Typically, candidates have a chance of getting hired in the ratio of 240:1 in view of several filters set by the recruiters. Although the odds don’t appear to be in the candidate's favor, the chances of setting yourself up for success skyrocket when you become truly job ready, says Mr. Subhashis Modak, Learning and Development Head at Udaan Aviation Academy.
“Employment” has been one of the prominent yardsticks to measure success for every young adult. A significant part of the Indian workforce is either unemployed (without a job) or underemployed (employed way lower than their true potential). Honestly, there is very little to complain about the national economy and the government for the ordeal. Instead, it’s time to address it. And get your dream job without having to seek references from mamas and chachas added Mr. Nikhil Poojary, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Udaan Aviation Academy.
At Udaan AA and JCI, it gives us immense contentment to address pressing problems like the above, stated the representatives of both the organisations.
Udaan runs initiatives like Udaan Paathshaala that aims to enhance the job readiness quotient of youth and mentor them to take up the right career choices. The initiative also works with school children and explores diverse career opportunities beyond the normal such as aviation, logistics, etc. On the other hand, JCI Buddhapurnima Hyderabad, a unit of the global non-profit body of JCI strives to set-up this initiative as a launchpad to uplift all those whose careers have taken a hit by the pandemic.
Mr. Tanmay Palkar, Co-founder & Digital Presence Consultant, Udaan Aviation cited fake job consultancies, theory-focussed degree curriculums and college placement limitations only add to the woes. Developing job-readiness skills may be a dependable solution; however, getting trained on those skills doesn’t really come for free - an investment of tens of hours and thousands of rupees comes hand-in-hand. For a fact, ambitious candidates happen to spend even upto 20 thousand rupees to set their profile up for the market. It pays-off in some cases; in other cases, it doesn’t.
This is the most sought after initiative and we urge unemployed and underemployed to utilise this opportunity and enhance their job readiness.
