The Zigsaw plan forward for Udaipur

For Zigsaw, we have been a service centric recruitment consultancy but are slowly shifting our focus on the developing a community driven recruitment portal (Check out www.zigzobs.com). The salient features of the current portal include

  1. Claim your skills & self rate yourself on the claimed skills: You can select upto 7 skills in the system & self-rate yourself on these skills. We believe honest self-evaluation from each one would be the single biggest driver of our recruitment portal 2 years hence.
  2. Engage with your friends and rate them on their claimed skills: Like you, your friends would also claim their skills. Once they do that, you would be notified. We are trying to gamify skill ratings & would be including some incentives for sincere ratings very shortly.
  3. Each successful referral (referred friend gets selected) comes with a referral incentive of min 1000 Rs. Now this is a very aggressive step, given that recruitment consultancies in Udaipur have build a market charging from Job seekers. In our business model, we intend to reward the Job seekers who refer their friends. Like I said, we are building a community driven recruitment portal and are optimistic to receive support from the people of Udaipur

Thank you to the awesome people of Udaipur. People who have helped us reach their friends, your college mates. I am positive on getting continued support to reach your neighbor who is looking for a Job Change, the relative who returned from another city, your best buddy from school, the collegue who wants to quit, to reach the lady next door who quit her job after marriage!! Help us reach the lives where we can make a difference. Spread the word. Signing off:

Till the next time, #beZigsawed
