Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, Honorable Minister of State (Independent Charge) Industry and Commerce, launches India’s first Job Reference book – An Expert’s Guide to the Top 101 Entry-Level Jobs for MBAs and Graduates – in Delhi
5 million-plus young graduates passing out from various educational institutions annually and over 10 million active job seekers will benefit from this "first-of-its-kind" Job Counselling book – An Expert’s Guide to 101 Entry Level Jobs for MBAs and Graduates, authored by Mr T Muralidharan. Priced attractively at only Rs 299, this 378 page book must be read, in addition to every job seeker, by every college Placement officer and every parent who are the natural job counsellors to the job seeker.
This book is a sequel to the best selling first book of the same author titled "An Expert’s Guide to Your Right First Job" also published by Rupa Publications.
"The IT industry will be creating less and less jobs for fresh college pass outs. The youth must think beyond IT and ITeS industry but information on jobs in the other sectors are sketchy. There is a need for a reference book which will not only list the jobs but also explain why should a youngster join that job role and why should he or she build a career in that industry. That was the purpose of the book" said Mr. T. Muralidharan, the author of the book and Chairman of India's leading employment intermediary - the TMI Group. This book covers 13 industry sectors apart from these two prominent sectors and lists over 52 jobs in these sectors. The book also covers 10 job roles in the IT and Its for graduates and 39 job roles in 8 functional areas common in every business organization.
While launching the book, Honorable Minister, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, congratulated Mr. Muralidharan and said, “This book will not only be useful for the job seekers but also for the government who is constantly working towards creating employment opportunities for the young and budding generation. Mr. Muralidharan’s three years of research has given us the background material on which the government’s strategy to create jobs would gain ground”.
She further added, “In fact we over - burden our students in schools and colleges rather than helping them equip the right skill sets. More than academics students require counselling and that is what would make a difference to their knowledge base and make them employable.”
"Most of the graduates start looking for jobs shortly before and immediately after graduation. Under extreme placement pressure, most choose the first available job and realize within three months that it is not the job they want to do. There is a desperate need for job counselling in the campuses and every graduate has to make an informed choice. Every parent must ensure that the child reads this book before taking up any job” added, T. Muralidharan
Talking about sincere efforts of Modi Govt. in creating jobs, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman said “Job creation is one of the top agenda for Modi Government. Whenever any project comes for approval in front of the Cabinet, the Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi always asks- seeking approval for your proposal is fine but how many job this project will create and how will it help in employability? ”
