Recruitment portal Aasaanjobs.com has raised $1.5 million in a seed round of funding from venture capital funds Inventus Capital Partners and IDG Ventures India. The portal will use the funds to hire management and tech professionals, product development and to offer new features. Aasaanjobs is a platform for finding blue collared and entry level white collared jobs in India. The website offers two options to users on the home page - to hire people, or find jobs. On selecting either option, users are prompted to choose the specific job and the city they want to search in. Jobs listed on the platform currently include nanny, cashier, content writer, data entry operator, delivery boy, customer care executive, engineer, driver, graphic designer, financial planner, maid, nurse, office assistant and office boy among others. As of now, the listings are quite limited. Case in point, although the website offers an option to choose a city, there is only one option, Mumbai/Thane/Navi Mumbai and some listings like those for nannys are currently empty. While anyone can view these listings, to submit CV’s or post requirements as employers, prior registration to the website is required. The platform is free for those posting their CV’s but has a pricing tier for employers. Employers have to share 4.33% of a hired employee’s CTC for a basic membership, 8.33% for standard membership which offers 3 months guarantee on candidate replacement and 10.33% for an advanced membership which offers 6 months guarantee on candidate replacement.
