Check out my interview at the MyStartupStory about the journey with FloCareer:
Here is the excerpt:
Flo Career is the most innovative Skills Validation Platform designed to address skill gap analysis and bridging issues prevalent in today’s world. FloCareer helps individuals by providing them a structured roadmap to achieve success; and at the same time helps employers, by ensuring a pool of pre-assessed and pre-interviewed candidates accessible and to make their hiring experience efficient.
After spending about 12 years in USA, when I moved back I wanted to foray into the field of entrepreneurship. I was inspired by the Dalai Lama’s very simple answer to the difficult question of “what is the purpose of life?” and made it my mission statement: “The purpose of life is to be Happy and Aware, and to spread that Happiness and Awareness”. Using technology, I wanted to reach out to maximum number of people and make them aware about the hurdles they face while pursuing their goals. It is ironic that we are living in an information age, but if you don’t know which keywords to search for, even Google can’t help you! At the same time, during my experience in corporate world, I observed that hiring is very ineffective and painful for almost everybody. There is a huge gap between what employers are looking for and the skill set individuals possess.
