How during this COVID-19 pandemic, THE SEEKERS, INC is providing jobs in several companies?
Community-based provision of jobs are now a thing, and The Seekers INC is using it effectively during this pandemic
The COVID-19 has changed the world--It has killed millions of people, butchered economies, derailed the whole dynamics of businesses, and above all, instilled an everlasting trauma amongst masses.
But thinking from a damage standpoint, after healthcare, employment demographics have taken a huge dip. Millions of people are out of jobs, cash flow is shredded by big numbers and industries have no option other than to enforce recession.
From what it seems, we are living an apocalyptic documentary movie. But during these times, there are people and companies that are working to restore the balance in the economy. The Seekers INC is one such organization that is working through all clock hours, to ensure freshers and professionals meet their right employer. How? Through a community-driven network run only through referrals and authentic resources.
But what is The Seekers INC, doing, that Naukri and Linkedin aren’t doing already?
It’s true that Linkedin is a powerhouse social network, but within the last 18 months, and especially during the COVID period, a lot of fake profiles, and saturation of database has been reported. Here are the active issues-
- Repetitive job postings
- Unresponsive recruiters
- Overflow of applications
- Fake consultants seeking commercial benefits in exchange for jobs
- Unverified job listings from fraudulent startups
It’s a fact that Linkedin has been looked upon for great results, but with this digital inflation, these results are delayed and most certainly unvalidated. On the other hand, portals like Naukri has now been a source for only recruitments agencies who seek money from young aspirants.
Adding to these frustrations of any employment seekers, COVID-19 has changed the whole dynamics of employments and has registered a long term impact on freshers, and professionals.
It is now quite evident that jobs, that don’t add value to businesses will perish. And as a matter of fact, the gig economy will see mainstream adoption. Let’s have a look at the changes that COVID will bring-
- Fresh graduates will now be expected to come prepared and learn by themselves
- Fitment will control qualifications--HRs will now have a renewed focus to hire people with the right attitude who are active self-learners themselves.
- E-learning and reskilling based programs will be more advertised, meaning remote-based opportunities will increase further unleashing a whole new scope of employments for young aspirants.
- Job accountability will increase, which means that salary correctness will be a highlight until a few months into 2021.
Consequently, options will now be limited, and which is where exactly this young startup, The Seekers INC are working. The Seekers INC. is a recruitment consulting firm that functions as a social market place for young aspirants who are looking for opportunities especially in the management area.
