Nikhil Chainani, 23, CEO of Perspectico share his next portfolio for students with Brainfeed Higher Education Plus
Q. How Perspectico is different from others in terms of gaining career-based skills?
When a students go through the process, we measure their strengths, weakness and suggest the course. Our aim to make the preparation more efficient. What to buy based on the skills set and what companies search in a candidate is informed by us. We focus on working with the industry and recruiters and figure out new evolving parameters in the sector. We understand the process and gamify it.
Q. How Perspectico as different?
Our product contains:
• Cost effective: We charge half the price from our competitors and with our profit margins at par with the sector.
• Customization in testing: Rather us selling you with a standard test, we let you make your own test instantly (Personality, Technical, Aptitude, etc).
• Suggestive AI: You just need to study the most relevant book once.
Q. How do you shorten gap between academic and industry?
INTERNSHIPS AND WORKEX should be made the primary focus in the college curriculum. It is the responsibility of the federal bodies to ensure that. You cannot expect a student to make a better career decision when they are not aware of what is out there. Perspectico has conducted 150+ sessions all over North India in the past 1.5 years and there is a huge gap between academia and industry. Although, we in the private space are doing as much as we can. A lot more needs to be done at the policy level.
We focus on working with the industry and recruiters directly. We figure out what are the new and constantly evolving parameters in the sector. We understand the process and gamify it.
Q. Best advice to students to move with a career path from the initial stage of their life?
What to do in your career is subjected. I feel there is nothing wrong in doing a 9-5 corporate job too. Entrepreneurship is a not a stunt neither is it as exciting as it sounds. Pursuing a passion comes at a cost. So my advice is to think and get perspective from people who have been down that road.
Q. Tell us about your future plans?
Perspectico is pivoting. We are now launching a new portal soon. The new system will help HR to hire better candidates, faster and at the same time help students prepare for the right job in the most relevant way.
