Last year, a leading product MNC wanted to hire large number of fresher’s and approached us. Together, we devised a strategy of identifying over 500 campuses in 14 cities across the country. Around 30,000 candidates were screened and an assessment was conducted on a single day to recruit over 4,000 candidates. The project helped the corporate hire the desired number of candidates in a single day. Our ability to reach out to large number of campuses, conduct standardized and customised assessments in multiple cities simultaneously has been leveraged by our customers.
