HireMee signs MoU with AICTE to bridge ‘recruiter-student’ gap

New Delhi, Sep 13 (UNI) HireMee, a web portal and mobile application, joined hands with All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) to connect thousands of recruiters with tens of thousands of students spread across mini metros and deep interiors of the country with the first of its kind skill testing recruitment platform.
Under the agreement HireMee will provide its unique 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.
On the tie-up, Dr Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman of AICTE, said, “HireMee is a dream come true 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.”
Commenting on it, 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 other 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,” he said.
HireMee conducts free skill assessments for students by giving them a 7-digit score that goes into their pre-assessed profiles. Students can upload their video profiles through the mobile app. These two features provide the recruiter with a detailed analytics of each candidate. The employers can then shortlist candidates directly from the HireMee website or mobile app.
Mr Chocko Valliappa added, “We aspire to conduct one million job assessments in 2017-18 so as to generate 100,000 jobs by 2018 end. The MOU with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will help us move a step ahead and help us bridge the “recruiter-student” gap.
HireMee, a social enterprise of Vee Technologies, a Bengaluru and New York based strategic services company, grooms and channelizes the young minds to achieve their career dreams and helps the recruiters get pre-assessed candidates.
Since opportunities for campus placement in Tier-2 and Tier 3 cities are limited the students have to hunt for job often ending up with one that is ill-suited to them. HireMee aspires to connect millions of students across India with a wide range of recruiting companies.
