Babajob will give them access to the past seven years worth of operations data.
This includes records of more than seven million job seekers, one million job posts with more than six million vacancies.
The World Bank team is bringing in technical expertise for the labour market analysis. Through the project, the joint team will also conduct a Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) to test how jobseekers’ assessments of non-cognitive skills can contribute to a better match between job seekers and employers.
“We are excited to be working with the World Bank on this project,” said Babajob.com co-founder Vir Kashyap in an interview with Deacon Herald.
The joint research agenda includes multiple dimensions of the labour market assessment, including India’s labour market trends related to seasonal, cyclical and structural trends, skills demand and supply, behavior and motivation of job seekers, and wage differences by gender, occupation and location.
