What are you going to do? The first question you have to face after your graduation or even in your final year. If you get placement in your campus then you are lucky I say more than talented if you are not then the rest may be difficult.
As of data emerging from 2011 census Ten million Indians with graduate, post-graduate and technical degrees are looking for job which means 15% of all Indians with the highest level of education. So it’s not only you but many.
One of the reasons behind is there is a gap between Corporate expectations and your college learnings we need to find and fill the gap so here comes the Chennai based emerging start-up first.jobs to fill the gap founded by College Of Engineering ,Guindy alumni AJ BalaSubramanian and PR Madhan. SocialTalky fired few question about first.jobs got an interesting and excellent reply from them.
First.jobs’ mission is to help fresh graduates secure their first job and serve recruiters to find fresh talent. “First Jobs – Fresh Talent” is our mantra.We do this by making it easy for all the stakeholders, the candidate, the college and the company.We aggregate profiles, jobs, assess candidates, alert with job offers, streamline communication between candidates and recruiters. Our audacious goal is to become the first place for first job.
What inspired you to start this initiative?
Madhan and I ( A J Balasubramanian) co-founders of Techruit Technologies, have been working in this space for over a decade.We have identified the problems in finding fresh talent and finding right jobs. Our analysis shows that this is a major pain point for most of the companies and all the candidates.
Behind our mission is a social cause. Our business is a social venture with profit resulting from the value and service we provide to our stakeholders.
What makes you stand unique from your competitors, what is special in you?
Unlike others in this space, we are not just after the top cream. Our studies show that the bulk of the requirement for candidates and jobs are in the middle of the Pyramid. The top performers are being chased by all and they don’t have problems in getting jobs. When you move to the middle, there are many problems due to the complex matching process involved.
In fact the problem is due to the various criteria one applies for finding and selecting a candidate as well as the candidate accepting a job subject to many criteria.
In most cases, the selection process is complex for both the candidates and recruiters. We are also very clear that we cannot charge big fees from our stakeholders. Like most of the problems that we have in India, for our service to be successful, it has to be of great value, easy to use and it should be priced very low.
The Candidates who are searching for job are struggling without income. We have to be sensitive to this. We don’t want our candidates to spend lots of money and effort.
Imagine, if someone has to travel to different cities and attend many interviews at distant locations, the cost and effort that goes in to this.
Our goal is to reduce that. Eventually, we would like to make it very easy for the stakeholders to connect, apply, evaluate, match and recruit easily. We have developed a cloud mobile application to solve this issue. We have many features being added through continuous feedback and development.
Why people should try you?
People, especially recruiters should try for the following reasons a. They can save their time and effort, in identifying talents, evaluating with (online our test engine)
b. They can manage the recruitment process – filter, communicate with the candidates with SMS, emails, Mobile push notifications
c. They would save lots of efforts and time.
d. this is particularly very useful for growing companies, who may not have human resources and infrastructure. This system helps them to identify the right talent without spending lots of money or effort.
Candidates should try our services because
a. They can manage the entire process from a single point, easily
b. They would never miss an opportunity, they would be getting alert 24 x 7 through mobile app. No need to login and check spam folders.
c. They would save time, effort and money in communicating and locating
d. Candidates would get alerts based on their preference, which helps them to filter unwanted things and increases the chance for their fitment.
e. our analytics would also give realistic picture to the candidates about their rating and prospects so that they can focus on succeeding.
Plans on future first.jobs
Our plan is to become the destination for first job and fresh talent and we would like to enrol about 5 million candidate profile every year and help them secure their first job by working with various types of job providers. We want to integrate with maps etc. leverage the system to share information with other stakeholders and help Placement officers and recruiting companies for managing campus drives, as well as pooled and open freshers drive, in which case companies can conduct drives with specific profiles of students in specific geography and demography.
We would become a robust clearing house for first job and fresh talent.
We would increase the thickness of our market place with more and more profiles and companies, we would also make sure our data is of best quality validated and rated, we would also make it easy for conducting business, we would also reduce congestion which often starts when markets become thick. Right now we have started our operations in Tamilnadu and South. We want to go National and go Global.
We are actively talking to a few angel investors. So far, we have bootstrapped with our own investment and internal cash flow. If we can get additional funding, we can scale rapidly. This is a very important problem to be solved, if we want Indian youths to get what they deserve. For every company which sells a product, the important thing that they all must realize is that we need people who can earn. We are creating the customers for the rest of the industry, he added.
Hope this need of the hour start-up will help the fresher to start his life.
