How we jumped into entrepreneurship with cajobportal.com
As Anurag interacted with CA freshers during his GMCS sessions, he found that was a major pain point for these young and enthusiastic professionals. Since they were either not suave when it came to communication skills or were not well connected, they struggled to have their profiles considered by the relevant companies. That was when the idea of a dedicated portal for Chartered Accountants struck him. So, in Aug’13, we launched cajobportal.com as India's first recruitment website exclusively for finance professionals [CA,CS,CWA & MBA]
Through our start up, we took commoditization in the finance human capital space head-on, adding value through segmentation and customisation.”
What works to our advantage is that each of our recruiters is a CA/MBA. So they would engage with prospects around technical terms like IFRS, GST and Derivatives, instead of just the cliched CTC, location and notice period.
What's more is our ability to leverage our internal database as well as the daily traffic on cajobportal.com to target active job-seekers for your open positions and thus deliver quick turnaround times
All this comes at a cost which will be lower than the industry benchmark
To make a point, cajobportal.com is now trusted by marquee brands across sectors which include the top 50% of BSE-30 companies as well. These include the likes of Unilever, P&G, Asian Paints, Pepsi,Cipla, Roche, Wipro, HDFC, Goldman Sachs and Fullerton Credit
We recently crossed the milestone of Billable CTC of INR 10 cr across clients
We operate as an all women ‘Work from Home’ setup – girls, in different parts of the country, who, need to stay at home and work in trust on their cloud based collaborative platform.
