VIJAYAWADA: At a time when most engineering graduates coming out of colleges in small cities (Tier-II and III cities), find it difficult to get suitable employment with most of the industries limiting their employment drives to Tier-I cities, an organisation ‘Employability Bridge’ announced its formal entry into the state with the sole aim to provide a platform to students from small cities and towns in securing job opportunities. While engineering graduates are looking for jobs, managements of various companies are looking for students to recruit to suit their needs. But, there is a wide gap between both. “Our aim is to fill that gap and provide the students with right opportunities and industries with right candidates,” Emmanuel Justus, chief executive officer of Employability Bridge said.
Employability Bridge is a company that is partnered with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and is already on the job for providing the needed skilled workforce for companies across the country and to facilitate jobs for graduates from various educational institutions across non-metros in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. Now, it has come to Andhra Pradesh, where it feels there is lot of scope for industrial development and jobs. Speaking to Express, Justus said under the concept ‘FLAG’ (First Look at Aspiring Graduates), they are going to open up access to better job opportunities by aggregating the students and companies in a pre-planned manner for Engineering students coming out of colleges in Chittoor, Tirupati, Nellore and Guntur cities. “As most of the campus recruitment drives by industries and companies limited to Engineering Colleges in Metros, we have selected the colleges in small cities, where students are deprived of employment opportunities,” Emanuel said. The chief also added that as they will conduct the FLAG programme by involving a number of companies at one location, there is every possibility for most of the students attending the programme to secure a job. – Courtesy / Employability Bridge — a smart and futuristic platform that enables companies access to eligible students and provides students the ability to understand the expectations from the companies ahead. Employability Bridge is the only platform that matches the expectations from both students and companies through continuous engagement. Our intelligence enables student success through participation and provides easy access to eligible students from multiple colleges in a single day through FLAG.
WHY EMPLOYABILITY BRIDGE ?
Like a candidate graduating from a college located anywhere in the country who has a dream to start his career in his area of interest and matches with his abilities, the companies in turn are always looking for their ideal candidates – wherever they may be. To achieve this, there are placement-recruitment drives on-campus or the conventional job sites which try to co-ordinate placement efforts. These activities mostly end up as large-scale, expensive exercises in terms of costs and time – and there is enough on record regarding the resulting outcomes which usually, never fully satisfy the recruitment goals of the company or the placement target of institutions. Now is the urgent need for intelligent hiring methodologies and a smart and efficient platform that can clearly address the distinction between need and want; requirement and recruitment; a job fair vs a fair job creation; Employability and Employment. And here is where Employability Bridge makes the difference. Feel free to explore the site on what we could do for you.
SMART PLATFORM. INTELLIGENT HIRING.
COMMON PERCEPTIONS CHALLENGES FACED BY A STUDENT, COMPANIES AND INSTITUTIONS:
1. STUDENTS : Only students studying in top-ranking colleges & Metros can get access to diverse set of companies across industries/sector and companies also prefer to go there only. However in reality the companies are always open to getting the best talent wherever they are – and Employability Bridge can help bridge this gap.
2. COMPANIES : Especially the start-ups, smaller companies of today who will be the path-breakers of tomorrow are also on the look-out for freshers but they are not able to reach out to the top talent of an institution and present themselves – as the candidates are not aware of them and have pre-conceived notions based on their limited exposure. The candidates however can be inspired by wanting to be part of a new ‘idea’, an energetic start-up or a fast growing new player – if they are inspired – and here’s where Employability Bridge comes in.
3. INSTITUTIONS : Every institution strive to have their students have a successful career post-graduation irrespective of their location – rural or city suburban areas. This enables the institution to impress on the future students and parents of wards.But their best talent are not visible along with their potential for the corporate to access due to geographical locations and other factors. However, a select portfolio of companies are willing to look at the diverse student talent pool available in such institutions if they are ready to reach out and present themselves – on a mutual, one-on-one platform that supports intelligent hiring methodologies – and Employability Bridge becomes the ideal confluence for this to happen.
