We broke the news here on TechLoy that a new search engine for African jobs called Njorku would be launched soon.
Recently, we posted exclusive screenshots of what the job search engine would look like.
Today, Njorku.com launched (a few minutes ago) in public beta, though still buggy. The job search engine crawls the web (especially job sites) to find jobs based on keyword searches and makes them available to users.
Njorku’s search results show links to job sites around the web that have jobs related to your keyword search. However, not all search results on the Njorku job search engine are relevant, but at least you’ll get results.
The mobile version of the site makes job search faster and easier as it automatically creates a mobile version of every job site. So even if a job site doesn’t have a mobile version (and naturally takes longer time to load web page), Njorku mobile automatically converts the job site into a mobile version.
With Njorku, you can find jobs published on different job sites from different countries at a time (for now you can search for jobs in Cameroon and Nigeria).
It is still uncertain if/how Njorku would integrate SMS alerts for jobs and also with social networking sites such as naijaborn.com and camerborn.com.
What do you think of Njorku? Will you use the job search engine?
