M-tel’s subscribers are already receiving information for job vacancies and can apply for them directly via SMS. The service is developed together with www.JobTiger.bg - one of the most popular Internet sites for recruiting. This service gives M-tel’s subscribers the advantage to be informed about a new job opening just minutes after its activation and to apply for it via SMS if he/she wants to.

Information received is free of charge. The subscriber can ask via SMS for additional information concerning the stated job opening, or if he/she decides to apply – immediately to declare this from his/her GSM handset at the price of one standard SMS. In the message sent the subscriber can even state which one of his/her CVs in JobTiger to be used for application for the respective job opening.
