Mind you that the Indian education system is one of the largest education systems in the world with nearly 15 lakh schools, more than 97 lakh teachers and more than 26.5 crore students at the school level.

They are being taught by about one crore teaching and non-teaching staff, with the numbers growing every passing year. We researched and brainstormed a lot to make our product more refined depending on the modern education system such that both the job seekers and job givers across all verticals of the education sector are catered to in a seamless manner,” said ShivamAgarwal, an alumnus of Duke University, US and a co-founder of the platform.
Many a times, educational institutes face a hard time finding the right talent amongst a pool of candidates. The portal helps talented job seekers (both in teaching and non-teaching category) to connect with job givers in the education sector offering rewarding career opportunities. Bridging this gap between job seekers and the job givers, the platform addresses the core necessities of the education sector to simplify recruitment. The start-up has launched the product in app version also, both for android and iOS.
The platform offers the job seekers thousands of active jobs, relevant job suggestions, free resume builder to create a personalized resume, a video resume feature, customized job alerts, and ability to track all their evaluation rounds across all job opportunities. The job givers, on the other hand, get to post jobs with meticulously designed parameters, getting applications with relevancy scores, searching candidates across the database using relevant filters, scheduling evaluation rounds for candidates and rolling out offer letters.
“Our application places equal focus on creating opportunities for both teaching and non-teaching staff”, said Agarwal, adding that in the long term, the start-up has a vision to keep building on their current product and ensure that the hiring requirements of the entire Indian education sector is met at a negligible cost to the stakeholders involved.
