♦ On this platform, the student can connect himself with the HR of any company and find the relevant information directly about employment and internship.
♦ All companies' information whatever they need is updated at all times.
♦ Like other social media, personal and non-working posts are rarely posted on this platform. Even if someone puts it, all the professional people troll that individual, which eventually forces him to delete the post.
