing to relocate for jobs due to family and personal commitment. This feature is designed keeping them in mind and the recruiters who want to hire candidates closer to where they operate. I am certain this feature will disrupt the hiring market as it will significantly cut down the hiring time on both ends.’’
Hirect links the startups to the great talent of the country within a minute on one platform using AI-enabled metadata. The objective of the update in the app is to make the job search process for candidates simpler and easier allowing them to search for preferred jobs near their vicinity. The App is standardized and designed in such a way that it connects the right job seekers and recruiters through a rigorous verification process without the intervention of middlemen.

Use This Top Safety Features to Make Your WhatsApp Experience Better
WhatsApp groups are a blessing for all. From buzzing family groups to coordinating with colleagues or planning a birthday party for a friend, WhatsApp groups make everything seamless and secure. On certain days though, we may have to deal with instances like being added to groups that aren’t relevant to us or receiving unverified forwards. Challenging as might be, users can take control of their experience by using various safety features available on WhatsApp to ensure they remain protected while communicating with friends and family.
Here are the top safety features you should start using now:
1. Block and Report: Unlike traditional SMS, WhatsApp provides a simple way for users to block accounts and make reports to WhatsApp if they encounter problematic messages in individual or group chats. We encourage users to report problematic contacts to us. In addition, we now provide the option for people to keep reported messages on their phones if they want to share them with fact-checkers or law enforcement officials.
2. Forward Limits: In addition to limiting highly-forwarded messages to one chat at a time, which has resulted in a 70% reduction in this type of content across WhatsApp, we have also introduced new group forwarding limits where messages that have the “forwarded label” can only be forwarded to one group at a time, rather than five. If you are not sure of the source of a message, don’t forward it.
3. Group Privacy Settings: On Whatsapp, only people with your phone number can add you to a group. WhatsApp’s group privacy settings and group invite system allow users to decide who can add them to groups. Don’t let anyone add you to any group without your permission. The three options let you choose – everyone can add you to a group, your contacts, or those you choose from your contacts.
4. Leave Group Silently: When you choose to exit a group silently, it will not notify everyone in the chat thread but only the group admins. This feature aims to help users feel more comfortable about leaving groups they no longer wish to be in.
5. Admin control: By default, any group participants can send messages and change the group information including, the group subject, icon, or description. However, WhatsApp settings enable administrators to decide who can send messages within groups.
6. Fact checking on WhatsApp: In India, there are 10 independent fact-checking organizations on WhatsApp that help users to identify, review, and verify the information and help prevent the spread of misinformation on its platform. Additionally, WhatsApp enables its users to verify the information by texting The Poynter Institute’s IFCN WhatsApp chatbot to validate a message or information. WhatsApp encourages users to verify news that sounds suspicious or fake.
WhatsApp is an industry leader among end-to-end encrypted messaging services in preventing abuse and promoting online security. Committed to keeping you and your private messages safe, WhatsApp believes in empowering users with tools, features, and resources that help them make informed decisions and keep your communication safe and secure.
