Upward of four million graduates enter the labor market every year in India alone. India boasts of a large services economy, wherein a single company hires thousands of new employees every year. Meanwhile, product companies and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) look for a few skilled people each. This requires cost-effective and scalable methods of hiring. Interviewing every applicant is not a feasible solution.
On the other hand, graduates from 30,000+ institutes of higher education spread across 20+ Indian states face a constant challenge in signaling their competence to potential employers. Companies, most of which are located in the top 20 biggest cities in the country, bias their search by relying on proxies like university name and the city a college is located in. Applying such crude filters results in meritorious students from various demographics being ignored. Further, these students have no mechanism to get feedback on how their skills compare to those required by the industry.
