HireMee and AICTE collaborate to bridge the recruiter-student gap in India
The MoU was signed in New Delhi recently.
Under the agreement HireMee will provide its placement solution to students of colleges and institutions affiliated to AICTE. The Council will, in turn, support HireMee to expand the scope of its portal and app by helping expand its reach among AICTE accredited institutions.
Dr Anil D. Sahasrabudhe, Chairman of AICTE, said, “HireMee is an app for the youth looking for jobs. By locating the right candidate for a job, HireMee will not only bridge the “recruiter-student” gap but will also contribute to employment generation in the country especially the rural literate population. The MOU was vetted by AICTE teams to assess its value to the student community.”
Chocko Valliappa, Founder, HireMee said, “We aim to flip the current recruitment model where most recruiters work on tight budget visiting only a handful of top ranked institutes in the respective field for campus placement. Students from lesser known and far off institutes are left out of the campus placement. We have lots of brilliant students in these institutes and we want all of them to realize their potential to the fullest. HireMee does not charge students for accessing its portal and app and at the same time ensure that they get jobs commensurate with their skills and capabilities.”
HireMee will conduct free skill assessments for students by giving them a 7-digit score which will go into their pre-assessed profiles. Students will be able to upload their video profiles through the mobile app. The recruiter can consult both features for a detailed analysis of each candidate. The employers can then shortlist candidates directly from the HireMee website or mobile app.
Valliappa said, “We aspire to conduct one million job assessments in 2017-18 so as to generate 100,000 jobs by 2018 end."
HireMee is a social enterprise of Vee Technologies, a Bengaluru- and New York-based strategic services company.
