8th and 9th December 2007, Palace Grounds was found to be full of “eyes” searching for opportunities in various IT Companies of Silicon City and Abroad.
Naukri job fair provided a stage to those who wanted to hunt the talents as well as the desperate candidates searching the right place to show off their talent and grab a dream job. There were around 79 companies ready by 8 AM in the morning to help the 16000 candidates rushed in on the first day to knock the door of their future.
The job fair was well organized with more than 100 volunteers from Naukri, though there were some minor issues with the test centres, cafeteria arrangements and toilets on the first day…
I represented my company’s stall in order to find those who are interested in “OpenSource” and “System Administration” profiles. To my knowledge there are couple of more companies and consultants offering jobs to these profiles at the venue. It had taken a lot of effort for my team to setup the stall to look alike any other big companies as it was our first JobFair since our companies inception.
“Hack the opportunity, the OpenSource way!!!” was on our banner to grab the attention of the job aspirants. We did find many candidates interested in Linux but many were found to be unaware of the same. Interesting thing is, there were very few experienced candidates searching for new job in this field. Does it mean there is a job security in this field?
The job fair gave us an opportunity to build little brand value for our company and also gave us an opportunity to share little knowledge about “Webhosting Industry”, “OpenSource”, “Linux” “Job Opportunities for System Administrators”. “Domain knowledge – grab it when you work with OpenSource” this was found to be one of the keys to open up new areas to Freshers.
Looking forward to those who really hacks in to our company, they are going to be Linux Tux’s for sure in few months
