ForgetMeNot Africa has teamed up with Glo Mobile to launch “Job Xpress”. Job Xpress is an internet-free, SMS-based application that allows users send CVs and job applications to mobile emails via any mobile phone.
Job Xpress is being launched across africa and is being adopted by Glo Mobile in Nigeria. This comes at a time when Nigeria’s unemployment rate stands at 23.9 per cent and youth unemployment at 41.6 per cent.
ForgetMeNot Africa also provides internet-free access to Facebook, email and online chat services to over 62 million people across the continent. The company partnered with Kenya’s iHub and Safaricom to launch an SMS Apps challenge last year via its Optimiser Platform.
