  • Print
Campus Report :
The2hourjob.com, the country's first job portal for women, has set out to harness the unutilized skill of professional women. The online platform was inaugurated by Telecom and ICT Minister Mustafa Jabbar on Sunday at the capital's Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC).
The2hourjob.com is a portal unveiling for women the window to offer professional services staying in home.
Inaugurating the platform, ICT minister Mustafa Jabbar said, "Thanks to the tech-revolution, the need for physical presence in the job place is becoming less important than before. The2hour job is a platform for women where physical presence is not needed. Here all that matters is the skill that empowers a woman. Regardless of the educational background, a woman can earn money and create their identities through their skills."
Sanjida Khandaker, the founder of The2hourjob.com, said, "A total of 1950 female professionals have registered under 47 service categories to serve different business houses, agency, individuals and e commerce and startup. We believe that this is a reliable platform for women to utilize their potential staying in home. Nevertheless, it will also help business outlets to get their job done at a remuneration they can afford to pay."
"Now women would be able to manage two different worlds with ease - the family they belong to and the profession they take up to have a financial footing. This will make them self-sufficient. They will live with their own professional identity. That they put their heart to family doesn't imply that they have to compromise on their career," she further said.
Leveraging ICT for Growth, Employment and Governance, Bangladesh Intellectual Property Forum, Unilever brand Vim, Woman and Ecommerce Association of Bangladesh, and Ogilvy partnered with The2hourjob.
Nusrat Khondaker, Brand Manager of Vim, said; "Now women from anywhere in the country can choose their convenient hours to log into this platform and do their job. These skills, which would otherwise be unutilized, put together, will contribute to the country's GDP greatly. Daily a Bangladeshi woman spends around 1 hour 45 minutes on an average to clean their utensils. It takes more time because they use ash or dishwash bars for cleaning. However, Vim liquid provides faster degreasing, freeing up women's time from daily chores so that they can work on fulfilling their dreams, become self-dependent and get more out of their life."
The launching ceremony graced by, among others, Mr. Sami Ahmed, component team leader, Leveraging ICT for Growth, Employment and Governance, Barrister Hamidul Mishbah, founder, Bangladesh Intellectual Property Forum, Nasima Akhter Nisha, Owner and Founder, Woman and Ecommerce Association of Bangladesh, Tina Jabeen, investment advisor, ICT division, Startup Bangladesh.
From blog writing website construction, audio and video support, research and analysis, programming and technology, professional and creative writing, business support to legal support all can be found on the same platform. Anyone can create an employer's account and post a job there. Professional women can register at http://www.the2hourjob.com/  The website allows the employers to pay the professionals through Master, VISA, and bkash.
