Sunstone Eduversity to Increase the Hiring Chances of Freshers by Infusing Industry-relevant Skills 

Munjal stated that most freshers in India lack industry-relevant skills, which is one of the biggest challenges they face in interviews. It reduces their chances of getting recruited by reputed companies. He added that Sunstone Eduversity focuses on practical skills training rather than outdated theory learning methods.  

Notably, the team generated over 450 internship offers for the 2019-21 bath despite the pandemic. The edtech firm focuses on the careers of students and operates on the pay-after-placement model. On the platform, students can join via an initial nominal registration fee. They can pay the rest of the payments after completing the 2-year program and recruitment. 

The company claims that it has received more than 10,000 applications in 2020 and has enrolled over 1,000 students. It has witnessed a 3X growth since its inception. As per the company’s statement, it is working closely with corporates to develop students as industry ready specialists in different segments. It includes BFSI, sales management, logistics, analytics, digital marketing, and others.
