We spoke with the CA Saksham Agarwal, MD of Jobaaj.com. Here are few excerpts.
How will Jobaaj.com benefit students of Eshan Group directly & indirectly?
“Recruitment sector has massive potential which is a ₹15,000 crore market itself, therefore being in the hiring business from a long time Jobaaj.com itself will provide a lot of opportunities to the students of Eshan Group directly.
Also, Jobaaj.com has a number of hiring partners/clients all over India who are always in search of the right talent for their niche profiles. This collaboration will not only bridge the gap between the talent & opportunities but will also give Jobaaj a chance to train the students as per the industry demand since day 1 of their respective curriculum”.
What’s the role of Jobaaj Learnings in this collaboration?
“With the Pandemic having reasserted the compelling need of having specialised skills that may give an individual the required edge to be able to compete in an unstable economy which has just recently gone through a big recession along with high layoff rates, It is much needed than ever to create additional skills among the students which can provide them the edge over others. Jobaaj Learnings, our Edutech arm, being handled by very experienced professors from different universities will definitely fulfil this need of Eshan Group”.
How is business during COVID?
“For Jobaaj.com, Hiring was quite less in the Q1 & Q2 of FY 20-21, rather there were a high number of lay-offs & salary cuts by our hiring partners/clients and hence our revenues were 60% less compared to the same quarters previous year. But recently the business has picked up at a pace which was much better than what was expected in Q3 & we are now looking for even better numbers in the Q4”.
What could be the reason for such a rebound?
“The high amount of layoffs in the Q1 & Q2 and with world economies coming back on track at a high speed, the firms have started hiring in order to bridge the gap, this can be considered as the main reasons.”
How is your new venture Jobaaj Learnings progressing?
“The response for our courses has been extremely motivating mainly due to the recent Edutech boom and the fear among the jobseekers of losing their jobs that has forced them to look for additional skills. We have seen almost a 100% growth in the revenues in Q3 compared to the previous quarter.”
Which courses have been in high demand?
“All the courses but especially our stock market & python course.
There were 24 lakh Demat accounts opened up in the lockdown i.e. between April’20 to June’20 which can be due to the sharp rebound in the Indian markets from its March lows and people were looking to earn quick bucks and also because in the lockdown many people lost their jobs and were looking for a second source of income.
This was the major reason for the demand of our stock market courses which are from the very basic to advance level.
Also, demand for our tech side courses like python has also increased due to the high demand in the IT industry after everyone shifted from offline to online mode.
We have also received heavy interest from the students for our upcoming courses on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for trading/investing. We believe that this is the future of trading/investing in India, advanced economies like the US have already adopted this on a large scale but India is still far behind.
This combination of technology & trading is explosive & will create numerous job opportunities in the future.”
Is your company looking for funding?
“We have been a self-funded company for the past 2 years. As of now, we do not feel the need for funding and we believe that our clients are our investors and therefore we are always working hard to give them our best.
We are very thankful to the Eshan Group for this collaboration and we believe that in coming years we will grow leaps & bounds together.”
