Confidence, capacity key to success: Dy Speaker

Yogish Bhat inaugurates Udyoga Mela in Mangalore

“Confidence along with our capacity and sincerity is the key for success. Improve your skills and be confidant to be self employed,” suggested Assembly Deputy Speaker N Yogish Bhat.

Addressing job seekers, after inaugurating ‘Udyoga Mela,’ a job fair organised by Karnataka Government Department for Collegiate Education at Government First Grade College, here on Tuesday, Yogish Bhat said that in the State, there are as many as 27,000 students trained in skill development by 6 companies in last year.

“If the students fail to get jobs in job fairs, it does not matter,” he said and added that participating in job fairs gives valuable experience, as it gives ideas about practical needs. “It would help a lot to develop our skills,” he opined.

Good response

‘Udyoga Mela’ was an initiative from the State government to create job opportunities for the government college students of the State. More than 900 students from various colleges in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kodagu participated in the fair. More than 27 companies from IT, automobile and retail sectors offered job for the students.

State Department for Collegiate Education Joint Director Prof Seema, Government First Grade College Principal Radhakrishna and Department of College Education Representative A Dorine were present.

Fear of language

‘Udyoga Mela,’ organised at Government First Grade College was a great opportunity for government college students of the region to take up a profession. However, it seemed that many students could not overcome the language problem though they are confident about their skills.

Harish, a BA student from Vamadapadavu College had applied for a BPO post in a private company. After facing an interview, he said that interviewers gave importance to language.

“The entire interview was in English. I feel negative about my chances. If it was in Kannada, it might have helped a lot,” he paused.

Pranupa M G from same college had applied for a post in ICICI Bank. Looking very enthusiastic to have a job, Pranupa plans to obtain her masters degree from an open university. “The questions were subject related. We should be ready to work outside the State. They asked about my language skills, in which I am weak,” she said about the interview.
