According to a 2013 report by Economic Times, out of 1.5 Million Engineers that are trained every year in India – a number that is greater than the China and US combined – only 20 to 33 percent get a job, a lot which are under-paying, and below their technical qualifications. Not to mention, the joining dates for freshers are usually delayed by a prolonged period of time,from six months to a year, if they manage to bag a seat during college placement. Similar trends are observed in industries apart from the IT and Engineering, where there is a significant number of unemployed candidates going through the exhaustive process of job hunting.
On the other hand, companies also find it hard to find employable freshers, given that there is more focus on number of students, rather than quality of education being imparted, in most colleges. “The world of work is evolving. Employers increasingly don’t care what you know, [as] they focus on what you can do with that knowledge,” Manish Sabharwal, chairman of TeamLease, told ET.
To combat unemployment, attending on−ground job fairs is highly suggested to anyone looking for a job, but most of these events are generally very time−consuming, mis−managed, lack variety in terms of job profiles available, and don’t go beyond the conventional career industry. Since, you’d also see a huge footfall for an event like this, your chances of one-on-one interaction with anyone in a senior management position are also slim, and there isn’t any definitive mechanism in place, that’d allow you to track your application, if you submit your resume for a job there.
Keeping in mind all these problems that an offline job fair is riddled with, AMCAT decided to organize a one of a kind ONLINE job fair, to connect you – a skilled candidate, with employers looking to get more hands on their team.
