2010 Freshers Beware! Several Infogen s coming up!

Oh. I am so angry.

I received about 4 proposals last month, by different companies, agents, colleges. Proposals so gross it made me sick in my stomach.

This is one example, a broker from Bangalore invited my company (IPEG Solutions) to recruit freshers from colleges. This is what he said:


Respected sir/madam,

I introduce myself to you as a campus hiring consultant as I have undertaken many drives.

I charge 5% of the fee collected by you for job guranteed program and I can place as per your requirement.

As 2010 candidates are having final exams  if you contact me we can schedule the drive.

Candidates are willing to pay 1 lac towards job gurantee provided they are given spot offer letter.

This was his offer: Recruit 50 candidates and charge 1 lakh each from them. Next, do what Infogen,Assurgent,GDsoft and Cyndrake did.

No thank you, I said. I would rather remain an honest 10 employee company than a big fake company.

He also attached a sample offer letter that I would have to give the candidates. I have attached it. You can clearly see how they will deliberatly fail you once you paid the One lakh.

Dear Freshers – You may be from a rich family and One lakh may not mean much to you. But please, please don’t fall into this. The first year for a freshers is the most important, and you do not want to spoil your future by starting the wrong way!

Attahched below is the sample offer letter the Agent sent me! How outrageous. I hope they all end up in jail.
