An online initiative by education consultancy, Trichy Plus, trichyvelai.com with the tagline ‘the right place to get settled locally’ seeks to make job hunting a hassle–free experience

Job seekers desirous of settling down in the city and employers hunting for local talent now have a common gateway to identify suitable employment and candidates, thanks to trichyvelai.com, an online city-based job portal, launched recently.

An online initiative by education consultancy, Trichy Plus, trichyvelai.com with the tagline ‘the right place to get settled locally’ seeks to make job hunting a hassle–free experience for youth by allowing them to register and upload resumes for free, said Sivakumar, director, Trichy Plus. “Simultaneously the initiative will help employers who do not know where to seek local talent, identify prospective candidates.” While registration is free for job seekers, firms would be charged on a nominal basis depending on the screening and selection.

The website has separate sections devoted to job seekers and employers. The former can zero in on suitable positions through a search function that filters jobs according to industry, work experience, expected salary and job function.

The latter can view profiles and select candidates before summoning prospective ones. Hot vacancies are also displayed. To generate response from employers and job seekers, the initiative is networking with placement officers in colleges and various companies including banks, BPOs, retail stores, firms, manufacturing industries, schools and colleges. Though the portal is designed to promote job opportunities in Tiruchi, openings in neighbouring districts like Pudukottai, Thanjavur, Nagapattinam and Thanjavur are also featured.

Ensuring authenticity of resumes is an initial challenge, admitted Mr.Sivakumar, adding that the portal is cautious on verifying contact details.
