In a bid to reduce the rising rate of youth unemployment in Africa, Job Xpress – a new internet-free SMS-based job application app has been launched by ForgetmeNot Africa.

The app allows mobile subscribers to send their resumes and job applications via phone regardless of the model.

According to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) recent report on unemployment in Africa, about 40 million African youths are currently unemployed; about 60 percent of the continent’s unemployed demography.
