HireMee to assess graduating students at Professional, Arts and Science Colleges in Tamil Nadu

Published in Education Saturday, 25 November 2017 15:48


HireMee, an initiative for social good, will conduct the assessment of final-year students in Tamil Nadu following the signing of an MoU with the Consortium of Self Financing Professional, Arts and Science Colleges. The Consortium, with over 500 member institutions, works towards improving the quality of engineering education in the State.

The assessments, to be provided at no cost to the students or colleges, by HireMee, a web portal and mobile application, will connect the corporate world with academic institutions for faster and easier placements across India. The HireMee app seamlessly links students, recruiters and colleges through proctored computer-based assessments to facilitate the recruitment process. With a special focus on fresh graduates, especially from tier II and III towns, and urban areas, HireMee will bridge the gap between recruiters and students.

The MoU was signed by Mr Chockalingam Valliappa, Founder of HireMee and the Consortium President Mr R S Munirathinam in the presence of Secretary Dr P. Selvaraaj, Vice Presidents Mr Nanjil M. Vincent, Dr. S. Peter and Prof. A Balathandayuthapani and executive committee members last week.

“As part of our CSR effort HireMee will offer an optional opportunity to the all students by connecting them to the right jobs. The goal is to help recruiting firms discover diamonds among students in rural and urban colleges without any cost to the students, recruiters or the colleges,” says Chockalingam Valliappa, Founder, HireMee.

HireMee teams will administer a 100-minute proctored computer-based test for students at the college premises using its proprietary application. This will enable students to identify improvement areas, bridge skill gaps and further their employability,” adds Valliappa.

As part of the agreement, the Consortium will support HireMee in extending its services to its over 500 affiliated institutions by increasing awareness about HireMee among the student community.

“By offering free assessment to a million students and pro bono recruiting services to 1,000 companies this year HireMee aspires to enable students to get 100,000 jobs this year,” says Krishnan Kuppusamy, Chief Advisor, HireMee.

HireMee entered into a MoU with country’s leading accrediting body, AICTE to offer its web and mobile application to graduating students of over 11,000 AICTE accredited institutions in the country in September 2017. In early November, HireMee signed a similar MoU with India’s leading engineering university Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). HireMee plans to administer a million assessments to graduating students in tens of thousands of institutions by 2018.

About HireMee

An initiative for social good, HireMee brings scale to the jobs arena, helping graduating students find jobs that fit them and helping companies widen the net for talent search to hire the right candidate.

HireMee aspires to complete deep and detailed assessment of a million final year graduating college students pursuing degree or diploma in engineering, humanities, sciences, and commerce and business management. On its platform, HireMee brings the results to the very doorstep of recruiters.

Realising that most recruiters end up hiring candidates from the top city colleges leaving out a large number of bright students from lesser known ones in smaller cities and towns, HireMee closes that gap.

The start-up is the brainchild of Valliappa Chockalingam, a fourth-generation entrepreneur and CEO of Vee Technologies, a firm that handles the growing medical billing and insurance payer services for the US healthcare industry.

HireMee is a CSR initiative of Vee Technologies part of the Sona Valliappa Group continuing its six decades of philanthropic activity in education.

What makes HireMee unique is that there is a special focus on reaching candidates in deep interiors of the country. The industry is missing many of the rural ‘diamonds’ as the reach to remote parts of the country is just not easy.
