About Monika Sharma
Monika Sharma is the Founder of jiTalent venture. She is born and brought up in Chandigarh, India and completed her schooling from Chandigarh itself, and did her Masters in Computer Applications from Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, an elite institute in India, in 2010. She then spent few years working with a MNC company, Packet Video. But the calling of her dreams was so loud that she dropped her high paying job and started preparing the blueprint of jiTalent, an online job and training portal for bridging the gap between employers and job seekers.
When and how did she start jitalent?
JiTalent job and training portal is the result of a vision to help SME’s to get FREE access to a talent pool to fulfill their hiring requirements as they are not much financially sound. The main idea is to bring employers and job seekers on a common platform so they can benefit each other and eradicate the problem of unemployment. Monika has a dream to do something good for the youth and she came up with an idea of making a job portal which can inform about jobs and industrial trainings to the students and allow them to apply for the same. She wants to bring a change in that section of society where people undergo depression if they are not able to grab a job. With the advent of smart phones and tablets, this idea has more value, as it can reach to people in remote areas also. SME’s also can hire talented people for their business for free by using jiTalent.
Monika Sharma, Founder of jiTalent, runs a team of 85+ hard working, skilled and experienced employees at present with a vision to enlighten the career of the youth. Although being an entrepreneur she is involved in several other businesses, but jiTalent is one of her best invention till date.

With her employee management skills, hard work and dedication, the team size has increased from nowhere to 85+ within just 4 years.
