His first-hand experience and understanding the discipline this sector is in need played a great role in the success of this endeavor.
In the words of the founder of Just.Jobs, Kishore Beniwal:
“It is not easy to run such a startup, especially in a country like India where white-collar jobs are always preferred but I know the importance of this platform and have launched it to empower the informal workforce and instead of disrupting the sector, choose to organize it with Just.Jobs.
Today, Just.Jobs have come a long way since it was launched in partnership with SR Madhukar who is in charge of finances and operations.
