By Palak Bhatia

In an endeavour to bring together interested candidates and recruiters looking for fresh talent, Ascent organised ‘Delhi JobStop’ at GuruHarkishanPublic School, New Delhi. The two-day event aimed at allowing candidates of various expertises to directly approach companies and find their dream jobs. 

With organisations like Tech Mahindra, MVN University, People Solutions, Anmol Biscuits, One Leaf, Mahagun Group, etc gracing the job fair, it attracted a footfall of nearly 1700 job seekers. Candidates could choose from various sectors like insurance, education, consultancy, FMCG, etc. There were profiles to fit both freshers as well as experienced applicants. The avenue provided a great interface between companies and candidates, thus allowing them to directly interact and form good relationships.

Navdeep Thandi, AVP – HR, HDFC Life, who was looking to hire people for sales’ profiles, shared why organisations find job fairs beneficial, “Job fairs are a good platform for recruiters to hire people in bulk. The process is economical for us and the large numbers allow faster closure. The event was well-organised, publicised and coordinated, which has allowed us to interact with a lot of new faces.”

Murti Sood, assistant manager – HR, Investors Clinic, tells us about their hiring experience at the job fair, “We have had a great response from people visiting the fair. The footfall is in large numbers; in fact, we had considered almost eighty candidates in the first few hours. What is unique about the fair is that we find people of various skills at the same place. We are planning to hire a number of candidates for sales and operations.”

The experience of the students and candidates was also enthusiastic. Alka, an MBA from MysoreUniversity shares, “The fair is a good opportunity for students to come face-to-face with various recruiters.”

Thus, this job fair proved to be a successful event indeed.
