Gazabjobs is an amalgamation of people, process and technology, three major pillars for progress and subsistence of any business.
Speaking on the occasion, Dhiraj Ahuja, CEO Skillskonnect said, “We have a vision of becoming India’s first company that will digitally empower the training institutes, colleges and job consultancies, which influences millions of youth to join the workforce of the country and can play a significant role in improving their career and life. The business idea originated from the fact that millions of trained & educated youth, passing out of the training institutes and colleges, find themselves without a suitable job due to lack of proper guidance to search and apply for jobs. Majority of such training institutes and colleges, are still not digitalized when it comes to placing their students and help them manage their career progression once they are out from the training institutes and colleges. Skillskonnect sees a big opportunity here by digitalising them using Gazabjobs”

Besides offering jobs, it also allows its retail partners to attract new admissions & job seekers, build their personalized digital brands and scale up their business. The data that gets generated in the back, on job seekers and their employment details, will be continuously upgraded and mined using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to draw never before insights on blue & grey collar jobs market and undertake timely engagements with job seekers for relevant offers on training, jobs, financial support, insurance products, through the career life cycle of a job seeker.
