Grass Always Looks Greener on the other side of the road!
After so much efforts and tiring work, i started my own consultancy firm in Lucknow. Soon, i realized that it was not very easy to survive in Lucknow. Lucknow had its own consultancy trend, where the Job consultancy company charged money from the candidates instead of the companies. I never liked this trend because i still remember the days when I was student. We were given limited money and it was very hard for us to pay membership fess to the job consultancies for jobs and sometimes we even fall prey to some of the fake consultancies who charged us money promising jobs but we never received interview calls from them.
I know how much it troubled me. Even after paying fee to many consultancies, jobs weren’t guaranteed. What was guaranteed was just tension for jobs. I wanted to do something, something for the students. I wanted to provide appropriate jobs for them without charging any fee from them. But it wasn’t so easy. When every consultancies charged money, and you decide not to charge any money from students you have to have some backup plans for survival.
Survival with the above decision was really tough, but not impossible. Initially companies were not wiling to partner with Gs Job Point for their Jobs requirements because GS Job Point charged them whereas other companies did not charge them. Many companies suggested us to charge money from candidates, but i was firm that GS Job Point will never charge money for jobs. from students. Soon, Companies started realizing the difference between GS Job Point and other job consultancies and they started to come themselves to partner with us. In just one years time, GS Job Point was counted among the top consultancies of Lucknow
What i learnt is that Its important to have a vision for your company. I had the vision to help students and to change the trend that is prevalent in Lucknow. Although it takes a huge lot of patience to convert your vision into reality, Its always worth the effort. GS Job Point has already placed hundreds of students free of charge and will continue to do so even in the future.
