At the recent National Employment Service job fair in Malabar, Labour Minister T.P. Ramakrishnan announced the government’s plans to launch a jobs portal targeted at India’s youth.
The Minister said the portal would be launched shortly with the support of the Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence and Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants Limited.
The job portal is also aimed at tackling poor language skills of candidates which is a major hurdle in gaining better employment. New short-term courses to fine-tune the communication skills of young applicants will be made available through the portal.
