Abstract: BabaJob.com, a Bangalore-based start-up, a unique Internet site that provides employment to the poor through the concept of online social networking. The idea is to help the highly unorganised poor workforce of the economy like maids, helpers, drivers, cooks, etc. The case not only gives the wider view of this but also highlights various issues, restricting the member users to integrate them with the growing popularity of online social networking. It illustrates the process by which an illiterate gets job through the help of a mentor, and in the process the mentor gets rewarded for every jobseekers acceptance of job.
