Contact Person – Chetan Thakre, CEO
Challenge: On the employment front Start-Up’s and SME’s both struggle with man power supply due to their ad-hoc requirements as well as longer hiring cycles. They also lack visibility or the HR resources to identify fresh talent in Universities and hence find it difficult to recruit correctly as per their needs. On the job seekers side, many students graduating from Universities in Tier 2- Tier 3 cities are left out of the employment race as bigger corporates tend to overlook them only hiring from more established institutes.
Innovation: The organization aims at bridging this gap between these fresher’s and Start-Ups/SME’s by bringing them together on one platform. Rankskills is the first online platform that connects youth from Tier 2- Tier 3 educational institutes to Start-Ups /SME’s. The portal not only provides visibility of jobs to candidates and profiles of students to SME’s but has also built in features to connect job seekers to mentors and skilling providers to help them improve other necessary professional skills. The organization is also in the process of building a telephony service aimed at helping students and youth to improve their communication skills thereby enhancing their employability.
