NAIROBI， March 28 (Xinhua) -- Kilimall， one of the largest online retail firms in Kenya， plans to enlarge its footprint in the East African nation known for its vibrant e-commerce， the company said Tuesday.
Victor Ma， Managing Director of Kilimall Kenya， said his company intends to expand operations in rural parts of the country while diversifying products sold on its online platforms in order to stay afloat amid fierce competition.
"We are positioning ourselves to reap from the gains of a rapidly expanding online retail market in Kenya by diversifying products range and geographical reach，" Ma said at a media briefing in Nairobi.
Kilimall has provided an online market place for electronic goods， home appliances and clothes since its launch in Kenya two and a half years ago.
Ma said the company intends to focus on locally made products in future while expanding its presence in rural towns， where internet connectivity has improved.
Kenya has one of the most vibrant e-commerce sector in sub-Saharan Africa thanks to friendly regulations and higher internet connectivity.
An internal survey conducted by Kilimall between September to November 2016 indicated that 37 percent of Nairobi residents purchased goods through online platforms.
Ma however said that frequent power outages and erratic internet connection in small towns have inhibited growth of Kenya's e-commerce sector.
Meanwhile， Kilimall said it had put in place deterrent measures to curb proliferation of counterfeit products on its online platforms.
Gladys Liu， Marketing Manager at Kilimall Kenya， said the company had been coordinating directly with products' manufacturers to detect and weed out sub-standard goods.
CHICAGO, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- New research from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business finds that employers accept and process applications in batches: they post vacancies and accept applications for merely nine days on average in technology-oriented sectors, and it takes 45 days on average to fill one of these job positions.
This is contrary to one's imagination that hiring is a sequential search process: employers receive an application Cheap Nike Air Force 1 , screen and interview the candidate, and then make an offer or wait for the next applicant.
The researchers built the new U.S. database linking 66 million applications to nearly 8 million online job postings since January 2012, and found that the vacancy posting phase is much shorter than the screening and recruitment phase in the hiring process.
The study also finds that "recruitment firms Nike Air Force 1 Sale ," which solicit applicants for third parties, and "staffing firms," which hire employees for lease to other firms Nike Air Force 1 Shoes , account for 74 percent of vacancy postings and attract 60 percent of the applications.
Many new hires don't get the job by contacting the employer directly. Instead, they get the job through labor market intermediaries, which play a huge role in the hiring process for technology-oriented jobs.
Other findings include: Job seekers prefer new job postings Nike Air Force 1 Wheat , with 39 percent of applications flowing to jobs posted in the past 48 hours and 54 percent flowing to ones posted in the past 96 hours; Workers apply for jobs early in the week, with applications per posting about 45 percent higher on Mondays and Tuesdays than on Fridays and four times higher than on Saturdays; Job-seeking activity slacks off during the December holidays and rebounds in the new year.
Statistics show that applications usually fall by 30 percent in December compared to October and jump by 60 percent in January.
This is one of the first large-scale studies to exploit matched data on vacancy postings and application flows to characterize the hiring process and quantify movements in labor market tightness.
