In 2019, Google introduced ‘Jobs’ Spot on its digital payment app ‘Google Pay’ to help job seekers in India find entry-level jobs. The Jobs was originally piloted in Bangladesh and subsequently launched in Indonesia, under the brand Kormo Jobs. It has since grown into a job platform that can help job seekers and businesses of all sizes. The platform is now available in India, too. It is available as an Android app and Google has also rebranded its Jobs Spot on Google Pay to Kormo Jobs for consistent experience.
