'Employment News' goes online
New Delhi, Apr 7 (UNI) Net savvy youth of the country will now find it easier to search for job with the flagship publication of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry 'Employment News' going online from today.
The website www.employmentnews.gov.in, which was launched by the I&B Secretary A S Arora here, would enable the readers to interact with the job magazine team online to get a faster response to their queries relating to government vacancies and careers.
Like the weekly, the website would carry job advertisements for central and state government vacancies, PUSs, Universities, foreign institutions, admission notices for professional courses, examination notices and results of organisations like UPSC, SSC and other general recruitment bodies.
It will also have a career guidance series through which queries of job searchers would be addressed.
The Hindi version of the website 'Rozgar Samachar will also be launched soon.
''With the country's 40 per cent population in the employment category, the website was expected to serve a very useful purpose,'' Mr Arora said inaugurating the website.
Apart from highlighting the job opportunities, the website would also carry articles on different career prospects in emerging and conventional fields.
The decision to launch the website was taken in accordance with the recommendation of the 18th Report of the Standing Committee on Information Technology to make the weekly available online to widen its reach.
In future, the website may also carry vacancies in the private sector, the I&B secretary said.
For the first time since its publication started three decades ago, Employment News will now be published from a southern and a north-easter state to widen its reach to the remotest corners of the country, Director Publications Umakant Misra said.
He said the weekly has been generating enough revenues through advertisements to pay for itself.
The Weekly is published in Urdu too.
