JOB UTSAV 2018: JOB OPPORTUNITIES GALORE
The Job Fair, Job Utsav 2018, is yet another feather in RCME’s cap and added to the variety of projects taken up by the club. It all started when the President, Rtn R M Narayanan discussed the possibility of such a fair with Equitas Development Initiatives Trust, the CSR wing of the fast growing, small finance Equitas Bank, whose Managing Director, Mr PN Vasudevan, was incidentally the recipient of the Vocational Excellence Award of RCME in 2016-17. Mahindra Pride School, a CSR initiative of the Mahindra Group, that trains and places young people from socially and economically disadvantaged communities, joined as a partner on this project.
Rtn M Murali, Managing Director of Sri Krishna Sweets and an RCMEian, was the chief guest at the inauguration of the fair on 20thOct 2018 at Sri Ramakrishna Mission Higher Secondary School, T Nagar, Chennai. In an inspiring speech, Rtn Murali recalled his father’s words of wisdom to him to remain always clean when he had decided to move to Chennai to pursue his dreams. Rtn Murali urged the job aspirants to work hard in their chosen profession and whilst wishing them well in their endeavors, asked them to etch their names in the history of their employers.
Over 30 employers were represented at the fair. By late afternoon, 486 candidates had taken up interviews and 180 had received job offers from 23 companies. A great and satisfying result indeed for a first of its kind project at RCME.
