KEA now brings jobs for grads

       Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) is well-known for the Common Entrance Test (CET) that it conducts, which enables students to choose an engineering seat in the college of their choice based on their ranks. After seeing its immense success, many private firms and MNCs have requested KEA to conduct a common aptitude test for graduates, that would ease the recruiters task of hiring freshers every year. This is a boon to many students, especially to the ones studying in the "lesser-known" colleges as the test serves as a common platform and does not differentiate students based on the colleges they're in. KEA has teamed up with The Karnataka Vocational Training and Skill Development Corporation (KVTSDC) and aims to revamp the currently "dying" Employement exchange by setting up a Central Placement Cell (CPC). The students are requested to register on the KEA online portal - http://www.jobraiser.com and upload their resume.
       Job seekers including engineering graduates, ITI diploma holders and SSLC pass/fail candidates can register free of cost at www.jobraiser.com or through the free helpline (080-4062 1191 to 94). Over 200 companies have already registered.
       An official from the placement cell said they also had a database of all the engineering students from the Visvesvaraya Technological University. “We provide the companies the list of eligible candidates.’’ The cell will also provide skill development training through ‘Kaushalyasiri,’ an unit of KVTSDC, which conducts various skill development programmes.
       Labour Minister B N Bacche Gowda said that every year, 1.4 lakh candidates pass out from the ITIs. “We are planning to start 1000 more ITIs in the next three years.’’ Around 1.3 lakh candidates had got jobs at 14 fairs in Karnataka in the last two years.Gowda said it was a first-of-its-kind initiative that a state government engaged in registration, assessment, training and placement of candidates. He said that all employment exchange offices in the state would be replaced with HR development cells.
