GPS app makes jobs just a phone away!

Tokyo, Japan: LocationValue, a Japanese placement agency, is using cellphones’ GPS feature to quickly match workers to temporary jobs, doing away with interviews and other formalities. Job applicants need to send the company their resumes and make requests about the times of the day and workplaces where they want to work, Kyodo news agency reported.
The firm locates the applicants, using the GPS built into their cellphones and promptly contacts prospective employers. Employers can view applicants’ track records of work performances on LocationValue’s phone site and dispense with face-to-face job interviews before landing capable workers.
At present, an estimated 320,000 workers are registered with the company’s service. While there are no registration fees, the company charges an employer USD 40.31 per hire.
