True Merit Home Page——–> Left Panel Menu——-> Select Workflows————> Resume & Priority List Review (3rd Option) ——–> Refer to the detailed steps mentioned in the Help Doc here  ——–> Upload the details in the prescribed template with your Resume & the priority list of the companies here:

Resume AI-Tool to help you build CVs ATS compatible

Resume will only be uploaded under the workflow only if it passes the AIThe hygiene points being checked by this tool:

  • No Grammatical or Spelling mistakes
  • Resume points should start with Action verb
  • Resume points should be quantitatively defined, and quantitative value should be in the beginning 1/3rd of the resume point sentence.
  • Resume point length should not be too long or too short
  • Resume points should be in active voice
  • Sentiment of your resume points should be either positive or neutral.
  • Resume points should be objective and not open to subjective interpretations.

Please note

AI will check the above parameters though, in case you do not agree with any of the suggestions shared, you can point out results points which you do not agree with and need further clarity on.
We encourage all of you to use this feature and share your feedback so that the tech team can make further improvisations based on the inputs and feedback shared by all of you.

In the initial stages, you might be able to submit your resume anyway ignoring the AI results. However, we recommend that you work on the resume based on the AI results and try to get it passed through it.

Flipped Classroom


Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
  • Mentors work as guide on the side, with the learners
  • Learners develop skills on problem solving, critical thinking and self-learning – the 21st century skills that employers look for
  • Great for scenarios where application skills matter
  • 21st century skills require guide on the side. Simply acquiring knowledge is worthless now.
