Launched in 2014 by Sahil Chalana, a BITS Pilani Alumni, Collegedunia has repeatedly established itself as a one-stop destination for students looking for colleges and exams in India and abroad. With more than 3 lakh authentic student reviews, the portal is currently India’s largest student-review platform.
The company has evolved its working model into developing itself as a strategic partner for its clients and is constantly taking prudent decisions like which courses to launch and how to position the respective colleges in the market, etc.
Shedding the light on the objective of robust hiring, Sahil Chalana, the founder of the company states, “The kind of product and model Collegedunia has and envisions requires a top-tier talent and best-in-class team to broaden the operations to expand to far-fetched territories and spaces and finally contribute extensive value to the industry.”
With an existing workforce of over 1000 employees pre-campus hiring, Collegedunia is further planning to hire 300+ members by subsequent, aggressive recruitment through traditional-hiring channels. The company also plans to get on board some 500 graduates of the 2022 batch from major IIM’s, IIT’s, and other premium MBA and engineering institutes around the country to immediately enter a rapid-expansion mode.
Sanjay Meena, business head at Collegedunia in his statement adds, “With its powerful product, analytical capabilities, an efficient team, and additional recruiting, Collegedunia aims to further grow as a user-friendly platform and digitalize the education industry like never before. We are collectively working towards our goal and are very hopeful for the upcoming financial year.”
Amidst the uncertainty due to COVID where physical walk-ins were almost impossible for the past two years, the company has been facilitating its portal for students and is acting as a digital medium for colleges and universities. Currently, Collegedunia has partnered with more than 1000 institutes and looks forward to working with the next 1000 to achieve its target of generating a revenue of 150 crores by the next financial year.
