The SaaS platform will provide tips, recommendations, and AI review analysis based on its data bank of over 200,000 HR-approved statements, jargon, and other information compiled by more than 40 HR experts.
Speaking about the collaboration, Chief Executive Officer of Workruit, Manikanth Challa, said:
India’s job market is both competitive and diverse. Recruiters face numerous challenges while screening resumes, making it difficult to identify the right talent. Parallel job seekers are also unable to display resumes that distinguish them as standout candidates. Understanding that, Workruit Resume Builder, with our advanced AI & ML technologies, is addressing a critical issue for the industry by creating a level playing field for both applicants and employers. Also, Workruit Resume Builder is a web and mobile tool that will be helpful for users to explore the tool in their preferred medium.
Students will have a real-time unique Resume URL that can be accessed forever and shared with employers instantly and can track the progress of placements in one place, saving management, administration, and the placements team much time. The college also gets access to companies which are a part of Workruit (2500+) for internships, placements, guest lectures, mentor connect and many more activities. The platform will automate hiring and selection via its Tinder interface.
