New Age Hiring

New Age Hiring

The hiring process is an essential part of any company. When a company decides to bring someone on board and make them a part of their team, this decision can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be if you know what you’re looking for in a candidate before you start interviewing talent.

Jaipuria School of Business organized an expert talk on ” New age hirings” on January 22, 2021, which Ms. Megha Gupta (Director of Human Resource Fiserv) headed.

She elaborated on the thriving tech skills required for millennials in 2021. The tech skills needed for millennials in 2021 are rapidly increasing. By a few years, all jobs will likely require a minimum knowledge of Python and iOS development.

With more millennials entering the workforce, companies realize some trends need to pay more attention to than before. One direction is how they find jobs – many companies today rely heavily on social media platforms like LinkedIn or Facebook for finding new employees. Therefore being active on these sites has become essential for job seekers who want to get noticed by potential employers.

Ms. Megha also emphasized the major transformation in workforce demand. It’s changing from a need for physical labor to a more cerebral job market. Demand for skilled and trained people in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain will be double when there is uncertainty in the business environment. Many companies are looking to hire skilled professionals with machine learning skills.

Ms. Megha was happy to share that the businesses are reopening and gaining momentum for revival. While the companies were closed, many of them lost significant portions of their revenue. Although they are now reopening, it will take time to regain that money.

The session was very interactive, where Ms. Megha also explained that these are effective techniques to invest in, and the students will get out the maximum returns.

Jaipuria School of Business emphasizes the innovative learning of students through experience and caters to this idea through workshops and seminars. Many teachers and students with a vast attendance attended the lecture, where they learned about new age hiring strategies and how these techniques can support their life goals!
