Here is our conversation with Punit Man Shrestha, business owner of Patent Writer, about the ideas behind the solution, tech innovation and more.  

Please tell us about your hackathon project

While it is true that a resume paints a concise picture of who you are as an individual, oftentimes, it is not enough. A tailored resume helps you stand out from the rest of the candidates

and helps an employer figure out how you are a right fit for the job. That is where our project, Resume Assistant, comes into play. Our system, Resume Assistant, is an AI-driven platform that helps candidate tailor their resume to the job they are applying for.

At its core, our system does three things – segmentation, recommendation, and customization. 

Please share the skills and technologies your team used during the development of your project.

Since we had only few days to develop the entire project, our obvious choice was to go with the skill sets that our team was most familiar with. Hence, we chose Python for the backend, React.js for the frontend, AWS as an infrastructure, and of course, we used generative AI and large-language models

How did Fusemachines’ culture, resources and support system facilitate your hackathon journey and ability to innovate and deliver results?

Fusemachines AI Hackathon was a fascinating experience for all of us because it gave us an opportunity to work on the projects that we were interested in and also showcase some of our talents. It was really nice to see all the talent, different teams, coming together, collaborating with each other, sharing their knowledge.

It was nice to see business owners and mentors doing everything they can to help their team win the title. Yeah, it was fun. It was a good experience. Also, I’d like to thank Fusemachines for organizing this hackathon, which helped us all in many ways, and hope that Fusemachines will continue to organize such events in the future.
