Talent Solution Provider

A Web-Based Automatic Resume Generation Tool on the Cloud

Veltrod created a web application that caters specifically to blue scholars and grey scholars. It automatically builds resumes in a prescribed format with available inputs and allows users to download them in a variety of formats and even print them. The application has been serving more than one lakh unique users.

The Client

The client is a US-based employment solution provider bridging talent gaps through innovative cloud technology solutions. It enables Governments, job seekers, military personnel, veterans, employers, industry, educators and students collaborate on a common platform.

Business Need

The military personnel and war veterans who returned from wars at Afghanistan and Iraq found it tough to find civilian jobs since they could not match their skills with the skillsets required for the jobs available in the market. The client required an innovative solution to help these military personnel and veterans find a job in the civilian world. They were also looking to move to the cloud and take advantage of its cost effectiveness.

Veltrod Solution

Veltrod built a web-application called ‘Resume Builder’ that allows job seekers to effortlessly build their resumes. The application maps military job codes to skillsets in the civilian jobs and also suggests suitable jobs to military personnel. The resume builder automatically builds resumes in a specified format in the background by capturing information entered by the job seekers. The application also enables job seekers to dynamically update their resumes, print their resumes and to download them in a variety of formats including word document and PDF.

A deployment hosting service provider, Engine Yard was created on top of the AWS platform to deploy the application on cloud. Veltrod also migrated the legacy client server code to the AWS cloud platform helping the client save costs.

Veltrod developed a module for user evaluation called STEM that is responsible for giving suggestions based on the inputs.

The application was developed at an Extended Development Centre (EDC) setup for the client at Veltrod premises.
