“We are thrilled to launch the third edition of Aspire this year,” said Sekhar Garisa, CEO of foundit (previously Monster APAC & ME),In a job market that is evolving rapidly, we aim to bridge the gap between recruiters and job seekers via career fairs such as Aspire. This aids our objective of leveraging advanced technology to ensure a perfect match between seekers and opportunities.

One of the biggest pain points of fresher recruitment in India is the mismatch in what the talent pool seeks and what an employer is ready to offer in the job market, which occurs when the skills possessed by job candidates do not align with the skills required by employers for a particular role. The hiring cost involved in attracting and retaining qualified candidates creates a volatile market for recruiters, making it tricky to navigate. 

To address these challenges, foundit also offers skill assessments. This innovative feature allows candidates to undergo highly focussed, gamified tests and helps candidates earn badges to enhances their visibility and significantly increases their chances of getting hired. By identifying skilled candidates and promoting upskilling, Aspire connects young talent with the perfect opportunities and sets them on the path to long-term success.
