#YIN: PIMPRI-CHINCHWAD COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING TRIES TO ERADICATE UNEMPLOYMENT
8:37 pm UTC

CHALLENGE
Each person dreams of having a good salary but not everyone’s dream is fulfilled. The country produces almost 10 lakh engineers and #Maharashtra produces one lakh engineers annually. Only 20 to 25 per cent of these students get recruited through #campusplacements. The problem of #unemployedengineers is very grave. The #YIN members of @Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering have undertaken an initiative to #reduceunemployment.

EXPERT ADVICE
PCCOE has a large #OffCampusPlacementprogramme every year where 30 to 35 companies recruit students. About 5,000 to 6,000 students from across the country participate in this fair. The college even hosts a research paper system and a job fair. All these activities have enabled several students to get good jobs, in the last five years. IBM, HP, L&T Infotech, Cognizant, Symantec, SKF, Amdocs, Quinox and many other renowned companies participate in PCCOE’s placement programme to provide #jobopportunities to #unemployed engineers. We have taken this issue of unemployment as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project and are trying to solve the problem.
@Sheetalkumar Rawandal, Dean, Training Placement, PCCOE

MENTOR
#Unemployment is a curse for many engineering students in this country. The State government, students, colleges and universities should try to solve this issue. To solve this problem, there should be an #Industry-academia collaboration. This collaboration is being organised since the last six to seven years. In such meets and collaboration training placements, officers of around 200-250 colleges from the country and representatives of more than 60 companies have been coming up with ideas and discussion on various subjects. #OffCampus placement is providing some relief to the problem of unemployment. More such initiatives will help solve issues like unemployment.

STUDENTS
It is very frustrating for a student if he/she does not get a job after investing four years and lakhs of rupees in education. This leads to depression for several students. #OffCampus recruitment and job fairs are a good way for such #unemployedstudents to get jobs.

#Unemployment is a curse and work gives pleasure. I am part of the #OffCampus recruitment since the last three years and we are helping many students get jobs through this process. We are proud of this work.
