E-Recruitment is the latest trend and has been adopted by many large and small corporations.

(Holm, 201).2 The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of factors on perception of Job Seekers, who are millennial students in this study, and their behavioural intention (BI) towards E-Recruitment. The type of research employed in this study is exploratory cum descriptive. Factor Analysis and regression are used as tools of analysis. In the conclusion, this study will enable one to understand that there is a significant effect of perception of job seekers on intention towards e-recruitment.
