VIJAYAWADA: At a time when most engineering graduates coming out of colleges in small cities (Tier-II and III cities), find it difficult to get suitable employment with most of the industries limiting their employment drives to Tier-I cities, an organisation ‘Employability Bridge’ announced its formal entry into the state with the sole aim to provide a platform to students from small cities and towns in securing job opportunities.

While engineering graduates are looking for jobs, managements of various companies are looking for students to recruit to suit their needs. But, there is a wide gap between both. “Our aim is to fill that gap and provide the students with right opportunities and industries with right candidates,” Emmanuel Justus, chief executive officer of Employability Bridge said.

Employability Bridge is a company that is partnered with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and is already on the job for providing the needed skilled workforce for companies across the country and to facilitate jobs for graduates from various educational institutions across non-metros in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. Now, it has come to Andhra Pradesh, where it feels there is lot of scope for industrial development and jobs.

Speaking to Express, Justus said under the concept ‘FLAG’ (First Look at Aspiring Graduates), they are going to open up access to better job opportunities by aggregating the students and companies in a pre-planned manner for Engineering students coming out of colleges in Chittoor, Tirupati, Nellore and Guntur cities.

“As most of the campus recruitment drives by industries and companies limited to Engineering Colleges in Metros, we have selected the colleges in small cities, where students are deprived of employment opportunities,” Emanuel said.

The chief also added that as they will conduct the FLAG programme by involving a number of companies at one location, there is every possibility for most of the students attending the programme to secure a job.
