Internshala - an internship and online training platform based in Gurgaon - has launched a virtual recruitment fair in a bid to bridge the campus placement gap caused by the pandemic, connecting aspiring professionals from across the country with corporates.
The recruitment fair is offering over 350 job opportunities for freshers and more than 7,500 internship options for students in their final year. Eligible candidates can apply for the jobs and internships at the Internshala website till November 10.
The recruitment fair has roped in industry giants like Viacom India, Kotak Mahindra Bank, FirstCry, HCL, American Express and PhonePe among others. These companies will hire freshers and interns for entry-level jobs. A fixed stipend will be given at the end of the internship period.
The internships and job offerings will be for various profiles like content writing, user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design, human resources, business development, marketing, software development, web development, graphic design and so on.
Candidates with the required skills and interests can readily apply for these opportunities through the recruitment fair itself. The annual cost to company (CTC) package offered to each recruit will range between Rs 2.75 lakh and Rs 20 lakh.
Internshala founder and CEO Sarvesh Agarwal said, “During the pandemic, the placement scenario took a hit. One major reason behind this was that a lot of institutions were not able to host campus placements. Through this online recruitment fair, we aim to connect all the aspiring freshers from across the nation with employers. The online fair offers a platform for the recruitment community to hire, and for the students community to apply for jobs and internships from the safety of their homes.”
