At a time when recruitment was hit hard by the pandemic, emergence of a new platform has rekindled hopes of hundreds of job aspirants in Kerala. In a first-of-its-kind initiative, a virtual campus drive, offered by talent acquisition startup FutureMug, drew a record participation of over 1500 students from 25 colleges across Kerala.
FutureMug hosted the virtual drive where major companies joined to interact and identify eligible students for placement. As the conventional model of recruitment drive became impossible due to the pandemic, FutureMug offered their platform and managed the entire event. The virtual drive hosted educational institutions ranging from premier engineering colleges to arts colleges to match the expectations of the companies.
Addressing the colleges, Futuremug COO Ms. Sneha Sivalakshmi said that FutureMug not only evaluated the aptitude and analytical skills of the candidates, but various other aspects like soft skills. “We have AI integrated psychometric analysis tools, over 200 technology and coding assessments which are proctored and cheat protected, one way video interview and digital portfolio creator which help the companies as well as candidates to measure their employability in the present market and understand the gap and improve themselves for the job market,” She said.
HR representative of Innovature Labs, Ms Shehersada Kader, opined that the FutureMug reduced the amount of time they spend on campuses. “The platform allows us to compare applicant responses from various campuses across Kerala. The technology questions are spot on and allow us a lot of flexibility to customize and add our own questions. It is our go-to tool for tech hiring. It helps us in doing the first round of screening and makes the hiring process easier. Their customer service was awesome and they were flexible to customize the application based on our requirement. FutureMug is a smart solution for campus recruitment,” he said
Campus placement Officer, CEK, Mr Syamesh K G said, “organising recruitment drives in the campus used to be a tedious task which takes months long planning along with utilizing bulk manpower for all the operational activities. This year, FutureMug took over all the activities and it was a cake walk for the faculties as well as students.”
