Enabling Job Aspirants to Make Career Choices 

In India, there are 30 million youngsters completing their higher education and spending close to $5000 for it, aiming to get a dream career opportunity. A majority of these aspirants are first-generation graduates with no one in their circle to guide them on their career choices. Expertrons bridges this last mile gap to help students and professionals make the right career decisions. 

The AI-based videobot platform helps people, particularly seasoned working professionals and industrialists create an educational video like an interview experience. The users can come and talk to the videobot of the mentor, and seasoned professional. The platform essentially matches profiles and enables them to connect through pre-recorded videos of these experts. Based on that, a user can make a decision whether to connect with them and accordingly, take consultation.

After the unique videobot interaction, experts get a lifetime earning opportunity via referral bonus and one on one consultations to interested aspirants," Jatin Solanki, Co-founder at Expertrons, said in the company's official statement. 

"We have eliminated the problem of connecting with friends, and close connections to seek consultation. This concept of reaching out to somebody is inherently in nature. Now, instead of reaching out to friends, you can now go outside, and reach a person, who is working for Google, which is a dream for a person," Vivek Gupta, Co-founder at Expertrons, explained functionality of videobot technology to BusinessEx. 

"Videobot technology that is being used at Expertrons help deal with time constraints that professionals and mentors face while offering consultation to young jobseekers and aspirants.
