Recruiters preferring rural candidates, says official

Special Correspondent

VILLUPURAM: Corporate houses and multi-national companies have shown special preference for recruiting candidates from rural areas as apprentices and in regular jobs, according to A.Ayyakkannu, Director, Board of Apprenticeship Training, Southern region.

The Director told The Hindu that earlier the corporate houses and the MNCs shied away from employing the candidates with rural background on the impression that in intellectual and technical skills they would lag behind their urban counterparts.

But after selecting the candidates through the “mega job melas” organised by the Board, mostly in the rural areas, they had come to realise that there existed vast human resource potential in the villages.

Mr. Ayyakkkannu said that these companies had also ascribed two reasons for the noticeable shift in their recruitment policy: one, the candidates hailing from villages were loyal and committed to work; and secondly, they continued with the employers through thick and thin, unlike their urban counterparts.
