Companies now recruiting and building Talent Pool of Students at Youth4work
How do we filter the right talent from 99.6 lacs college goers in India ? How do we get trained resources for the jobs? How do we effectively use the potential of youth?
To recruit an engineer an HR has to typically answer the following issue- With more than 3 lacs engineer churning out each year in India, how can a HR find the right person for a specific role?
With more than 27 lacs graduates passed out in 2010 and increasing each year , the increasing variety of courses and qualifications and the bigger challenge of understanding the ‘Real’ preference of youth “for work”, the need of hour is a better eco system for actual experiencing, engaging & evaluation of youth.
Thus, increasing no. of companies are relying on www.Youth4work.com to engage youth and are building their own community for hiring later on.
The companies can now ‘Experience’ youth for work by giving them freelance projects to work on and gauge their caliber. The actual work done by a youth is the best mechanism to evaluate the true potential and is being effectively used by companies like Microsoft at Youth4work.
‘We wanted to find the right person who could make 3D event designs, we simply posted a project at youth4work and got youth submitting their work as per our requirement. Making a choice from multiple submissions and knowing the quality and capability of the person was easy. Kudos to y4w to create such a beautiful concept a reality.’ says Prafful Poddar of Culture Shock Event Management.
‘Engaging’ youth is more than just simple ads, spend in today’s social and more active world but has a more deeper meaning and understanding required. Youth in colleges are increasingly opting for work of their preference rather than just a company name tag. They want to be more informed and are more decisive in making their career choice. For companies it is increasingly hard to retain this quality work hungry generation of youth, who willingly shuffle jobs and companies to find their true calling. Thus, disseminating knowledge about their companies, interacting and building a brand reputation amongst youth and healthy free social interaction are increasingly transforming companies to use social recruitment and Community building.
Youth4work allows companies to tap into youth4work’s current reach of more than 176 colleges across India and help them in building their personal Talent Communities.
‘The ease of sorting managing and interacting with your talent community at youth4work is making it our choice for complete early recruitment management, Also the applications and profiles once following always remain easily accessible and creates our own rich database for repeat use.’ says Ayush, Jagbros Consultants Pvt. Ltd.
‘With over 1900 users registered 169 colleges and over 171 companies using youth4work in just 5 months of its beta launch, this is a very small measure of the true potential and need of youth4work. The public profiles of students are not only a simple resume but based on their performance and work experience before they even start their real jobs. The freelancing potential of the youth in India is over Rs. 23,283 Cr/year, and this market is still untapped.’ Says Rachit Jain, Founder, www.youth4work.com
