I was little demoralised in state of recession where there were no takers for my ideas. While working for people outside country I really dont have much contacts here in Pune.

I feel bad that why I have not found OCC earlier but as… Continue

What exactly is the long tail, in layman terms its the revenue from niche choices that reduces the dependency of a business on generating revenue from a select few considered as popular choices. It also means more consumer freedom as he/she is not restricted in terms to accept popular… Continue

I have worked for 3 startups and for 3 large companies.
Startus are crazy as the environment is informal, the top boss is around, everyone know everything, there is no politics, we all work long hours in office, home and markets.
Its like home for people who really love to work, explore, learn, grow and one day become big.
The best time to join a startup is at its birth. But its never too late to join a startup.
I have enjoyed working for a startup… Continue

IT industry has seen so many start -ups turned into giants in very small time span for example Microsoft, Google and Yahoo…but these are few compare to those who have failed to make it.. Entrepreneurship is often a difficult undertaking, as a vast majority of new businesses fail.There are very few professionals who think innovative and try to do something different from their 9 to 5 work responsibilities…at least in India.
Many start-ups die in their early days , reason is… Continue

As training being the important aspect of every recruitment procedure ,it is very important to put a greater emphasis on the part of corporate governance.At This recessionary period the focus of every employee should be in increasing their efficiency and realisation of their goals at workplace.There might be some instances where the corporates may suffer a major set back due to some of the inadequecies that probably would have been neglected at the very initial phase.At this time specially… Continue

Let's see what are the odds:
(1) Difficult time for recruiters - many complaining about reduced or no business, some closed shop
(2) The brand is new to the industry
(1) A product which really addresses recruiters' needs - even during tough times (Our confidence has increased after comparing it with other products in the market)
(2) SaaS offering - zero installation, zero maintenance, very little payments as you… Continue

HeadTracker 3 is our SaaS version. SaaS brings in quite a few benefits to the clients as well as for us. It brings down the entry cost for our clients, whereas for us it gives us better supportability, better upgradability and most importantly ensuring that our clients use the software.
We redesigned our site http://www.headtracker.net in the first week of January. The new design looks better, at the same time it brings out the benefits of HeadTracker for the recruiters to the… Continue
