The job fair will take place on June 11-12th at Delhi University North Campus ground.
Besides providing students with an unprecedented corporate exposure the University will also offer preparation workshops for job seekers. The two-day fair will be marked by motivational speeches by corporate leaders, counseling session, personality development and other requisite trainings to excel in corporate atmosphere.
Arun Hooda, President of Delhi University Students Union and the man behind the idea of DUSU job fair says, “The organized sector in the country is set to create about 1.1 million new jobs in 2013. The objective behind this job fair is to facilitate a direct interaction between job seekers and the employers while offering the candidates a formal training about what to expect and how to prepare to be successful during job interviews.” “We also stress the interviews are not only a chance to discuss what jobs are available, but to explore what opportunities might become available down the road” he added.
Asking about the response he has received from corporate for the job fair, an upbeat Hooda says, “The response has been pretty overwhelming so far as most of the major companies have given their consent to participate in the fair. Besides, India’s top educational institutions such as IIT, NIFT, D.C.E, Jamia Millia Islamia, and Amity University are also likely to participate in the fair.”
“Given the sluggish state of Indian job market the DUSU fair, with its enormous employment opportunities, could proved to be highly advantageous for the talented job-seeking youths” Hooda added.
