In a recent round of funding, AccioJob, a startup that acts as a platform for campus hiring, has raised Rs. 1.25 Cr, led by Mehta Ventures.
The Gurgaon-based startup also saw interest from an already existing investor, Y Combinator, which is a renowned Silicon Valley-based startup accelerator.
About 20 colleges are using AccioJob and have been able to find jobs for more than 100 students in the three months. Yashwardhan Burad, CEO, AccioJob believes that as more colleges, companies, and students start building in-depth profiles on the platform, it will revamp the way first-time job seekers approach to job searches and how companies’ HR departments view college recruitment.
Currently, most of the campus recruitment is done manually which leaves a lot of room for error, according to Burad.
