Bengaluru headquartered IT talent and assessment startup HireMee has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Labour and Employment’s National Career Service (NCS) to offer comprehensive assessment services to jobseekers registered on the portal.

Venkatraman Umakanth, Business Head and Sr Vice President, HireMee and Amit Nirmal, Deputy Director General (Employment) signed the MoU at an event attended by Arti Ahuja, Secretary Ministry of Labour and Employment and Mr Ramesh Krishnamurthi, Additional Secretary (Labour and Employment).

HireMee will deploy its competence in offering a 100-minute assessment test that enhances employability of the youth.

The facility will help jobseekers to self-assess their suitability for a job through aptitude test being offered free of cost.

The candidates can also upload 3 video profiles of 20 seconds each, to garner employer’s attention.

The employers too will benefit from this association as they can view the scores of aptitude tests and easily do the first level of scrutiny of potential candidates thereby cutting down selection time.

At an event organised at New Delhi it emerged that the Ministry of Labour and Employment views this partnership from the perspective of the jobseekers of the country that may spur future partnerships between various government and private organizations to help NCS to serve the interests of both job seekers and employers better.

Startup HireMee, that took birth as a social enterprise envisioned India “where no talent is unemployed or underemployed”, offers equal access to job opportunities for youth from small towns by connecting them with companies, big and small, that value diversity and inclusivity.

HireMee provides artificial intelligence (AI) proctored assessments covering 7 sections including core domains for students pursuing their diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.  The assessment scores of test takers are shared with companies that are listed on HireMee platform without any fee.

By working closely with AICTE, National Career Services (NCS), NASSCOM and a few Indian states HireMee platform has helped over 630,000 students get themselves assessed with over 225,000 students getting the opportunity to be considered for jobs in companies.

Today more than 2000 companies get access to a wider pool of pre-assessed talent from across India readily and at no cost.

“As a founder who sought to help companies discover diamonds from small towns, I am gratified that 57 per cent of the job opportunities came to youth from tier-3 and tier-4 towns and nearly half—45 per cent -- of these opportunities were for girl candidates,” says HireMee founder and CEO Chocko Valliappa.

The ‘Made in India’ HireMee emerged among the 5 finalists in the prestigious $5 million XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling competition in the USA in 2022 becoming the only non-American entry to make it to this list.
