Recherche d’offres d’emploi? Njorku Launches Its French Version

The last time we wrote about Njorku, it had just released a Google-esque search engine for African jobs with solutions for job seekers and recruiters.

Njorku had earlier tweaked its algorithm in order to display more relevant and better search results for jobs than before, had launched its mobile version and was available to users in Nigeria, Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, Uganda and Egypt.

Today, the job search engine has launched its French version for French-speaking users and targeted at francophone countries such as Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire and Gabon, although it is yet to make jobs available in any of these countries yet.

For instance, when you search for the word ‘Développeur’ (French word for Developer) in Cameroun, it doesn’t show any results, not even en Afrique. However, a search for the word ‘Programmeur’ (French word for Programmer) in Cameroun showed just two results, albeit with a twist.

The algorithm asked, “Did you mean: programmer’ which when clicked also showed the same two results, although in French, not English as expected.

The new French interface also supports time utilities, so you can search for jobs within the past hour, past 24 hours, past week, past two weeks, past month, and even past year.

The site now allows French-speaking job seekers to upload their CVs and create email / SMS alerts for jobs. It also plans to help employers and recruiters in Francophone Africa to search thousands of CV’s uploaded daily by job seekers all over Africa and the rest of the world.

Njorku was launched in March 2011 and claims to have indexed thousands of jobs across Africa.
