REACHING OUT: JKCs are bringing the advantages of campus recruitment at the doorstep of degree colleges.
Engineering colleges bank heavily on the success of their campus recruitment drives and they spend lots of energy attracting big companies to come searching for talent on their campuses. With the boom in IT sector and focus on Hyderabad alongside Bangalore, the demand for skilled persons is increasing.
This opportunity is not available to students of regular degree colleges, though they churn out a good number of MCA and BCA students. Some colleges are giving wider choice to students to pursue computer course as a component of their science and commerce courses.
Campus recruitment is a concept not known to most aided and Government colleges. Making up for this, the Jawahar Knowledge Centre (JKC) not only creates an alternative for students of these colleges but also exposes them to truly world-class standards as far as job situations are concerned.
It is an undisputed perception that the best students from remote and rural areas are not able to get jobs in established institutions and companies just because these companies do not visit their campuses. This is where JKCs try to bridge the gap to provide the best opportunities to students at a disadvantage.
After selecting some students who show promise of catching up with the courses, the JKCs not only focus on honing their skills to match the expectations of industry but also ensure that the one-year course is imparted reasonably well in a good environment.
Employment opportunities are growing by the day in the IT sector, as it is registering constant growth. Any skilled person is lapped up by good companies, which is evident in the successful careers that many youths have chalked out for themselves while studying in engineering colleges.
A good number of students of degree courses do not go for higher studies on completion of their undergraduate courses if they happen to find a job. In view of the competitive scenario, fresh graduates are showing interest to take up a job rather than wait for a better one.
Keeping this in mind, the JKCs seek to raise the aspirations of these potential students who have the talent and the drive required to perform well in a corporate set-up. They try to answer the students' one big question -- how to find an equally good job at the end of their degree course?
The objective of JKCs has been to help students of both English and Telugu media provided they have a good academic record. The aim is to help students of three-year degree courses in capturing better opportunities on completion of their courses. A good time awaits the brighter students, no matter how remote their background.
