What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Our project idea came from a common pain point that Ashwin and Hei Kern (our CEO and CTO) had while preparing their resume for summer programme application. Both Ashwin and Hei Kern went to Stanford for a summer programme and came back with the idea of removing pain points in the current process of resume writing by creating an automated experience manager and recommendation system.

Ever had hair pulling experiences writing resumes? So many versions of old resumes! Which is the correct one? Have you ever thought “I recall I had a particular experience in the past but I can’t seem to remember all the details?”

Do any of the above situations resonate with you? We feel you. Resume keeping is an essential yet painful thing to do. The way we do our resumes has to change. That is why we have created Resposit; a flexible and searchable resume experience repository where users can input their experiences. Subsequently, when users decide to create a resume, they can utilise the search function that helps them find the experiences they need to include for said resume which suits their requirements.

On average, every corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes. Only the best resumes would grant an interview. However, how many of us can put in all our relevant experiences from memory?

In life, we are constantly learning and gaining new experiences. Based on the forgetting curve, we forget 90% of what we learned in 1 week. As such, it is difficult to remember and keep an up to date record of all of our experiences and then retrieve relevant experiences and skills when writing resumes. Moreover, creation of unique resumes require a lot of effort. It takes a long time to search for jobs that suit our experiences, and it takes time to find out if our experiences suit certain jobs.

At hashlife, we think its time we update the way we store our experiences.

Rather than a Resume Builder, Resposit is a repository to store all your experiences and assist you in choosing your experiences for your resume.

With Resposit, we aim to fundamentally change the way students and professionals keep their resumes. The aim of this kick-starter campaign is to focus on creating the set of algorithms that would allow the resume repository to be:

  • Language aware (NLP) 
  • Interconnected (cluster, indexing, mapping)
  • Context aware

With the following in place, writing a resume would be as easy as entering your desired position into a search bar and getting a list of recommended experiences along with linked suggestions for your resume.

As this project aims to create a strong back-end, alpha version would be interfaced via a telegram bot. Backers can send us their resume and we will index and contextualize your experiences using our algorithms. Whenever you need a resume, simply text the bot with your search terms and it will return you the list of relevant experiences to be included in your resume.

Try Resposit now

Send us your resume/s via email. (hashlife0@gmail.com) We will put it through our programme. We will give you 2 free searches on Resposit so you can experience the convenience and effectiveness! (for free!)

Success Story:

include Ashwin's story.

As a backend interface, we have so far created a flexible insertion of resumes and English Parser and Searcher. We aim to incorporate the rest of the backend by February 2018.

After our alpha version, we would be focusing on bringing Resposit to your fingertips. This may include a fully functional website with all the features mentioned and more.

In the future,we are looking at linking Adhoc jobs to people with relevant experiences, being able to message managers and human resource, recommend certain jobs to users who has that skill set and matching people to people.

Resposit is the first step to all these possibilities. This Kickstarter campaign will help us to evaluate our product-market fit in a larger scale and also provide us with the funds to work on our future plans

"Any small skills/experience that I have, I take it for granted and forget to include them in my resume. But with this product I can store all the experiences that I gained, even the small ones, and so Resposit can not only help me build a good resume, it can also save me during my interview."

Ragini Gurumurthy, SUTD ISTD Sophomore

"An application to make resumes modular is a great idea as it lets to create resumes that are tailored to your needs in a hassle-free and quick manner"

Dhanya, SUTD Alumni, software developer.

"I have always struggled with creating resumes for jobs application.

I strongly believe that resposit will help users in representing themselves for their job applications"

Shawn Lim, SUTD ESD sophomore

Risks and challenges

Our alpha version requires heavy computational power and as such is being hosted locally. Hence, no data will be sent to the internet. We seek to reassure our adopters that your data will only be used for the scope of this project.

Our algorithm based product relies on critical mass of users in order to be accurate and fully effective. We seek your cooperation and understanding while we develop the necessary user base to being training our modals.
