After helping 2,000+ clients with their resumes, we launched a DIY online resume builder. At the time of launch, we had pre filled targeted content for 50 jobs as well as 20 resume designs on the tool.
The main difference between us and everyone else in the market is that we are really really focused on ensuring that each and every resume created on our tool has targeted content for the job that our users are going to apply to. Having job targeted content on your resume leads to a much higher probability of getting the shortlist as you showcase only those bits of info which are relevant to the job that you are applying for! This is something that almost everyone misses out on when they write their own resumes. And this is something that we understood while writing resumes for more than 2,000 people. Hence, we wanted to provide a DIY option for our users as well.
Launched our career services wing
Finally, after freelancing for 3 months, we launched our own service wing, wherein we started helping clients with their resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles etc.
We also started connecting professionals with recruitment consultants, headhunters, HR firms etc. so that they could directly apply to the positions that these firms were trying to fill!
Having a services model was also essential to ensure our sustainability, given that we wanted to stay bootstrapped. :)
Started freelancing for professionals!
We had already hired a lot of people in our last startup but then we wanted to be absolutely sure about delivering great products & services to the market. Hence, in order to understand resumes and career services in depth, the 3 of us started freelancing - resume writing, LinkedIn profile preparation, interview preparation etc.
We worked with clients from the US, India, UK, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, UAE, Qatar etc!
This truly helped us to understand what was the exact deliverable that people wanted
So many professionals are great at what they do, but most aren't that good at creating resumes.
Having hired 1k+ people ourselves, we help people land their dream jobs by creating job targeted resumes for them!
