The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has signed an MoU with jobs portal Monster India, to aid in providing job opportunities to students and fresher candidates across India.
As a part of this alliance, Monster India will act as an interface among students, colleges and recruiters by empowering institutions approved with AICTE, to map their students’ talent and provide them with relevant job opportunities.
Under the MoU, Monster India will manage and monitor campus recruitment activities of over 10,360 colleges approved by AICTE with a collective intake capacity of over 36 lakh students. This comprises students from various streams- engineering and technology; applied arts and craft; hotel management and catering; management; pharmacy and architecture and town planning.
Monster India, apart from creating and managing the platform, will also provide a facility for practicing tests to check employability, identify skill gaps through assessment and suggest proactive measures to overcome them. The practice tests include two aspects- general aptitude and core subject related. These tests are currently available for engineering streams and will be soon added for other streams as well.
This non-exclusive agreement is a part of AICTE’s efforts towards improving campus placements and attracting maximum employer participation.
