>> Silicon Valley Startup comes up BIG with an innovative idea to fight recession

Mr. Jay Gohil, President, NextGen Technologies
In times where millions of Americans have lost their jobs, a local bay area company has taken a small step to help people fight recession.  Startup companies in California use to generate tons of jobs and millions in revenue and have continued to grow over the last few years, now they have seen its business slow down because of the slump in the economy.  In times where unemployment is highest in the history of USA, and thousands of people are searching for jobs, social networking companies, vertical job boards, and job aggregators are steadily growing. As corporate recruiters say that they have shifted their spending away from recruiting companies and are starting to spend money on major job portals, and their own employment branding strategies.

Where giant Social Networking companies, Vertical Job Boards, & Job Aggregators are busy in taking advantage of economy and earning big profit, it’s a small companies like Nextgen who took a step forward to fight recession and help people in  getting jobs. Nextgen who has deep understanding of the recruiting industry and understands these trends has sponsored free career Counseling camp at BAPS center in Milpitas, CA on 5th March 2011 to bring job seekers & recruiters on the same platform where they can interact one on one and help each other search right resources which makes it easier than recruiters and job seekers to search, select, filter, and find the right job match.

But despite slowdown of the economy and  continued growth of job listing, social and networking companies, startup like Nextgen always comes up with novel idea of win-win solutions like fight the recession and helping people find job at the same time also  advertising,  and fighting an inexorable trend toward social networks –As Jay Gohil (President of Nextgen Technologies)  says “Corporate recruiters go where the people are –  and ultimately advertising revenue and new service revenue is moving toward job listings, or social/professional networking companies”.

Having realized that early on Nextgen is moving ahead with its business goal with project “Gongzuo” will ultimately become the magnet for recruiters.   It is one system that integrates all aspects of recruitment and enables effective communication and collaboration between recruiters, management, customers, interviewers and candidates, at any time and from anyplace. Flexible and On-Demand, Gongzuo will be very intuitive, easy to use and implement.

The company which seemed very satisfied with the success of their efforts is saying they will arrange more free counseling camps like this in near future.
