Aspirants from different areas of Delhi flocked to the Delhi University’s sports stadium on Thursday to participate in the second edition of job fair. It is a two-day fair organised by the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) and Shine.com.
About 35 companies have put up stalls in the stadium, explaining aspirants about prospective careers and nature of job. Some of these companies are accepting resumes of applicants, while some are conducting tests and holding interviews in makeshift rooms.
Companies like Genpact, Spice Jet, Ask.me, Punjab National Bank and organizations like the International Committee of the Red Cross were present at the fair.
Pramod Nigam, a job aspirant had reached the DU stadium from south Delhi. “I have six years experience in retail, so am applying for a ground staff position in Spice Jet. Such fairs make it easier for us as we can apply to many organisations at one time,” Nigam said. He will complete his graduation this year from the university’s school of open learning.
Bharatiya Janata Party member and MP Ramesh Bidhuri inaugurated the job fair and congratulated DUSU office bearers for organising the event.
“As a student when one passes college, you are clueless on what is to be done in the future. Even when I was young I was equally clueless. Such fairs are a platform to understand various opportunities,” said Bidhuri.
There were also several Delhi University students who attended the job fair. “When one is confused about choosing a career, such fairs help. It also gives an understanding on how interviews are done,” said Soni Kumari, a student of Delhi University’s department of German and Romance studies.
