The minister launched ‘Your Right First Job’ a job counselling book at a skill development conference organised by the Association of Lady Entrepreneurs of AP (ALEAP) in Hyderabad on Saturday. ‘Your Right First Job’ is written by T Muralidharan, founder and chairman of TMI recruiting group. Equipping youth with skills is the need of the hour in India and unless youth are trained and made employable, the problem of unemployment cannot be solved, Dattatreya said after releasing book.
‘Your Right First Job’ gives practical tips to graduates for landing in perfect job suitable to one’s personality. It provides tips on resume writing, interviews, among other career related issues.
Finding a job suitable to one’s personality, in the right industry, with the right employer, in right city and at right level are five essentials for building a successful career, pointed out T Muralidharan, a career counsellor and author, who has been involved in assessing and placing lakhs of youngsters in over 400 corporate companies.
First job can make or break a career. Therefore youngsters should concentrate on not just getting a job but finding a right job. Every aspect right from job role to industry to city determines the future of youngster. Therefore all aspects have to be given equal importance, he elaborated.
Addressing a gathering of youngsters on the occasion, Muralidharan busted several job market myths.
“Good salary package or reputed employer does not mean that it is a good job. Youngsters should not go by just names but should single out a job which suits their personality and give them scope for growth. He asked youngsters to select an employer who gives freedom for them to make mistakes and learn. ALEAP president Ramadevi was also present on the occasion.
