Leading startups such as Ola, Zomato, Limeroad, Justdial, Mobikwik, Bankbazaar, Redbus, OYO Rooms, Magzter, Policy Bazaar and Urban Ladder among others actively participated in the job fair. India’s leading startup hubs such as Nasscom 10K, Microsoft Ventures, T-Labs, 91Springboard and Zone Startup also endorsed this and their startups participated as well.
Many startups have been successful in scouting for talent on the ePoise app. Mayank Agarwal, Founding Director & CTO of Curefy, a next-gen healthcare services startup says, “ePoise is a great platform for screening candidates. The UI is very clean and it allows me to focus on zeroing in on the right candidates for the right profiles.”
“ePoise is an excellent innovation that solves all issues of a job seeker like me mostly related to time and cost constraints. I thank ePoise for giving me an opportunity to communicate through my interview video, what I couldn’t have through my CV. I hope to get good news soon”, says Nikhil Adhlakha one of the many candidates whose interview has been shortlisted by his dreamstart up and is currently being evaluated for a final round.
“The job fair is like none. Unlike resumes, submitting a video gives us a platform to express much more than just work experience, background etc to the companies. Taking an interview on the app made me feel more confident and showcase what my real skills and expertise are”, said Uday Yedira whose selection is in progress.
“ePoise is definitely a well thought out solution, both in terms of product and model, which helps leverage technology for hiring to a great extent. With growing need to add more life to hiring for a better connect, video profiles are just the need of an hour and ePoise seems to address that for us,” said Suzaina Basheer, GM – HR, GOQii.
