Friends, Before starting with HelloMeets, we researched a lot.
In February 2015, we went back to the man cave and did some research on how to make people meet for tech hiring…2 months of tiring research, visiting colleges, connecting with startup employees on Linkedin, 36 cups of coffee and tossing paper into the bin countless times…So much so that my room was full of paper and I had to carve my way out.
We spoke to almost 100 startup founders across India and found that most of them like to personally meet the candidate before hiring.
Here’s what some of them said:
“I personally spend a lot of time in hiring and most of the times I take my decision in 5 minutes of meeting the candidates.” — Deepak Ravindran, Founder & CEO, Lookup“I always go out for a quick lunch with potential hires to understand them and whether they would fit in our culture.” — Varun Shoor, Founder & CEO, Kayako
After this we decided to come up with “HelloJobs” — a speed dating hiring event, where startups and startup ready selected talent gets to meet each other for 4 minutes each. There is no need of a Resume/JD. One gets to show their full potential in person.
So how’s it been getting hired WITHOUT A RESUME | CV:
Sakshi Pruthi | Product Analyst @ Sheroes
“ I met Sahiba at HelloJobs last year where HelloMeets connected me to some amazing Tech startups. HelloMeets connected me to Sheroes and i joined as Product Analyst. Thanks to HelloMeets for kickstarting my career on a high note. “Ankit Gupta | Design Head @ @BobbleApp
“HelloMeets Community is very helpful for professional networking. Thanks to this community, I got at call from a medium sized startup called Bobble, which turned out to be a life changing opportunity. I strongly recommend people to use HelloMeets as a platform to connect with professionals whom you won’t get a chance to meet otherwise.”
