New Delhi, August 22nd, 2022: Hiring freeze, layoff spree and lack of funding, the numerous aspects of the infamous startup winter have seized the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem at an unprecedented stage. However, there are a few companies that are regularly hiring, albeit in a quiet manner. In this temporary yet distressful phase, Shine.com, India’s second-largest job portal, has unveiled a unique program called Startup Winter Initiative. The #RebootwithShine initiative intends to provide a supporting forum for affected employees, assisting them in navigating these difficult times. We have joined up with numerous firms in this attempt as their outplacement partners to give strong help and link them with the suitable employers to get another employment.
Mr. Akhil Gupta, CEO, Shine.com said, “The #RebootwithShine Initiative aims to serve as a supportive platform for the affected employees and help them sail through these pressing times. In fact, we have joined forces with several companies in this endeavor as their outplacement partners to provide robust assistance and connect them with the right employers to secure another job. As a responsible player in this space, we intend to be the perfect recruiting buddy for employees seeking job opportunities and get them back on their feet ASAP.”
Mr. Vijay Nair, VP Marketing, Shine.com said, “The funding winter has impacted the Indian and international entrepreneurial ecosystem. Shine.com’s Startup Winter Initiative is specifically designed for employees affected by the funding winter. We intend to connect relevant stakeholders so that companies can hire the right talent while candidates can take advantage of immediate job opportunities. Plus, this entire service is free of charge because we just want to be their buddies looking out for them during these trying times.”

Third, candidates will be able to reach more than 50K recruiters PAN India.
