HT Media Company’s job portal venture, Shine.com, plans to acquire a pan-India footprint by opening more branches and will be ramping up its headcount by at least a 100 by end-2009, a top company official said.

Shine.com is a part of Firefly e-Ventures, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hindustan Times group.

“We began operations in June last year and are still growing and expanding. Presently, we have a headcount of 200 people which we plan to scale-up to 300 by end-December,” Firefly e-Ventures Ltd’s National Sales and Operations Head, Sohail Razzack, said at a conference here.

The Gurgaon-headquartered company has eight offices in the major metros of the country and plans to open four more this year in a bid to acquire a pan-India presence, he said.

Shine.com adds 7,000 resumes per day and has 1.7 million Curriculum Vitaes (CVs) posted on its portal presently, Razzack said, adding that these are relatively more updated CVs as compared to its peers.

“Our target is to capture at least five per cent of the job portal market by December-end,” Razzack said.

The company is also planning overseas forays in the coming years, he said.

“We hope to close with about Rs six and seven crore worth of order bookings by March-end,” he said.
