Door to jobs opens at `mela'

K.N. Murali Sankar

To be held on September 22, 23; district administration to train selected candidates


  • DIC conducts meeting with representatives of industries
  • 500 candidates selected for interviews
  • Those not successful in the interview can enrol their names for PMRY scheme
  • Private institutions to train youths

    VIJAYAWADA: The District Industries Centre (DIC) will conduct a job mela in the city on September 22 and 23.

    In the first-of-its kind mela, employers from different industries in the district will select suitable candidates to work in their organisations, while the district administration will provide pre-employment training for selected candidates.

    Interviews

    Interviews will be conducted for 500 candidates at the Andhra Pradesh Small Industries Association building in Autonagar, Of them, employers will select 190 persons for posts like receptionist, personal secretary, data entry operator, electrician, fitter, welder, mould maker, tailor, printing press operator and office boy.

    The DIC has decided to take up an employment generation drive and conducted a meeting with representatives of several industries. Responding to the proposal, many industrialists have expressed their willingness to recruit youth - even those without any experience -- through the DIC. They have asked for people in the age group of 18 to 25 years with basic knowledge in the chosen fields.

    In the first phase, four industries have sent a list of vacancies to the DIC. District Collector Navin Mittal has given his consent to arrange for basic training to selected youth through some private institutions, which are already into training to youth in several trades under the `Barefoot Mechanics' scheme.

    "Based on the requirements of the industrialists, we have selected 500 candidates from the list available with the district employment officer. We are sending call letters to the candidates mentioning the date and time of the interview," says B. Pandu Ranga Rao, General Manager of the DIC.

    Qualifications

    Officials have taken the age group and qualification of the candidates into consideration for preparing the shortlist. Eighth standard and graduation are the minimum and maximum qualifications for the vacancies announced by the industries. Once the interviews are over, those who have work experience can directly join the jobs, while the other selected candidates have to undergo a special training from the first week of October.

    "Those who fail to make it in the interview need not worry, as they can enrol their names for the Prime Minister's Rojgar Yojana (PMRY) scheme. Under this scheme, banks will provide a loan up to Rs. 1 lakh to those who have passed SSC. The amount will help them establish a small-scale unit or go for self-employment. They can also attend the job melas, which we are planned to be conduct on a regular basis," Mr. Rao says.
