Recruiting firm Careernet’s CEO and Co-founder Anshuman Das says Covid-19 showed companies that remote, online hiring could be efficient, cost-saving and done at scale. He gives the example of a leading IT major, which used to hire 18,000-20,000 freshers from 500 campuses over nine months. “In one project that we were working with them, we were able to hire 25,000 from 700 campuses in 25 days,” he says. Once that trust was earned, technology started getting built into other HR functions as well, he adds. “Overall cost of hiring goes down because of lack of travel, and companies are spending that money on these platforms.”
Please note that Careernet does not practice charging a placement fee from any job seeker across profiles. Word of caution to the fraudulent news and information, if anyone demands any kind of charges from you, in the name of Careernet Consulting.
