ABOUT CHAVI AGARWAL- FOUNDER AND CEO OF CVIEW
Ms Chavi Agarwal, Founder & CEO of Cview is an entrepreneur with a demonstrated experience in Career Technology and ATS software development. She did her Bachelor’s in Finance from Warwick Business School, UK. The fire to be an entrepreneur and the urge to create something tangible for people around her led her to pursue a Master’s degree in Innovation Entrepreneurship and Financial Technology from Imperial College, London. It was at the Imperial College that she finally honed the idea of doing something for the students and recruits seeing the issues students face while applying for jobs globally. She has worked in eminent startups and one of the Big4s in the field of Mergers and Acquisitions.
She has mentored more than 1000 students and has given 100+ webinars all across the globe to actively contribute to the student and youth community.
WHAT DOES CVIEW DO?
CView is an organisation in Career-Technology which has built India’s first end-to- End ATS compliant CV Service to alleviate the issues youth globally faces due to Lack of right Job- Person fit and awareness of ATS compliance leaving the youth unsatisfied and unmotivated as they settle for suboptimal opportunities.
We understand how difficult it gets to cope up with these issues and hence provide profile building hacks and CV curation services along with all possible updates.
CView’s in-house Application Tracking System (ATS) has similar capabilities to any robust MNC based ATS system. Its design and results are unmatched and their CV’s increase the customer’s chances of getting an interview call from MNCs, MSMEs and Start-ups by 60%.
HOW DID THE IDEA FOR CVIEW COME UP? (LIGHT BULB)
Ms. Agarwal saw a huge gap in the market between the recruits and the employers. She noticed that students did not know the importance of an effective CV and did not even know that their CV went to certain software called the Applicant Tracking System and not to a human anymore. She observed that maximum applications globally are rejected because of a poor CV. Upon research in the market, she also realized that existing services are generic and create CVs out of prototype templates.
This is when she combined her knowledge from personal experiences with her learning in artificial intelligence and machine learning and started CView, a software development company that combines AI and Human expertise to guide students with their first impression into a firm- their CV.
She combined her human expertise with artificial software and built an in-house Applicant Tracking System to easily churn out CVs so the students would be able to get better opportunities. She was able to see scope in this field which is still manual, in a technologically heavy environment. It had to be internet-based since she did not want to territoriality restrict her organisation to simply one country.
WHAT IS CVIEW’S MAIN OBJECTIVE?
In noticing the issues recruits and students all around the world face during their application process Ms Agarwal is determined to alleviate the problem of lack of right Job-Person fit and awareness of ATS compliance.
“Our endeavour is to train our software with machine learning so that it can replicate a recruiter’s acumen to perfection. We also wish to remove any human interface in the CV building and checking process.” – Miss Chavi Agarwal, Founder and CEO
CView has three main unique selling points:
Its first USP is an in-house Application Tracking system developed by Ms. Agarwal with a database of more than 1,00,000 CVs which is as Robust as any MNC’s ATS tool. All CV’s curated by CView are end to end ATS compliant and have a minimum ATS score of 90.
CView is an extremely customer oriented organisation and thus, the second USP is CView’s personalised discussion and improvement calls with all users in order to understand their experiences and journey in depth.
The third and final USP is a comprehensive Profile assessment sheet, which is used to build CVs from scratch. We are compassionate towards each customer’s individual employee journey and thus, aim to capture the essence of each through our Profile assessment sheet.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN CHAVI AGARWAL’S JOURNEY AS AN ENTREPRENEUR?
As a woman entrepreneur, especially in Technology, she faced the following two challenges:
Firstly, people, investors, partners and collaborators kept second-guessing her commitment and hence the longevity of the business. As a woman entrepreneur, she saw herself constantly working harder to showcase her passion, ambition and her long-term vision. She found herself explaining her vision and the enormity of it more than any male counterpart would ever have to.
Secondly, people expect women to be working in women-oriented businesses and the challenge then is to constantly face an ongoing perception battle. Although, what keeps her going is the fire and the urge to provide a new and improved value proposition to the youth, globally.
Apart from that, the organisation has to continuously educate customers about the ATS as most people do not understand the importance of it and thus, this results in a high customer acquisition effort and cost which is quite a challenge.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR TEAM?
For Chavi Agarwal, Cview is synonymous to her ‘GIRL GANG’. She has carefully recruited and trained her compassionate and hardworking all girl team. CView’s team consists of 23 back and front end members which are further divided in 7 divisions which are all helmed by strong and powerful women. It’s this dynamic team she owes Cview’s success to.
WHAT IS CVIEW DOING FOR SOCIETY?
CView believes that there is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in the lives of people. Ms Chavi Agarwal is a propagator of Women Empowerment and hence CView donates 30% of its proceeds toward Women Education in India.

CView would also be hosting a ‘back to school’ webinar for students of class 12 th as well as for over 500 students studying in different Government colleges to educate them about the importance of an ATS compliant effective CV.
ANY ADVICE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS?
“As a budding female entrepreneur, I cannot stress enough on the fact that you really do not need high investments or a million-dollar plan. You can leverage your skills, existing platforms and tools available to create value and establish something you enjoy doing. We had a 0 INR investment and have a 92% profit ratio at the moment through our bootstrapping efforts. You just need the will and the urge to create value for people and address existing problems in the market. We are constantly told to innovate something unique, be disruptors and create new markets to be called an entrepreneur. That is not true, you can be innovative in the way you tackle a problem by creating a new value proposition for the market.”
