Being an Engineering Graduate, Niraj Kumar had an Intense crave cum desirous for setting a gateway for young generation to help them incorporate a Successful Career.

Before Enlisting in Entrepreneurship, he always ponders… Why to do work 9 to 5… Literally no jobs now a days is 9 to 5… They are all 9 to 11 or even 12… So why not work diligently for yourself instead? But the Key cognition was that he was surrounded with propositions which he postulate would work. So you don’t want to end up being 40 and recall…

So, he decided to break ice and come out with a concept that will work wonders… for the youth and there is nothing better than education and recruitment Industry for doing so.

After big research he found that the Employment Scenario in India is getting grimmer every year…

At a glance of India, 17000+ colleges, 4 million+ students graduating every year, there are around 7lakh + private limited companies in India. Even though having a good degree in hand, these candidates are rendered helpless to get right job…

With more than a billion people around us, one can hardly argue that India’s strength has to be its human resource capability. However, a huge mismatch between employee skill-set and industry expectation leaves both parties unhappy. To be honest, most of the people in the country are not trained for industry and end up being tagged as unemployable. So, we thought why not take up this challenge and help people get better prepared for industry; while at the same time help start-ups and SMEs solve their biggest problem, raising a team. However, a huge mismatch between employee skill-set and industry expectation leaves both parties unhappy.

On one side of the market, we find people who are looking for work and benchmark their skill sets as per set standards. On the other side of the market, we find employers who are looking to hire. And then we simply act as matchmakers to help both parties meet their expectations.

Immediately after quitting the job, He started adding Companies, Colleges and Institution through Various mediums and also made eminent business acquaintances via social media like LinkedIn and Facebook.

After deep research of more than 3 year and strong relationship with colleges and companies covering more than 400+ colleges and 1500+ corporate reach…Niraj and his team came up with a new concept and denomination i.e “Freshersnews” .

At present he is having more than 10000+ Contacts on LinkedIn and around 94000+ members on Facebook group.

Even the Facebook group founded by Niraj and his team member Deeksha Srivastava who is handling entire HR operations of Freshersnews has crossed 94 k+  members in just a couple of months.

Through this group, they have successfully placed 140+ jobseekers in various client companies free of cost. Even they provide free career counselling and job updates and is one of the fastest growing social network groups of India being denominated as Freshersnews.co.in (A Platform for jobseekers across PAN India).

“Freshersnews” acts like a medium between corporate, College and Candidates”.

Freshersnews” provide job information through our website i.e. “www.freshersnews.co.in” and through various social media platform like Facebook and LinkedIn.

“Freshersnews” has a team of 4 people including Niraj, and utilizes most of the revenue generated from their campus drive, Job Fair and some amount from [FAT] i.e. Freshers Assessment Test.

Freshers Assessment Test [FAT] is an Entry Level Test Conducted by Freshersnews for Freshers Entry level Engineering Graduates to get placed in reputed MNC’s and SME’s across India. [FAT] is an Evaluation Test pioneered by Industry Experts to provide a platform for job seekers to get their first job in their dream company.

Based on their [FAT] score Candidates can judge their skill sets which are stronger or where they are lagging behind and according to their score and feedback report they can apply for our various Client Company.

In last 2 years. We have worked with more than 30 + companies including some of the Big MNC’s.

The main challenge we have faced in last 2 years is convincing the college management for campus drives as lots of consultants had already
spoiled the market of Education and recruitment industry. They had already decepted the colleges by charging huge commercial on sake of campus
drives, then either the companies were not genuine or they got vanished from the market after collecting their money.

Henceforth, Freshersnews came up with concept of FAT test so that companies will get pre-screened candidates as well as colleges will get a single platform where they can conduct test by just investing genuine money and getting lots of clients on behalf of Freshersnews. This results in establishing the brand value of our company as well as clients plus colleges.
