Placement companies like Monster.com and Naukri.com will soon have a rival as the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)
is developing a job portal for the students of technical and professional institutions approved by it. The job portal will have a database of all the students of technical and professional institutions with their academic and other details, besides a large number of private sector employers.
While the students would be able to access the portal free of cost and post their curriculum vitae, companies registered with the portal, too, will have facility to log on to the portal and search for their prospective employees.
“The job portal is being developed to benefit the students pursuing technical and professional education in the country. We have already captured students’ semester wise results
,” AICTE chairman S S Mantha said. A database of about 8000 companies
from different sectors has also been created. This will be uploaded in the portal being developed, he added.
The job portals being run by various companies usually charge some fee against their services, but the portal being developed by the Council will be absolutely free of cost for the students of AICTE approved institutions.
“AICTE provides a mail ID to each of the students of the institutions approved by it.
Using their IDs, the students can log on to the portal and post their CVs (Curriculum Vitae)
and search a suitable job. Similarly employers can also log on to the portal and look for prospective employees,” Mantha said.
While the portal could be accessed by the students free of cost, the AICTE has not yet taken any decision on whether it will be used by the employers, too, free of cost.
The Council has also collected e-mail IDs of human resource department of a large number of companies. “We will collect more ID’s of companies’ HRs and upload them in the portal. This will create a direct interface between employees and employers. This is not there in the job portals being run by various private companies,” an AICTE official said.
