“Most of the entry-level hiring is done through campus recruitments. Job portals play a very peripheral role in it. FirstNaukri.com will try to help colleges create more value for their students,” Ambarish Raghuvanshi, CFO, Info Edge India, has said. [Source: Financial Express ]

Update

Rajiv Dingra, who had launched Jobs4Freshers.com which was in existence for one and half years before it was shut down in 2006, has listed some pain points of running a job site for freshers. Here is the edited version of the pain points originally posted on WATBlog :

1) More often than not most companies get inundated with fresher resumes the moment they are about to pass third year. So essentially employers have little or no value for freshers resumes.

2) Pain Point is at the freshers end (some of them don’t even know how to write a good resume) but they have no payment capacity beyond say Rs 500/1000 and most of them won’t have credit cards so even if you plan to charge them Rs 500 there is no cost effective way of collecting the same.

3) Freshers don’t remain freshers once they get a job. Redundant database is what this space suffers from… Also most freshers would ideally like to complete a year or two before quitting their first jobs as it “looks good” on their resumes.
