Square Yards, the technology-enabled real-estate transaction platform is gearing up to hire freshers directly from university and college campuses. It plans to add more than 1500 employees to its workforce, for which it will be connecting with more than 100 universities and colleges.
The Company seeks to hire freshers as they are more keen to learn and grow, being in their formative years.
Square Yards has managed to successfully make real-estate jobs attractive by combining excellent incentive structures and international opportunities. It is known to offer opportunities for holistic growth.
Compared to other proptech firms, Square Yards has managed to grow significantly in a short span of time, that is, less than five years. Having expanded operations to 10 countries, it has a current workforce strength of more than 2,500.
Campus hiring is the key to Square Yards’ recruitment strategy. It has also added several layers of screening so as to be able to hire the ideal candidates, while keeping them engaged throughout the process.
The campus hiring process will begin this month and be completed by March next year. New employees will be inducted in the new financial year, in April 2020.
The multiple rounds in the selection process will include a psychometric
analysis, an aptitude test, a personal interview, and also a unique group discussion, which is in the form of a game called Mafia. It brings out the key interpersonal traits in a candidate, such as the power to lead a conversation, the ability to interpret body language, the power to grasp and express relevant public opinion, and the skill to communicate effectively.
Square Yards focuses on an equal and inclusive work culture in a fast-paced environment. It also encourages both geographical and cross-functional movements across the organisation so that employees never lack newer thrills and growth opportunities. Realising that each employee has a different personal goal, it offers the best compensation structures in the industry, combining fixed and variable pay, wherein employees can decide their own level and pace of growth.
