It is ironic that in spite of millions of young people graduating every year, India faces a huge dearth of talent. Fresh graduates everywhere are facing an uphill challenge in terms of securing a job. Studies indicate that just less than a quarter of students graduating in a year are actually employable. Conceived to bridge this gap, TalentSprint Pvt. Ltd. - a Hyderabad headquartered professional skill development and integrated talent management has created a platform that connects employers with skilled job seekers.

Incorporated in 2009, TalentSprintis a leader in creating high performance professionals for the global industry through its integrated talent management solutions.

"We view skill development through the eyes of the job seeker who wishes to pursue the right skills in line with his or her career aspirations. In particular, we operate in knowledge-intensive verticals like information technology and banking," affirms Santanu Paul, CEO &MD, TalentSprint.

TalentSprint embodies the idea that skills must be delivered swiftly and effectively in line with the market requirement. The company offers a collegial and transparent work culture with excellent diversity, flexible work options and culture of continuous learning along with a meritocratic environment that encourages entrepreneurial decision making at all levels.

Positioned as a Skills 2.0 company, TalentSprint strives to follow a simple yet differentiated strategy in its offerings. The organization uses digital marketing in terms of outreach and market awareness creation and learning technologies to supplement their contact-oriented skill programs, while expanding their network of interested employers. TalentSprint is also committed to involving itself in hands-on creation of highly exclusive skills and employability platform in terms of scale and scope.
