CView -  Bridging The Gap Between Students And Employers Using Artificial Intelligence


In a world full of opportunities and changing market trends, competition can be fierce and often cut throat for students.  While students are prepared for technical skills during their education, what most students are lacking in are  people skills and soft skills.  Students often tend to ignore the most obvious weapon in their arsenal, which is their Curriculum Vitae (CV.)    A good CV will not only get you a foot in the door, it will also give the employer/interviewer a reason to prolong the interview thereby increasing the chances of landing a job.  

This is where a startup called CView comes into the picture as it helps bridge the gap between students and employers by using artificial intelligence.  CView was founded by Chavi Agarwal who found a gap in the market between employers and students.  After doing some research to find out the root cause for why there is a disconnect between students and employers, Agarwal found out the CV or curriculum vitae, was the reason behind the rejections.  Students tend to use generic templates available on the internet or end up copying from their peers instead of putting the effort to come up with an attractive CV.  

Chavi Agarwal had her ‘Eureka’ moment when she realised she could draw upon her expertise in AI and machine learning and merge it with her personal experience.  This led to her developing India’s first end to end applicant tracking system.  This in house applicant tracking system helps use AI and Machine learning to generate an enviable CV for students.  CView uses its tracking system to find the correct job candidate fit for its customers.  In an industry which is still using manual methods to find the right candidate, Chavi Agarwal saw scope to use technology and built an applicant tracking system which is on par with any top multinational company.

How does CView set itself apart from the rest of its competitors?  CView has three unique selling points with the first being its in house applicant tracking system and a database of more than 1,00,000 CV’s.  CView has an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) score of 90 which is quite good.  An ATS score is used to determine the quality of a resume and a score of 80% is usually considered good.  An ATS scans resumes and checks for compatibility with search keywords and assigns a score.  CView has managed to increase the employability chances of students by 60% with their ATS and AI.  CView’s ATS makes it easier to optimise CV’s by making them compliant with the tracking systems.  By offering CV building services from scratch CView also makes resumes compliant with a good ATS score thereby increasing the chances of a students employability.

CView is a customer centric organisation and therefore candidates are given due importance and are made to talk to professionals for coming up with a customised and personal CV.  The third USP is a comprehensive candidate profile assessment which lets CView capture the essence of each profile.

CView currently offers its services via three plans namely Fast Track, Enhance and Build, with each plan having its own offerings.  Fast Track is the basic plan while Build is a premium offering.  There is a separate offering for startups to license CView’s ATS. 

Cview aims to disrupt the recruitment process by throwing light on how the ATS systems work and by letting students know the importance of a good CV and  how it needs to be compliant with the applicant tracking system.

With its entire process automated and completely running on the internet, CView is able to reach out to broader target audiences all over the world.  By constantly educating their customers about ATS and its importance, Chavi Agarwal and CView is only continuing to grow in the future.

Sector Well Prepared to Counter Third Wave: Sachin Gawri of Rise Infraventures Limited

Residential real estate in India has shifted from being dominated by investors to being dominated by end-users. Commercial real estate, on the other hand, is a far more appealing investment opportunity for both wealthy individuals and institutional investors. Sachin Gawri, Founder and CEO, Rise Infraventures Limited, throws light on the real estate scenario with focus on luxury residential and commercial segment.

Sachin Gawri, Founder and CEO, Rise Infraventures Limited

The real estate sector will be unaffected by the third wave because the country is prepared with a vaccination programme and the required infrastructure to mitigate the negative impacts. People have begun to look at real estate to stabilise their financial condition as a source of optimism. Following the first shocks in April and May 2021, economic activity across sectors began to build up in June 2021, owing to declining infections and progressive loosening of lockdowns.

Unlike the first wave, the real estate sector was more prepared for the second. The markets favourable tendencies, such as demand for larger homes, are seen in the numbers from Q2 2021. The real estate industry has likewise recognised the arrangements that it must deal with, and developers have maintained the ratio as a result. In the premium market, the percentage of new launches reached 15%, which is close to the 18% share it had in 2018. The sector will benefit from the optimization of launches in line with demand, enabling the sector achieve respectable sales statistics in the coming quarters.

Putting the fear of a pandemic aside, many property buyers are concentrating their efforts on luxury residential properties. The percentage of the premium has increased significantly, showing strong demand in Gurugram. Small investors, institutional investors, farmhouse seekers, and gated community enthusiasts all have options, thanks to the varied range of real estate options available in luxury.

The demand for houses in the periphery has risen dramatically; for example, the Dwarka Expressway in Gurugram is gaining much traction. Buyers from all sectors are shopping for properties in these places, not just those in the affordable group. The movement, however, cannot be credited to the COVID because work on rehabilitating the neighbourhoods has already begun. As infrastructure progresses, buyers begin to see the reality of the promise of a better living here. Buyers key concern is connectivity, and with many roads and expressways running through these neighbourhoods, acceptability has grown.

In the aftermath of the pandemic, the commercial has suddenly gained traction. Pre-rented units, for example, have joined the commercial area, assuring investors of a guaranteed income. There is no dramatic spike in demand, but a certain momentum could lead to brighter days ahead for the commercial sector. Commercial real estate is preferred by those contemplating real estate as an investment strategy because it provides attractive rent and appreciation returns. The category has also emerged, with creative technologies to make peoples lives easier. The most recent is a fractional investment, which allows smaller investors to participate in the pie.

Despite the pandemics interruption in recent quarters, office space absorption in Indias six major cities is expected to reach 41.3 million sq. ft. in 2021, up 22% from 2019. The leasing market in Delhi-NCR is forecast to grow by 20-25 per cent, with the majority of activity occurring in the second half of the year. Technology, BFSI, consulting, and manufacturing occupiers are projected to drive demand. The Delhi-NCR area has an 8.5 million sq. ft. pipeline of new supply, with Gurugram set to finish roughly 65 percent of it.
