While studying at MNNIT Allahabad GetWork founders Rahul Veerwal and Sumit Gupta discovered the imploding campus placement system for students due to the skills gap present across India. Students were unable to secure quality opportunities in a saturated job market.
They recognized that the potential of AI/ML technology could bridge this employability gap faced by Talent Acquisition and Campus Recruiters and built the foundations of GetWork.
College & University Training and Placement Coordinators rapidly took interest in the business model and became official partners. Corporates, although harder to crack due to a multitude of options available in the market, are quickly seeing the unique value proposition the tech platform has to offer, especially with its candidate-matching tech.
GetWork was created to ensure that all college students have equal access to meaningful careers. Since our 2019 founding in Gurugram, our network of colleges and employer partners has positively impacted student career options.
In early 2019, GetWork had the honor of being selected in the Top 100 Global Startups for the Startup Turkey Event! Rahul Veerwal and his team attended the event and were able to showcase GetWork on a global level.
Our business model was received well, and the team made friends and networks that will last for a lifetime! View our gallery for pictures from the trip.
