Winter Internship at Zigsaw

Success is to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are 3 crore Job-seekers and 30 Lakh jobs in India. As ironical as it may sound, there is not a single platform to connect them without If’s and but’s. I intend to

  1. Build the largest platform to curate all available Jobs in India. This will ensure that every deserving candidate is able to find the right Job.
  2. Build an open community where employers can post Jobs for FREE and Job-seekers can apply for Jobs without any charge.
  3. Enable entrepreneurs to hire talent in an easy & effecient process to help them successfully build their dreams.

Hi friends, I am Vaibhav from Zigsaw. I come from a middle class family and both my parents are retired teachers. I have always been taught to study hard so that I can have a secure Job. Things were going as planned and I tried to live upto my parents expectations. But things changed in 2008, when I got admitted to an alma mater that contributes 20 lakh Crore to the nations economy. Things changed when I got admitted to an IIT where on an average each graduate creates 100 Jobs in the country. Yes, when I graduated in 2012; I did not only want to only make it big for myself; I wanted to be a change maker in the society. I wanted to add value to the society. And Zigsaw is my contribution to make that small change in the society. I intend to hire interns for Zigsaw and I want people who could share my dream of creating an open community to connect Job-seekers with employers without ifs and buts and do so on volunteering basis.

We have been working in Udaipur from the last 2 years and let me share some numbers from Udaipur. Lets say, X is the biggest recruitment portal of India

  1. It is 35 times more likely to find the right talent in Udaipur through us, than through X.
  2. While X would have approx ~60 Jobs from Employers (recruiters excluded) in Udaipur, we have 250+ live Jobs at Zigsaw. Hence, it is 4 times more likely for Job-seekers for find their dream Job through Zigsaw, than through X
  3. While posting Job on X takes 1650 Rs./post, posting Job on www.zigsaw.in is FREE
  4. Our fb group(www.facebook.com/groups/jobs4udaipur) had 12.5k active members in the last 28 days (source:Facebook Group insights)

I want to replicate this over 100 cities in the next 6 months and I am looking to 250 interns to do so with me.

I have a dream. A dream to connect the 3 crore Job seekers to the 30 Lakh Jobs. I do not want to create a Billion Dollar Company, I want to create a Billion people company. I am here because I believe YOU can help me in my journey, to help me achieve the goal that appears impossible in hindsight. I am not saying it would be easy. I am here because I believe in YOU and I strongly believe that together we can achieve this.

5 years down the line, I would like to build a game for recruitment. Something very similar to Clash of Clans; the only difference being when you win here, either you get yourself a Job or get your friend placed. Imagine you have your own team; you have your superheroes and you have your mission of finding the right Job for the right guy. Here you collaborate with your friends to build a perfect team and achieve a collective goal. You have a real life challenge which when you solve would ease somebody’s life. I am here to ask if you could share my dream.
