eVans to help unemployed youth of the Hyderabad City
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) on Tuesday signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with a city-based HR service provider, TMI e2E Academy. in an effort to provide jobs to the unemployed youth of the city,
As part of the MoU, both institutions will conceptualise an employment van (eVan) and establish employment zones across GHMC limits. The services will be provided free of cost to candidates.
GHMC commissioner Somesh Kumar said that he is hopeful the scheme will provide employment opportunities to at least 10,000 to 12,000 people within a year.
He said that employment is one of the biggest challenges for the youth, as Hyderabad is the capital of the new state of Telangana and draws thousands of migrants apart from ones living in the city, in the hope of employment and better lives.
The GHMC would provide place for establishment of the employment zones. Presently, it has identified one location in the five zones which will be dubbed as employment zones.
The focus of these eVans and employment zones is to disseminate all the job openings in the private and public sector. It would also include jobs in Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) as well.
The eVan is a mobile unit which will be equipped with the resources required to register a candidate. The unit will move around different locations, especially slums, to spread awareness about the programme. Once registered, the candidate will be asked to visit the closest employment zone and undergo an assessment.
The eVan and employment zones will provide free registration of unemployed youth and assist them in mapping and job hunting. It would also conduct a mock interview and schedule interviews for the placement for those who have registered.
