The Telegraph | Sunday , September 18 , 2016 |  PRIYA ABRAHAM |

Bhubaneswar, Sept. 17: The All India Council for Technical Education is set to tie up with LinkedIn to ensure smoother placements for students graduating from tech institutes across the country.  AICTE chairman Anil D. Sahasrabudhe said he had last week met authorities of LinkedIn, a social networking service for professionals, and an MoU was likely to be signed soon.  “Students can have their profiles on LinkedIn and industries interested in the profiles will be able to contact them. It will be a single platform for industries, students and institutes who can connect with each other. Hiring will depend on a candidate’s expertise,” he said. “This will help students to get jobs not only in the country but also abroad. Students in rural areas and small towns will especially benefit as companies usually do not go to these institutes for campus drives.”

Sahasrabudhe was speaking at the regional convention on “Polytechnic Education in Eastern States” jointly organised by the AICTE and the state directorate of technical education and training.  The initiative will help students track suitable job openings and make applications. They will be able to connect with alumni groups and leverage them to build their professional network. Recruiters will be able filter the candidate pool ahead of campus visits and focus on interviewing whom they prefer. “For any graduate, finding the first job is the biggest concern. This move by AICTE will not only help students but also college authorities to reach out to potential recruiters,” said Mridul Patnaik, a student. – Courtesy
