Job fair for wards of policemen
The training for the candidates focussed on behaviour management, software skills, mental ability and motivation.
The Chennai police conducted a job fair for the wards of policemen in association with a HR company recently in which 37 candidates out of the 240 who appeared were successful in getting employment in various BPOs in and around the city.
In a bid to provide a level-playing field to the children of their personnel, a team of senior officers led by Commissioner of Police Letika Saran organised the fair this year.
Though this was the third time such a fair was held, the police had organised a counselling programme for the students, before they appeared for the interview.
Once they learnt the nitty-gritty, they could present themselves in a better manner as many among them had limited exposure to interviews. As they lacked communicative skills, the officers felt that a full-fledged training by a team of HR professionals would boost their confidence. As many as 240 students who had completed Plus-Two, undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses underwent the training for three days.
S.D. Anand, head of HR 7i, the company that conducted the training programme, said the training was focussed on behaviour management, software skills, mental ability and motivation. “Above all, we taught them what an interview is and how they should present themselves.”
Students who attended the session said it gave them an insight into how a real-time interview would be conducted. Participating companies included Roland Technologies, Sutherland, Allsec Technologies and Care Computer. Additional Commissioner of Police S.R. Jangid said that in the coming years, the focus would be on roping in more students and provide them intensive training.
