The collaboration will ensure better campus placements and increased participation by recruiters in AICTE-approved colleges.
With a larger vision of education, employment and employability, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has signed an MoU with Monster India to provide more job opportunities to students and freshers in the country. The aim is to improve campus placements and attract more recruiters’ participation in AICTE-approved colleges.
Acting as an interface between students, colleges and recruiters, Monster India will map the skills of the students in AICTE approved colleges and provide them relevant job opportunities.
As per the MoU, Monster India will be responsible for managing and monitoring campus recruitment activities of over 10,360 colleges approved by AICTE, which have more than 36 lakh students. These students are from various streams, such as engineering, technology, applied arts and craft, hotel management, catering management, pharmacy, architecture and town planning.
Monster India will also help students with practice tests to check employability, identify skill gaps through assessment and suggest proactive measures to overcome them.
The practice tests to be provided belong to two categories—general aptitude and core subject related. The tests are currently available for engineering streams only, but will soon be available for other streams also.
Speaking about the MoU, Anil D Sahasrabudhe, chairman, AICTE, said “Such an MoU will definitely help college students and fresher candidates seeking career opportunities. The young population is going to set the stage for a bright India tomorrow.”
He further added “It has been the endeavour of AICTE and colleges to provide the right platform and ensure that maximum students get employed. Keeping in line with this, we firmly believe that Monster India is one of the most credible names in the recruitment solutions industry to support us in making India an employable nation.”
Commenting on the MoU signed, Mr. Sanjay Modi, managing director (APAC & Middle East), Monster.com said, “At Monster India, our endeavour is to enhance employability by connecting the right people to the right jobs. Our association with AICTE will allow greater access to students and colleges, for the large pool of employers present on our data base and provide relevant job opportunities. We are aware of the huge skill demand and supply equation that currently exists in our country. However, with 12 million people entering the workforce every year, the focus should be on enhancing high-level thinking skills, creativity, machine learning and communication.”
