Virtual Job Fairs Come To Rescue of Rural Youth

Because of the mass exodus of migrant labor from the state, Maharashtra faces a manpower crunch.  “Virtual job fairs” in some rural areas of Ahmednagar and Solapur are connecting recruiters from Pune to job aspirants. 

Job fairs: Golden opportunity for local youth

This was a golden opportunity for local youth, as several jobs are up for grabs in manufacturing, retail, banking, finance, agriculture, e-commerce, and several other sectors, he said. However, job aspirants, especially those from rural areas, cannot travel to city firms for interviews due to the ongoing health crisis and lockdown, which was why “virtual job fairs” were the need of the hour, Satpute said.

These Virtual job fairs are organizing in NCP MLA Rohit Pawar’s constituency of Karjat Jamkhed in Ahmednagar district and at Barshi in Solapur district.

“Although the state government has allowed industries in MIDC areas to resume work, companies are facing an acute shortage of labor, as the migrant workforce has left the state,” said Shriram Satpute, the founder of Job Showcase, a Pune-based job portal and the brain behind the initiative.

NCP MLA Rohit Pawar, who has facilitated these online interviews at his offices in Karjat Jamkhed, said so far, they have received over 3,000 job applications fr the “Virtual job fairs”.

Job fairs: How rural youth were informed about recruitment?

In addition, explaining the process, Satpute said Google forms were circulated among job aspirants in the area, and based on their qualifications, skills, and work experience, the data were segregated and sent to the respective firms. In keeping with the norms of social distancing, only 50 candidates were called at a particular venue for virtual interviews every day.

For instance, “In Karjat-Jamkhed, at least 100 job aspirants were selected by six to seven firms in the last four to five days,” he said.

On clarifying “Virtual job fairs”. Pawar said,ย “We created this platform at seven of my offices in the constituency and facilitated the online interviews through video link adhering to social distancing norms”.
