The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has launched a job portal for students belonging from non-metros. This portal is designed for institutions that come under tier-II and tier-III cities. With this job portal, students as well as companies can access and upload the profiles of each other. In case of vacancy, the companies would invite the suitable candidate for online tests and then personal interview.
S. Mohamed Tajudeen, Director of Placement, B.S. Abdur Rahman University, stated that AICTE has entered at a time when there are already many independent job portals functioning in India. Tajudeen added that he is interested if TCS and Cognizant would join this portal as these companies conduct online tests for more than one lakh students. This job portal would be beneficial to students, from tier II and tier III, in terms of getting more job opportunities.
